SYRIA – “Disturbingly creepy” is one way to describe the latest video from ISIS, the Islamic State.

This one featuring kidnapped British journalist John Cantlie.

It’s a 3:21 promo for a series of programs on what Cantlie says is the truth about ISIS. “But, seeing as I’ve been abandoned by my government, and my fate now lies in the hands of the Islamic State, I have nothing to lose.”

ISIS kidnapped Cantlie in November of 2012, shortly after he arrived back in Syria after being captured and released a few months earlier.

In the video, Cantlie points out that the governments of Great Britain and the United States are the only ones not to pay ransoms.

The video comes as police in Australia say they broke up an ISIS plot with the arrest of one person and the detention of 14 others in several cities.

Australian authorities say the group planned to kidnap a random person off the street and then behead that person in public.

Published reports say officials believe 20 Australian citizens fighting with ISIS are now back in The Land Down Under.

Here at home, the Senate has given final congressional OK to President Obama's request to arm and train Syrian rebels to fight ISIS.
