James Foley’s Mother To CNN: “As An American I’m Embarassed And Appalled” By Obama’s Inaction On ISIS

Diane Foley, the mother of murdered journalist James Foley, told CNN she’s “embarrassed and appalled” by the Obama administration’s inaction on ISIS and the failed rescue attempt to save her son. She also said the family was treated as an “annoyance” and threatened with prosecution if they attempted to pay ransom.

On the 13th anniversary of 9/11 and the day after President Obama addressed the nation and finally offered a strategy to defeat ISIS, Diane Foley told CNN that ‘as an American’, she was ’embarrassed and appalled’ at the efforts to rescue her son from captivity.

Articulate and thoughtful throughout her interview, Mrs. Foley made the startling claim that US officials threatened her family with prosecution if they tried to raise a ransom for Foley, 40, and said ‘Jim was sacrificed because of a lack of communication and prioritization.’

In a damning indictment of the effort at home and abroad to rescue Foley, who was kidnapped in northern Syria while working for GlobalPost, Mrs. Foley said that the FBI were asking her family for information on her eldest son.

‘We tended to know everything before the FBI or anyone else. …. Everyone was kind and supportive, but the FBI used us for information,’ she said.

If these claims are true, they reveal a shocking level of incompetence within our government. James Foley’s murder at the hands of ISIS isn’t just a tragedy, it’s a national scandal.
