Kenneth Bigley, kidnapped on 16 September 2004, along with two US workers can be seen here appealing to UK Prime Minister Tony Blair and the American led coalition for his life. As Islamic jihadists call for his head in a truly literal fashion, opinions can be heard on many Islamic message boards that support such a call.

In this video first aired by the Al-Jazeera television network, Bigley called UK prime minister Tony Blair a "liar" and also stated that his captors did not want to kill him. Possibly suffering from "Stockholm syndrome", Bigley stated that he disagreed with US and British foreign policy

The video concludes with text that can be read to state the following. "Does a British civilian worth anything to Blair? Will he try to save this hostage, or will he not care? Do Leaders really care about their people?"
