The F-B-I believes it knows who the masked man is in the recent Islamic State group beheading videos.
Bureau Director James Comey says he’ll not reveal the man’s name or nationality.
The person on the video has a British accent and has been dubbed Jihadi Johnny.
Comey won’t say if the U-S believes the man actually carried out the killings himself.
Meanwhile, plots against the U-S and Europe by the al-Qaida cell in Syria, known as the Khorasan Group, may still be in the works.
The F-B-I director says there’s no indication yet that a series of airstrikes against the terrorists this week disrupted its plans.
American intelligence officials say the group’s been trying to perfect a non-metallic bomb that can get past airport security and blow up a airplane in flight.
