The Hunt Is On To Identify “Jihadi John”

The hunt is on to identify the new “Jihadi John,” the masked, British-accented Islamic State militant who on a newly released video calls British Prime Minister David Cameron an “imbecile” and then helps slaughter five men suspected by the group of spying for Britain.

Initial speculation in the British press was that the man could be Siddhartha Dhar, better known as Abu Rumaysah, a British father of at least five children who fled to Syria with his entire family in late 2014.
