ISIS burns captive Jordanian pilot alive

The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has burned alive a Jordanian pilot captured by the militant group in December.

ISIS released a video showing the execution on Tuesday. The video shows Moaz al-Kasasbeh locked in a cage and being lit on fire.

“Today, we join the people of Jordan in grieving the loss of one of their own, First Lieutenant Moaz al-Kasasbeh, cruelly and brutally killed by ISIL terrorists,” President Obama said in a statement, using the administration’s preferred acronym for the terror group.

“Lieutenant al-Kasasbeh’s dedication, courage, and service to his country and family represent universal human values that stand in opposition to the cowardice and depravity of ISIL, which has been so broadly rejected around the globe,” he said.

Tell me again how waterboarding is torture.
