ISIS Threatening to Behead Another American Hostage

As the airstrikes against ISIS continue (known as shock-and-yawn among many in the military), the terror army is threatening to behead another American hostage. Peter Kassig is a former Army ranger who was taken captive by ISIS terrorists in October 2013. Kassig was in Syria working as a volunteer with a relieve agency at the time. More from Fox News:

Kassig served in the Army from June 2006 and September 2007. He was a member of the 75th Ranger regiment and served four months in Iraq in 2007 before being medically discharged at the rank of private first class in September of that year.

According to the family, Kassig formed the aid organization Special Emergency Response and Assistance, or SERA, in Turkey to provide aid and assistance to Syrian refugees. He began delivering food and medical supplies to Syrian refugee camps in 2012 and is also a trained medical assistant who provided trauma care to injured Syrian civilians and helped train 150 civilians in providing medical aid.

Kassig's parents received a letter from their son late last week about his situation and are begging for his release.

Last week ISIS beheaded British aid worker Alan Henning and threatened that Kassig is next. Prime Minister David Cameron has ordered a search for "Jihad John," the man see carrying out the executions in videos with an English accent.
