    U.S. Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday issued a sharp warning to the Islamic State group, saying after the United States is done grieving the death of two American journalists, their killers will have to answer for their actions. "They should know we will follow them to the gates of hell until they are brought to justice," he forcefully told an audience at an event on the New Hampshire-Maine border, according to CNN. "Because hell is where they will reside. Hell is where they will reside." Biden opened his remarks in memory of Steven Sotloff, the journalist who was beheaded...

    RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) - The CEO of a Raleigh marketing firm is apologizing for an ad posted on Twitter that depicted an ISIS execution - and a burger. Valor Media created the campaign for a Washington, D.C., chain called Z-Burger. Over the weekend, a tweet was sent out that showed a photo of American journalist James Foley moments before he was executed by ISIS in 2014 - along with the image of a hamburger. Z-Burger had the tweet removed within an hour. Michael Valor, whose business created the tweet, says he takes full responsibility and posted a video on Twitter...

    WASHINGTON (CN) – The family of James Foley — a journalist who was tortured and beheaded by the Islamic State group in 2014 — brought a $200 million complaint Tuesday to hold the Syrian government liable. Represented by Steven Perles, Foley’s mother, father and three siblings contend that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government “facilitated” the rise of IS from its precursor groups, including the al-Nusra Front and the Islamic State of Iraq. “The Assad regime provided Daesh with material support at crucial times during its metastasis from an isolated group of terrorists into a quasi-terrorist ‘state’ that subsequently kidnapped, tortured,...

    Fox News' Chief Intelligence Correspondent Fox News, Catherine Herridge, reported earlier in the week that Obama administration officials were in possession of "very specific intelligence" pertaining to the precise location where ISIS terrorists were holding a group of Western hostages, including since-murdered Americans James Foley, Steven Sotloff and Kayla Mueller. Herridge's sources said the eventual rescue mission was launched seven weeks after the hostages' location was identified, significantly longer than the 30-day delay reported last summer by Tony Harnden. The intelligence gathered had reportedly nailed down the exact building where the kidnapped parties were being held: By the spring of 2014, the...

    Coach is Right ^ | November 8, 2014 | Jim Emerson, staff writer
    The Obama Administration had reliable Intelligence on the location of an American journalist and video reporter, James Foley, and other hostages being held in Syria. (1) Fox News’ Catherine Herridge broke the story that the White House knew about the hostages’ location as early as May. The cover story for the delay was to have the intelligence community to develop further, most likely a case of “cold feet” or waiting on Valarie Jarret’s approval. The Obama Regime was afraid that the mission would be an abysmal failure, similar to Jimmy Carter’s efforts to rescue American’s being held in Iran. That,...

    In an exclusive interview with Fox News' Megyn Kelly last night on the Kelly File the brother of beheaded American journalist James "Jim" Foley, Michael Foley, expressed disappointment over how the Obama administration is handling the threat of terror army ISIS and in the administration's handling of his brother's capture leading up to his death. James Foley was beheaded three weeks ago by an ISIS terrorist and a YouTube video of the gruesome murder was posted online. President Obama was on vacation at the time and eight minutes after making a statement about the murder, returned to the golf course,...

    Islamic State militants are reportedly demanding $6.6 million and the release of a U.S. prisoner before they will free a third American hostage held by the group, an unidentified aid worker. A source confirmed to Fox News that the aid worker is a 26-year-old woman from the West Coast. They did not provide further details, but ABC News reported that the woman, whose relatives have requested she not be identified, is the third of at least four Americans known to be held by the extremist Muslim organization. American journalist James Foley was executed by the group in a video that...

    American journalist and freelance photographer James Foley campaigned for Barack Obama. But when he was captured and held by ISIS, Obama was not there for him. The Sunday Times reported in August that President Obama delayed a rescue mission for James Foley and the other prisoners for 30 days. Obama spent that time “fretting over his image”, playing golf and worrying his administration would be “Carterized” if the mission failed. James Foley campaigned for the wrong candidate. The New York Times reported: As the number of people in the 20-square-meter cell in Raqqa grew smaller, it was hard to stay...

    After the Obama administration bargained for Bowe Bergdahl’s life, the family of ISIS hostage James Foley begged the White House for the same treatment—only to be denied. The parents of James Foley, the journalist ISIS beheaded in August, learned about the U.S. government’s attempt to rescue him about an hour before the rest of us did. The grieving parents got word from President Obama himself. “I told Obama that Jim worked hard to get him elected,” John Foley, James’s father, told The Daily Beast. “He believed till the end his country would come and get them.” The president, according to...

