"Jihadi John" identified--a middle class man from London

The knife-wielding executioner with the English accent in the Islamic State videos, nicknamed "Jihadi John," has been identified--he's Kuwaiti-born Mohammed Emwazi, who grew up in London. And he's not an impoverished Muslim described as the typical ISIS member described by clueless State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf who only needs a job to be pacified.

From CNN:
Emwazi was born in Kuwait in 1988 and moved to the United Kingdom when he was 6 years old, CAGE said on its website.

He studied at the University of Westminster in London and graduated in 2009 with a degree in computer programming, the group said.

Emwazi, according to CAGE, "hoped that with this degree, he could build a successful career in Arab countries, as he was fluent in Arabic, English and had a British accent."
