Rest in Peace, James Foley

Journalist James Foley - peoplewhowrite

Journalist James Foley was reportedly beheaded by members of the militant group Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

Foley, who had been captured once before by soldiers in Libya and later released, said of the ordeal, “I believe that front line journalism is important. Without these photos and videos and firsthand experience, we can’t really tell the world how bad it might be.”
