Pentagon: ISIS Burning Pilot Alive ‘Not the Act of a Winner’

Tuesday at a Pentagon press conference to address the ISIS video of a captured Jordanian pilot being burned alive, spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said, “Now I don’t need to remind you that this pilot was himself a Muslim. So it does bring into stark relief the seriousness of the threat. But, you know, these brutal murders, I can’t, there’s no way I could possibly figure out how to justify it in your brain, because it’s so twisted. But it certainly isn’t, these aren’t the acts of a winner. They’re not winning.”
