Obama and Kerry Address Beheading of James Foley
President Obama today addressed the beheading of reporter James Wright Foley.
“The United States of America will continue to do what we must do to protect our people. “We will be vigilant and we will be relentless. When people harm Americans, anywhere, we do what’s necessary to see that justice is done.”
Here is John Kerry's statement.
And make no mistake: we will continue to confront ISIL wherever it tries to spread its despicable hatred. The world must know that the United States of America will never back down in the face of such evil. ISIL and the wickedness it represents must be destroyed, and those responsible for this heinous, vicious atrocity will be held accountable.
The Defense Department says it conducted 14 strikes today.
