Obama is expected to address a video released Tuesday that appears to show a militant of the group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria executing American journalist James Foley, who was kidnapped in Syria in November 2012. National Security Council Spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said Wednesday morning the U.S. intelligence community believes the video to be authentic.
