Statement from National Security Council about Steven Sotloff


from FNC Jennifer Griffin:


Dear journalist colleagues,


The following comment may be used on the record, attributable to Bernadette Meehan, National Security Council Spokesperson:


“We have seen a video that purports to be the murder of U.S. citizen Steven Sotloff by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). The intelligence community is working as quickly as possible to determine its authenticity. If genuine, we are appalled by the brutal murder of an innocent American journalist and we express our deepest condolences to his family and friends. We will provide more information when it is available.”
