US Government Let My Son Down – Mother Of Slayed Journalist

The mother of murdered journalist James Foley has said he was let down by the US government and that she was “embarrassed and appalled” at the way the family were treated.

According to the Telegraph, Diane Foley told CNN that they were treated as an “annoyance” and at once stage even threatened with arrest if they attempted to raise a ransom to try to secure his release.
The 40-year-old journalist was beheaded, apparently by an Isil fanatic with a British accent, and a video of his murder was released by the group last month.

In the months leading up to his death, the Foley family were contacted by Isil with large ransom demands, which they were unable to meet.
