U.S. weighs repsonse following journalist's death story image

WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - U.S. military planners are weighing the possibility of sending more American forces to Iraq, following the gruesome beheading of an American journalist.

This comes after gruesome video surfaced of an Islamic militant beheading 40-year-old James Foley.

The video was confirmed by Foley's family as genuine.

ISIS called the video, posted Tuesday, a message to America, in retaliation for U.S. airstrikes on the group's fighters in Iraq.

Wednesday, President Obama called ISIS a cancer behind thousands of cowardly acts of violence.

"They may claim out of expediency that they are at war with the United States or the west, but the fact is they terrorize their neighbors and offer them nothing but an endless slavery to their empty vision," he said.

Foley was working as a photojournalist covering the civil war in Syria when he was kidnapped in November of 2012.

The ISIS video also shows a second American journalist, Steven Sotloff, and warns he could be next.

President Obama says the U.S. will continue to confront the Islamic extremist group.
