Islamic State terrorists are trying to sell the headless body of James Foley to his parents for $1 million. As the left wrings its hands over the U.S.’ supposed torture record, it’s a reminder of the enemy we are up against.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s release of a classified report this week on the Central Intelligence Agency’s enhanced interrogation methods — waterboarding, sleep deprivation, rough handling — has set off a storm of guilt-mongering about America’s supposedly terrible record of “torture,” with everyone from the Ivy League academics to the leftist president of Uruguay claiming the U.S. is no better than Nazis (which is pretty rich, coming from Uruguay).
But as we go to press, they haven’t had a word about the barbarism of the Islamic State, which not only brutally beheaded U.S. hostage James Foley after a prolonged period of captivity, but is now rubbing salt in the wounds of his grieving family by offering to sell back his body for $1 million.
Words cannot express the anguish Foley’s parents must feel — from having to hear it all from these filthy killers still walking free after their heinous crime and now seeking a ransom of sorts for the “privilege” of a dignified burial.
So far, we’ve heard no condemnation from the U.N.
Or from the president of Uruguay, for that matter.
One of the middlemen involved in the grotesque proposal told BuzzFeed that the Islamic State had only the family’s “need for closure” in mind and called its quest for a cash reward “a humanity case,” while another middleman more frankly admitted “this is business.”
No matter what it is, it’s psychological torture on a family following physical torture of their son. More important, it tells Americans something about the horrible enemy we’re still fighting.
”…..[T]he leftist president of Uruguay claiming the U.S. is no better than Nazis….” is the person Obama chose to give 6 of GITMOs worst to.
They both knew that sending GITMO detainees to Uruguay meant they would be immediately free to return to their terrorist lives wherever they want.
And that is what has already happened!
Less than one week after Obama gave these 6 to Uruguay they are free to leave.
Who knows where they are now?
Think ”panties on the heads,” of their enemies will be the worst of it?
Look at poor Foley’s parents.
The Marquis de Sade would be proud to call these Islamists ”sons.”
