The murder of James Wright Foley by an ISIS operator electrified the internet. If you have not seen the video, you can find it here, at LiveLeak. This is a horrific image. I only recommend watching it for one reason–to appreciate the evil of what we are fighting.
I listen in amazement to the media justifying why they won’t show the image. Well, you can use the same excuse to not show images of the Nazi Holocaust. It is important, in my mind, that people be exposed to the harsh, ugly reality. Averting our eyes and covering our ears is the road to ignorance.
This evil must be fought with eyes wide open. Shame on Obama for heading to the golf course rather than exhibiting a smidgen of leadership in the battle against ISIS>
