Horrific report: ISIS burns Jordanian pilot alive, releases video

Videos of beheadings weren’t graphic enough.

Islamic State terrorists released a video on Tuesday that appears to show a Jordanian fighter pilot being burned alive by his captors, according to the New York Post.

The footage showed the pilot, identified as Mu’ath al-Kassasbeh, engulfed in flames inside a metal cage.

The burning marked a new descent into savagery for a war that has already seen executions being captured on video for propaganda purposes, as well as the gruesome beheadings of American and international journalists being recorded and distributed.

The terrorist savagery has provoked backlashes, though, such as the Iraqi man who killed seven ISIS guards at a checkpoint on Sunday.

And the government of Jordan itself threatened to kill all of its Islamic State prisoners if the pilot were murdered.

While authenticity of the video hadn’t been determined, the Jordanian army has officially informed Kassasbeh’s family of his death and a state of mourning has been declared on state television, Al Jazeera reported.

Jordan’s King Abdullah is also cutting short a visit to Washington after news of the murder.

Meanwhile, President Obama deplored the savagery, but still couldn’t name the ideology behind the group that calls itself the Islamic State.

“Should this video be authentic, it’s just one more indication of the viciousness and barbarity of this organization,” Obama said.

“Whatever ideology they’re operating off of, it’s bankrupt.”
