James Foley was one of a new breed of activists calling themselves journalists. He didn’t travel to report on a story, but to promote an agenda. And the agenda was obvious from his Twitter feed.

Any human life lost is tragic, but a moral individual would have much more empathy for the Syrian Christians who suffered at the hands of Foley’s favorite Jihadists than one of their pet propagandists.

Days later, he disappeared, with the last visual of his existence being a video of him in the hands if jihadists. What happened to Tice? The same thing that happened to Foley…

…Is Scarborough right? Was ISIS maybe thinking of hijacking a plane and steering it into a skyscraper until they noticed President Pitching Wedge teeing off on Martha’s Vineyard, at which point they concluded that they don’t dare? …

…Screwing around on the golf course doesn’t signal the public that he’s serious about this. It signals the opposite. In which case, why get behind him for another risky campaign in Iraq?…
