FBI Asks the Public for Help in Identifying ISIS Militant

The FBI has been analyzing an ISIS video featuring an English-speaking militant they believe to be from the United States, and now they’re appealing to the American people for help in identifying him.

The FBI posted about this on its website today, explaining that this particular individual was making “pro-ISIL pronouncements intended to appeal to a Western audience.” And the worst part of the video is that you see him standing over people believed to be prisoners and forcing them to dig their own graves shortly before they are killed.

FBI official Michael Steinbach said, “We’re hoping that someone might recognize this individual and provide us with key pieces of information. No piece of information is too small.”

The FBI set up an easy tip site here.
