Over a month has passed since the Islamic State, ISIL, released separate videos showing an ISIS member beheading James Foley, an American journalist and video reporter, and Steven Sotloff, an Israeli-American journalist. Since the video releases, the FBI has been working feverishly to identify the ISIS members responsible for the brutal murders and on Thursday the FBI announced that they just might have succeeded. “The United States believes it has identified the masked Islamic State militant who murdered two kidnapped American journalists in separate videotaped beheadings,” FBI chief James Comey said. What the FBI plans to do with the new information is yet to be announced.
