WATCH! ISIS propaganda report with captive John Cantlie; US Special Forces tried to rescue him in Nov

NOTE: Analysts believe John Cantlie is participating in the videos under duress.

The video marks the eighth time Cantlie appeared in an ISIS video, which are targeted toward western audiences and often cite specific claims made by western media in the weeks or months before they are released. In the first, released in September 2014, Cantlie acknowledged he was a prisoner, but had “nothing to lose” as his life was in the hands of his kidnappers.

And in October, Cantlie appeared in Kobani, Syria, claiming on behalf of the militants that the embattled city was under its control.

U.S. special forces attempted to rescue Cantlie in a failed November raid. Ultimately, as Cantlie put it in a November video, “we weren’t there.”

Neither the U.S. nor the U.K. negotiates with jihadi groups who kidnap its citizens, as a matter of policy.
