The extremist group, Islamic State (IS), posted footage of the killing online, which has since been verified by the White House. The Metropolitan Police has warned that ""viewing, downloading or disseminating" " the video might be an offence under terrorism laws.

You may have missed the recent T&C reminder and unaware of T&C in general but Mos are cracking down. If you post link to graphic pics you can be banned.
First link might be ok because you have to agree to move forward. The second link is best if you discard.

Why was the sound so perfect? ... no wind or background noise either. It sounds like the sound track was laid down later in a sound studio.
fo·ley (fl) n. 1. A technical process by which sounds are created or altered for use in a film, video, or other electronically produced work. 2. A person who creates or alters sounds using this process.

5. Look at the sudden insistence from the government and media that people NOT watch this movie or distribute it. That has never happened before, not with any American killed, not with any gruesome movie. Even Saddam's movie wasn't suppressed. For the government and the media to all of a sudden threaten prosecution, says to me they are scared that this fake is a little to obvious.
I call on my friends, family, and loved ones to rise up against my real killers, the US government. For what will happen to me is only a result of their complacency and criminality.
My message to my beloved parents, save me some dignity, and don’t accept some meagre compensation, for my death, from the same people who effectively hit the last nail in my coffin with their recent aerial campaign in Iraq.
I call on my brother John, who is a member of the US Air Force. Think about what you are doing, think about the lives you destroy, including those of your own family. I call on you John, think about who made the decision to bomb Iraq recently and kill those people, whoever they may have been. Think John, who did they really kill? And did they think about me, you, our family when they made that decision?
I died that day John, when your colleagues dropped that bomb on those people they signed my death certificate. I wish I had more time. I wish I could have the hope of freedom and seeing my family once again. But that ship has sailed. I guess all in all I wish I wasn’t American.
This is James Wright Foley, an American citizen of your country. As a government, you have been at the forefront of the aggression towards the Islamic State. You have plotted against us and have gone far out of your way to find reasons to interfere in our affairs. Today, your military air force is attacking us daily in Iraq, your strikes have caused casualties among Muslims. You’re no longer fighting an insurgency, we are an Islamic army, and a state that has been accepted by large number of Muslims world wide, so effectively, any aggression towards the Islamic State, is aggression towards Muslims from all walks of life who has accepted the Islamic caliphate as their leadership, so any attempt by you Obama to deny the Muslims their rights of living in safety under the Islamic caliphate will result in the bloodshed of your people.

I am yet to make up my mind over this, I suspect I will never fully 100% know.
I do have one question for those that think it is fake..... who is the dead guy at the end then? Is it not really a dead person or is it just somebody else?
