British forensic experts concluded soon after the video of ISIS beheading journalist James Foley, that the video was in all likelihood staged using “camera trickery and slick post-production techniques.”
An international forensic science company which does work for police forces across Britain found that, “James Foley’s execution may have been staged, with the actual murder taking place off-camera,” reported the Telegraph.
The experts noted that despite Foley’s executioner appearing to draw a knife across the neck area at least six times, no blood is seen. The video itself does not show the actual beheading, merely a still image which purports to show Foley’s decapitated head resting on his body.
“Aymenn al-Tamimi, a fellow at the Middle East Forum think-tank, remarked that ISIS has greatly improved their video production over the last few years,” reports the Inquisitr. “Techniques to fake a beheading would not be difficult for them to manage, and the video doesn’t exactly leave their failures on the hidden: Despite six slashing motion to James’ neck, no blood can be seen in the video; Foley’s reaction seems to be very disconnected with what is actually occurring, the analysts said.”
Foley also appeared to be very calm, cool, and collected as he read out his statement, a demeanor completely contradictory to the notion that he was about to be brutally executed.
The experts also concluded that a blip in the footage suggests Foley misread one of his lines from the script and had to re-film the sequence.
The obvious question that arises out of this is why ISIS militants, who have quickly developed a global reputation for their barbarity and carelessness for human life, would not simply have beheaded Foley on camera without the need to stage the event.
For years we have exhaustively documented how so-called Al-Qaeda, Bin Laden and other terrorist propaganda videos were in fact produced by companies working on behalf of the Pentagon and the Central Intelligence Agency.
It has also emerged that the identity of the individual seen staging the murder, one Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, is a former rapper from a wealthy family who left London to fight in Syria. Bary fits the profile of an informant for British security services.
The beheading video has been used as a poster child to push for a renewed U.S. military strike on Syria, a prospect that was derailed last year after it emerged that a supposed chemical weapons attack which was blamed on the Assad government had in all likelihood been carried out by western-backed rebels.
U.S. officials have cited the “new context” for confronting ISIS that was spurred by the release of the Foley beheading video, with Washington signaling its intention on Saturday to prepare a new military assault on Syria.
A leaked video appears to show the staged beheading of James Foley:

The above photo at Leak Source and the video of the IS studio filmed fake beheading scene matches in many ways and appears to be a film of the making of the fake James Foley execution video as the moving photograph above brilliantly demonstrates.
Many other small details from the James Foley video appear to match. These include the way the “Jihad John” character tucks his pants into his boots, the pose of the Foley character, along with the foreground landscape which differs between the fake execution videos. The Cyber Berkut hacking group claim they found the footage on the phone of a staffer of John McCain.a politician with extensive historical links to jihadist fighters and terror groups as this photograph and many others indicate.
A 2010 Washington Post article authored by former Army Intelligence Officer Jeff Stein features a detailed account of how the CIA admittedly filmed a fake Bin Laden video during the run up to the 2003 Iraq war.
Other CIA officials admitted to planning several fake videos featuring former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein, one of which would depict the leader engaged in sexual acts with a teenage boy.
“It would look like it was taken by a hidden camera,” said one of the former officials. “Very grainy, like it was a secret videotaping of a sex session.”
A couple of weeks later ISIS released another faked beheading video. Of course, these videos are not meant to be exposed as fake. They are meant to create fear for the American citizens, perhaps especially journalist that expose such chicanery. They sell us phony fear and terrorism, we buy it; they in turn sell us security and we purchase it with the cost of giving up up certain freedoms.
Here is, what appears to be, the same crisis actor who was supposedly a former classmate (Alex Israel) of the alleged Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza; who now is playing the sister (Katy Foley) of James Foley, the supposed behead victim on the fake video above.
Where did the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) come from? How did this terrorist group go from an unknown phantom to seizing vast stretches of territory in Syria and Iraq in less than a year? Who is sponsoring ISIS and for what purpose? In a series of hard-hitting articles, Canadian writer Brandon Martinez uncovers the hidden hand of Israel and the West behind the meteoric rise of ISIS and the underlying Zionist destabilization agenda that it serves. Martinez cuts through mainstream media hype and disinformation which seeks to confound the masses about ISIS’s true origins as well as whitewash the critical role of the United States, Saudi Arabia and Israel in spawning the Takfiri militants who have besieged both Iraq and Syria. Martinez traces the roots of the conspiracy back to Israel’s Oded Yinon plan which aims to fracture and balkanize the Middle East.
Did the “Islamic State” spring full-blown into spontaneous being as the fanatical scourge of the Middle East, or was it helped along by state sponsors?
In ISIS IS US, a panel of cutting-edge researchers tell what ISIS really is, and what has been going on behind the scenes in Iraq, Syria and Libya. The conclusion: ISIS is Iran-Contra all over again.
In the 1980’s, the Reagan administration wanted to topple the government of Nicaragua, using right-wing mercenaries, death squads, based in Honduras. But Congress passed a law prohibiting that. So they went around it, by financing the Contras via Iran.
Three decades later, Washington hawks wanted to topple the elected governments of Libya and Syria, and crush the popular resistance in Iraq. Once again, they planned to do this using death squads. So they got around Congress by having Qatar and the Saudis finance it.
To set up death squads in Iraq, they sent John Negroponte as Ambassador to Baghdad in 2004. The same guy they sent to Honduras as Ambassador from 1981 to 1985. Then in 2011, they sent some of those killers from Iraq to Libya to overthrow Qaddafi, with NATO air cover. From Libya, they were sent on to Syria to start the killing there, in a dirty war directed by Negroponte’s right-hand man, US Ambassador Ford.
Over the next couple years, the embedded media perversely pinned the killings of civilians on Assad, “staying on message” with the script for another NATO invasion. Only Russia’s UN veto spared Syria. Still, the sheikhs kept on financing the “rebels” – and the US pretended to fight them – until they grew into the ISIS terror army. Today, in spite of Russian military intervention, ISIS and its backers are not giving up.
Even Fox News is saying the US coalition against ISIS is a myth. The authors of ISIS IS US dig deeper, to bring you the full story.
