Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement on the murder of American journalist James Foley by ISIS militants:
"James Foley dedicated his life to reporting from some of the darkest and most dangerous conflicts in the world. His courageous coverage shone a light on important issues and essential stories in war-torn communities across the Middle East and North Africa.
"Foley's murder by ISIS militants is a brutal crime beyond the circle of civilized behavior. The targeting of journalists is absolutely unacceptable -- and we will bring justice to his killers. As the President said, 'We will be vigilant and we will be relentless.'
"Our thoughts and prayers are with Foley's family and loved ones, and we hope it is a comfort that so many mourn with them at this difficult time."
