“ISIS terrorists have released a video reportedly showing Jordanian pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh being burned alive in a cage. The barbarity and brutality of ISIS jihadists knows no bounds. The savages did not stop there. They released the execution video on Twitter by the al-Furqan media arm of ISIS. This sort of shocking propaganda only serves to fuel ISIS and their murderous objectives. Just last week I held a hearing in my subcommittee on this very issue.  Social media companies can and must do more to prevent their services from being used as a tool for terrorists. My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Jordan.”
