DEVELOPING: Jordan said it had executed 2 prisoners early Wednesday after a new video surfaced on the Internet Tuesday showing ISIS burning alive a Jordanian pilot the terror group had held since December.
Government spokesman Mohammed al-Momani said that prisoners Sajida al-Rishawi and Ziad al-Karbouli were executed. Al-Rishawi has been on death row for her role in a triple hotel bombing in the Jordanian capital Amman in 2005 that killed dozens. Over the past week, Jordan had twice offered to swap her for the pilot, Lt. Muath al-Kaseasbeh. However, officials have said his captors did not deliver proof he was still alive, and the swap never moved forward.
The 44-year-old Iraqi woman's suicide belt did not detonate at the time of the Amman attack and she fled the scene, but was quickly arrested. After a televised confession, she recanted, but her appeal was turned down.
Al-Rishawi had family ties to the Iraqi branch of Al Qaeda, a precursor of ISIS. Ziad Al-Karbuli was a former aide to Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the Jordanian Al Qaeda operative who was killed in 2006.
The 22-minute video, which Jordan said is authentic, brought a grisly end to speculation into the fate of Lt. Muath al-Kaseasbeh, 26, who was captured when his plane crashed during a bombing mission in Syria Dec. 24. The video, which reports said could have been made more than a month ago, shows the pilot standing in a cage with a line of fuel leading to him, which is then ignited, causing him to burst into flames. Islamic State had previously sought to trade Al-Kaseasbeh for Sajida al-Rishawi, an Iraqi woman who is in a Jordanian prison for her role in a 2005 suicide bomb attack that killed 60 people in Amman.

Isn't that amazing, and we have an idiot setting in the White House that won't allow water boarding! He is so out of touch (or is he)? Bottom line a lot of Americans will probably pay a horrible price for the decisions this White House made in dealing with TERRORISTS!
What changes we have seen since Barack Insane Obama took office!
Just a short note.
Israel, Jordan, all those countries there in the middle east that are victims of ISIS,... Al-Qaeda,... Hammas,....and others assassins groups...those countries take prisoners......perhaps the best way to deal with those terrorists is not to take prisoners unless is for heavy interrogation (whatever it takes procedures to pull any information from them);...so, the best way is when find the ilsamin-muslim assassins terrorists just pulverize them right where they stand.....no contemplation, no truce,....no talking .....just blow them out the planet......no mercy.
Are we all clear on this?
Absolutely....and send the video to the IS "head shed"....after a couple hundred of their "low info conscripts" are gone....they may change their tactics.
She was as ugly as a goat, that's why ISIS wanted her back.
As "sexist" as that sounds....can't be....you a Patriot/gal. Kinda like the N word among N's....TKS
Good for them ! ISIS have shown what they really are ! Devil's helpers ! And we are all sicken by the things they do ! We don't know the half of it ! And they are here ! Yes, hide your head in the sand if you wish ! But they are here ! In America ! And the things that we see them doing in other countries? WILL HAPPEN HERE ! Some things have already happened ! There has been isis members spotted at several of their place of worship or should I say, planning places? Every state has had a influx of new members ! And they have been spotted in several states! How about your hometown? Have you heen watching ? Might want to !
Good post...great observatio
Way to go with these criminals SOB...!!!
...eye for an eye, tooth for tooth...
Affirmative,...the only and only language those Islamic-muslim fanatic juhaddist assasins understand is brute force....so let's give them a spoon or two of their own medicine....and then some more and then pulverize them all down to the last atom (if possible)....or even better to the last quark (is even smaller)
But those beasts are so resilient that they might come back ....and then we do the same to them.
ISIS is burning one hostage, we are burning at least two ISIS prisoners. You can't deal with savages in a civil way. They don't understand civil language. We need a government that deals with these savages justly and not pay attention to some pc crap or other laws that supposedly protects terrorists.
