Op-Ed: Who would have believed even one year ago that we would be viewing footage of even one of our nationals being beheaded by a cruel band of brutes? But sadly we have now viewed footage of three such murders.
Most people have viewed at least part of the footage, or stills, if not the filmed events from start to finish. Who wants to watch gruesome footage of a murder unless you have to? At one time the jury seemed to be out as to whether the footage of each beheading was real or a false flag but surely now there is no denying the truth of what is happening? For this writer the footage has echoes of the Yorkshire Ripper's deadly killing spree some years ago in the UK. Peter Sutcliffe the actual ripper evaded justice for some time mainly because of a false trail which convinced police that the killer was from the Newcastle area of the UK. From the moment the tape of a man claiming to be the killer was aired police were blinkered. As he tormented the investigation's lead officers saying 'I'm Jack' the tape went public and the search was on for the wrong man. During the years the police searched for a man with a Geordie accent Sutcliffe remained free to kill again and kill he did; three more victims. DNA caught up with hoaxer Wearside Jack as he was now called and he was jailed in 2006 for eight years. So what is the link to the ISIS beheadings? It was obvious from day one, as soon as his voice was heard, that the fake Yorkshire Ripper was reading his lies from a script of sorts. In the recent brutal footage of beheadings each victim has read from a prepared statement. The tone of voice indicates that. The tone of voice of others involved in the video appears similarly staged. Rather than indicating the footage of each killing is fake it appears to indicate it is staged. It may be that it is carefully edited. It could be that it is filmed with staged beheadings and the dreadful deed carried out later. But in my honest opinion the victims were all killed. There are no screams of terror, no attempts to fight off the kidnappers but that does not prove a false flag. It proves those involved have access to technology and have certain skills but it does not prove they are not murderers. So what do you think?
