On Tuesday, President Obama said in his SOTU address, “In Iraq and Syria, American leadership — including our military power — is stopping ISIL’s advance.”
Well, now ISIS has beheaded Japanese hostage Haruna Yukawa. A picture of Yukawa’s body was held by fellow Japanese hostage Kenji Goto.
ISIS claims that it will release Goto if Jordan releases Sajida Mubarak Atrous al-Rishawi, a female terrorist who was arrested and sentenced to death for her participation in the November 2005 suicide bombing in Amman.
So much for stopping ISIS’ advance.
