ISIS Releases A New Video Of Captured Journalist John Cantlie

The militant Islamic State group has released another propaganda video featuring captured British journalist John Cantlie.

The video, which again shows Cantlie speaking in front of a camera in an orange jumpsuit, was released just after the US and five Arab nations launched airstrikes on ISIS targets in Syria Monday night.

In the clip, which lasts 5 minutes and 55 seconds, Cantlie warns viewers that the US is leading us into the "Gulf War III."

“In this program, we’ll see how the Western governments are hastily marching towards all-out war in Iraq and Syria without paying any heed to the lessons of the recent past,” Cantlie said. “Not since Vietnam have we witnessed such a potential mess in the making.”

The video is the latest in a series of programs that Cantlie has purportedly been forced to record in order to "show you the truth" about ISIS and Western media propoganda. Cantlie describes himself as "the British citizen abandoned my government, and long-term prisoner of the Islamic State."

His first video came one week ago, his outfit and tone hauntingly reminiscent of the two US journalists recently beheaded by ISIS on camera, James Foley and Steven Sotloff. Cantlie's videos, however, are different from the other ISIS hostages because he is not kneeling before a killer and a knife but instead seated at a desk reading what appears to be a scripted message.
