Why I Don't Believe James Foley was Beheaded in ISIS Video

Motive: Factions of the US government and the Foreign Relations Council wanted a reason to begin airstrikes in Syria because of the money to be made in Arms sales, plundered Syrian resources and geo-strategical reasons.  I'm not saying ISIS doesn't exists but they weren't posing enough of a direct threat to the US for the US public to support an expensive military operation with the inevitable deaths of innocent Syrian civilians. Public support could only be afforded by an outrage of a brutal murder of a US citizen and a high profile, emotional media campaign to go with it.

I have watched the Foley beheading video on youtube. Believe me, I would not have if I doubted it was fake. I am a squeamish and emotional person. If you saw any of the photos coming from Syria and Gaza the last year, they had me sobbing and unable to sleep properly at night.
Sure enough, the video produced no emotional reaction in me whatsoever. You would have thought that a man, even if resigned to the fact of his own death, would show some physical tension and distress moments before a brutal decapitation of this nature; some resistance, a few beads of sweat on his forehead perhaps. You would have thought, after the knife had cut into his throat he would have released some cry even if involuntarily. Other youtubers said in comments they had seen videos of real beheadings uploaded from the Middle East (Wtf? Grim, I know I could never)  and a hideous, gutteral sound is produced by the victim as the knife slices through the flesh and hits the trachea, esophagus and vocal fold within.
The knife goes across his neck six times before the video fades out. There was not a drop of blood, no cry, no heaving or twisting of the body. The victim seemed completely calm and unphased.
Even the Telegraph reported that the video was probably faked and that Foley was probably shot off camera and the video made for propaganda purposes.

I have to ask why the most brutal and bloody thirsty regime of modern times would decide to shoot Foley instead and release such a pathetically unconvincing video? So as not to offend a Western audience? Please.

Now here is the next thing. The USA amended the Schmit- Mundt Act of 1932 to make it legal to produce completely false news for domestic and foreign audiences. Also a recent report in The Examiner describes how Fox News mogul Rupert Murdoch owns an Oil company poised to drill in Syria.

And here is the next thing. Does this woman look like someone who has just lost her sibling or someone who has just been paid a lot of money for her role in this? Perhaps enough to last the rest of her life?

So where is James Foley if he is not dead you may ask. I don't know. Maybe he has been giving a new identity and is living in Israel or Saudi Arabia or an army base until people forget what he looks like. Maybe he didn't exist in the first place. Far fetched as it may seem, I find it easier to believe than  the video of his execution or his sibling's supposed grief.  Considering the amount of resources and money in arms sales at stake for the West's elite and the evidence above, I think it the more likely of scenarios than a mass-murdering ISIS executioner getting a bit squeamish about getting blood on his nice new boots.   

Paris November 13th Footage

1. Raw phone footage from outside the Bataclan. 2.58 The fear, distress and injury seems very genuine in this footage and has me doubting the staged drill theory. I found it quite harrowing. Yet why does the photographer stay so close to film what's going on? Who is the shooter that comes out of the building. ISIS or French? There appears to be someone on other side of the door. Pay attention to the railings.

2. Shoot out outside Bataclan 1.00
The railings on the right here, are they permanent pavement fixtures or the same as the ones outside the Bataclan, which you assume are for queue control but could they have been to close the street off for a foreseen drill/exercise? Why does the French special forces man have no helmet? I thought the shooters stayed inside the venue. Why are they shooting down the street?

3.Daniel Psenny footage Bataclan 2.46
The pregnant woman hanging out the window. takes one hand away and leans back to look below her. Perhaps she was worried the gunmen were below her but even if her feet were supported by bars,  it seems an unusual action for someone who is clinging on for dear life. At the moment she is lifted back into the building, Daniel Psenny moves his camera off her. As a journalist, you would think this is a moment he'd want to capture, why does he point the camera back at the bodies on the ground?

4.Outside Le Bonne Biere (near Casa Nostra)

This is meant to be seconds after the attack yet their are already men with nightsticks on the scene and no sirens or flashing emergency vehicles. The man trying to stop the photographer from filming is in plain clothes- jeans and a jacket.

5. General report about ISIS video threats and with footage from Hebdo attacks too but a few seconds looks very much like Canal St Martin (green bit in the middle/bare trees in November ) near Casa Nostra where November 13th shootings took place. At 0.38 secs a young woman appears laughing and smiling as loading a friend onto ambulance.  But then why is it daylight when the Nov 13th Attack took place between 9pm and 10pm?  It does not get light until 7 or 8 am so it cannot have taken all night? Unless this footage is from the drill earlier in the day?

6. CCTV footage from Casa Nostra

Youtubers Peekay and HowISeeit have claimed that the woman who runs through the door and dives behind the counter is an 'Operative' and throws a firecracker through the window before entering. Peekay even says their is no glass in the window. However, it looks more like to me that the window is not shattered before the shot and then it is. So are you telling me that a firecracker can make a bullet-like hole in the window? I've no experience with guns - do bullets hitting a surface can sure make a puff of smoke, or dust/plaster also? Is it possible the flick of the woman's wrist is her trying to open the door but withdrawing her hand as another bullet hits the window and a splinter of glass hits her wrist. She grabs the pole to go downstairs to the cellar but is it possible the injury is not that painful after the initial impact and physical boundaries can be stretched and pain forgotten when adrenaline is pumping through the body? Saying this the gun jam incident does look odd. It is possible the shattered glass photoshopped? Also when the terrorist runs off he does not run in the direction of the terrorist's car to the left of him, he seems to disappear into thin air! Is it possible it has been digitally manipulated?
