Video released by Ukranian hackers, CyberBerkut shows that IS beheadings may actually be stage managed
Ukrainian hacktivist group going by the online handle of CyberBerkut have dropped a bombshell. The Islamic State for Iraq and Levant or IS executions are allegedly stage-managed.
It so happened that Senator John McCain had visited Ukraine on a official visit somewhere in the first week of June 2015. The hacktivists belonging to CyberBerkut somehow managed to access his laptop. This is what they had to say to Senator McCain,
“We CyberBerkut received at the disposal of the file whose value can not be overstated! Dear Senator McCain! We recommend you next time in foreign travel, and especially on the territory of Ukraine, not to take confidential documents. In one of the devices of your colleagues, we found a lot of interesting things. Something we decided to put: this video should become the property of the international community!”
According to the hackers, they broke into the laptop of one of the American politicians, Senator McCain and after found a video with staged IS execution, which they decided to show to the world community.
From the video it can be seen that the entire set including the hostage is stage managed. An actor dressed as an executioner of IS is holding a knife to behead the prisoner, and the “victim” depicts to be suffering.
It may be recalled that IS have been repeatedly publishing the videos of the executions of hostages and if this video is true, the victims may in fact be alive.
The authenticity of this video has not been independently verified.