    FBI Director James Comey said the agency has identified the ISIS executioner who beheaded American journalists James Foley, Steven Sotloff, and British aid worker John Haines. Comey would not identify the executioner’s nationality or identity to the media, though you’ll remember he spoke with a British accent in the videos. The man, dubbed ‘Jihadi John,’ is one of four British jihadis known as the ‘Beatles’ that are currently holding hostages in Syria.  The Daily Mail has more details: British Foreign Secretary, Philip Hammond revealed intelligence agencies were closing the net on Jihadi John. Hammond, who just ten days ago admitted...

    Townhall.com ^ | September 22, 2014 | Jeff Jacoby
    ISLAMIC STATE has made the beheading of victims a key element in its campaign of terror and conquest. Most conspicuous in recent weeks have been the murders of Westerners James Foley, Steven Sotloff, and David Haines, whose severed heads and decapitated bodies have been shown in threatening videos produced by the jihadists. In the years since 9/11, other Islamist terrorist groups have circulated equally ghastly beheading videos. Among the earlier victims were journalist Daniel Pearl, businessman Nicholas Berg, and construction contractors Jack Hensley and Eugene Armstrong — all Americans beheaded by Al Qaeda.Last week, meanwhile, Australian police arrested 15 suspects...

    As part of his “strategy” to eliminate ISIS, also known as ISIL, President Obama wants to “equip Syrian opposition fighters,” and while not mentioning the Free Syrian Army, or FSA, by name, that group, the group in which American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff were embedded before they were captured by ISIS and beheaded, likely would be a recipient. It was the same FSA that ultimately turned Foley and Sotloff over to ISIS.

    The families of two journalists beheaded by Islamic State jihadists were both warned by US government officials they could face prosecution if they raised a ransom for their release. The recent executions of James Foley and Steven Sotloff by Islamic State (IS) extremists triggered worldwide revulsion and Washington has since declared it is at war with the radicals. The United States has a policy of never paying ransoms, contending that doing so would endanger Americans all over the world. Late Friday, a spokesman for Sotloff's family said the murdered journalist's parents were told by a White House counterterrorism official last...

    The U.S. government Friday defended its handling of James Foley's case after the slain journalist's mother told CNN that officials suggested the family could be charged if they tried to raise money to free him. Saying everything possible had been done to bring the journalist home, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf told reporters officials worked very closely with Foley's family and with his employer, GlobalPost CEO Philip Balboni. "Any advice that this department or other departments give to the families about what they should do in these situations is based solely on what is best for returning their loved one...

    The mother of James Foley -- an American journalist beheaded by ISIS militants -- said she is "embarrassed and appalled" by how the U.S. government dealt with her son's case, telling CNN that officials even suggested family members could be charged if they raised ransom to free him. "I think our efforts to get Jim freed were an annoyance" to the U.S. government, Diane Foley told CNN's Anderson Cooper, during part of an interview that will air on CNN at 8 p.m. ET. "It didn't seem to be in (U.S.) strategic interest, if you will." Officials told Foley family members...

    An abundance of polls over the last week taking the temperature of the American public on the threat posed by the Islamic State have begun to paint a clear picture of how the United States was reshaped by a summer dominated by tales of ISISÂ’s horrors. Americans, it turns out, were profoundly affected by events overseas, disquieted by the apparent new threat to national security posed by this uniquely terrorizing force, and appalled at the slaughter of American hostages.Two polls released this week showed that nine out of every 10 Americans believe ISIS represents a threat to national security....

    "Do you have a strategy now, Mr. President?" asked the cover of the Daily News next to a photo of the second American journalist to be beheaded by the terrorist group ISIS. The impulse to "do something" to counter such evil is strong. But why do we assume that government doing something is always an improvement over government doing nothing? In domestic policy, encouraging government to act leads to nonsense like the "stimulus spending" that created boondoggles such as Cash for Clunkers. Our foreign policy record isn't much better, despite big successes such as stopping Hitler. Consider the unintended consequences...

    The president has in recent days taken fire from members of his own party for taking a low-key approach to tackling the problem presented by the Islamic State, particularly as the images of two American journalists kidnapped and beheaded in Syria have flashed across television screens. Even Minnesota senator Al Franken, who since his election in 2008 has gone to great lengths to avoid the media, made headlines when he said he was “troubled” by some of Obama’s statements. Though the president has become a political liability for Democrats this election season, he hasn’t lost all of his allies in...
