Whether the video has been captured while threatening the prisoner or with Cantlie’s consent is not known. There is also the possibility that the prisoner might be suffering from the psychological phenomenon called Stockholm Syndrome, where the hostage has positive feelings, including empathy and sympathy towards the kidnapper. The kidnapper warns the USA and its allies about not underestimating the ISIS. It also informs the users about British and American policy being flawed. His comments have not been verified.
