Eric Holder Announces Criminal Investigation Into The Brutal Execution Of American Journalist James Foley: What Exactly Are They Investigating?

Attorney General Eric H. Holder announced on Thursday that the U.S. Justice Department is pursuing a criminal investigation into the brutal beheading death of American photojournalist James Foley. While I appreciate that some action is being taken, what exactly are they investigating?

James Foley, who was kidnapped in Syria nearly two years ago, was beheaded by the terrorist army known as the Islamic State – ISIS. The brutal execution was shown in a video released Tuesday and seen globally.

Holder relayed the following in a press conference:

“We will not forget what happened and people will be held accountable, one way or the other,” he said.

 “Those who would perpetrate such acts need to understand something. “This Justice Department, this Department of Defense, this nation — we have long memories and our reach is very wide,” Mr. Holder said at a press conference in Washington.

The video of James Foley’s execution was ISIS’ message to the United States that they would kill more Americans unless Obama stopped U.S. airstrikes on the militants. The terror group has seized control of a huge swath of territory in Iraq and Syria, until the U.S. airstrikes that began Aug. 8 stopped its advances across Iraq.

Let’s not forget that ISIS still has Steven Joel Sotloff, and threatened to execute him next. Apparently the Obama administration thinks an investigation will help Sotloff.
