ISIS Claim Of American Hostage's Death Is Awfully Convenient
ISIS claims U.S. aid worker Kayla Mueller died in Jordanian airstrikes but the only proof are photos of a collapsed building.By Elizabeth Hagedorn | February 7, 2015
ISIS is offering these photos as proof American hostage Kayla Mueller died when the Syrian town of Raqqa was bombed by Jordanian planes. Here’s why you should be skeptical.
Not the least of which is, ISIS is a terrorist group with every reason to lie and manipulate. But more importantly, if you think about the circumstances surrounding Mueller’s alleged death, it doesn't quite add up.
Two key points to consider: ISIS says no jihadists were killed, only Mueller. And Jordan says its airstrikes targeted only ISIS weapons depots. Assuming both are true, why would Mueller have been held in a weapons depot … alone? (Video via Royal Jordanian Air Force)
