DOJ investigating ISIS killing of Foley
   
 


By Jesse Byrnes
 
Attorney General Eric Holder on Thursday announced that the Department of Justice has "an open criminal investigation" into the brutal killing of photojournalist James Foley by Islamic militants.
 

"Those who would perpetrate such acts need to understand something," Holder said in Washington.

"This Justice Department, this Department of Defense, this nation — we have long memories and our reach is very wide," he said. "We will not forget what happened and people will be held accountable, one way or the other."

A video posted online Tuesday showed a militant with the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) beheading Foley, a freelance journalist who went missing in Syria in November, 2012.

Speaking in Denver on Wednesday, FBI Director James Comey said his agency has been investigating Foley's kidnapping for two years.

Comey, who has been FBI director for nearly a year, said of ISIS the "savages have turned it into a homicide investigation."

"These are people that make ordinary terrorists look civilized," Comey added.

Administration officials note the investigation is broad.

"We have intelligence resources, we have diplomatic resources, we have military resources; we will spare no effort to hold accountable those people responsible for his death," State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said Wednesday.

Then what?  You know after you get those responsible.  A halal diet? 
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

Treating this like a criminal act is ludicrous – but on par with Obama’s administration. Justice is not taking out one man with a knife, but the fundamentalism that gives birth to untold thousands just as willing to take up his knife and cut the next head off.     When are these idiots in Washington going to realize that ISIS is at war with us and anyone who does not support them in the caliphate and this was a brutal act of the worse kind in that war.
A nation that turns away from prayer will ultimately find itself in desperate need of it. :Jonathan Cahn

I think Holder wants to find out of the terrorists gave Foley his Maranda Rights.  If not, he will demand Foley be released. :thud:
