ISIS Crisis

ISIS releases second video of British hostage

ISIS has released a second video of kidnapped British journalist John Cantlie in which the prisoner warns that "Western governments are hastily marching toward all-out war in Iraq and Syria without paying any heed to the lessons of the recent past."

"Not since Vietnam have we witnessed such a potential mess in the making," he adds.

Last week, ISIS released a video in which Cantile vowed he would expose "the truth" about the conflict over a series of future videos. Yet he added that he was being forced to make that video because ISIS had a "gun at his head."

The new, nearly six-minute-long video was released as the U.S. began its first bombing campaign against ISIS inside Syria.
