Shaheen Statement on the One Year Anniversary of the Murder of James Foley

Washington, DC—Senator Shaheen gave the following statement on the one year anniversary of the murder of New Hampshire native James Foley by ISIS terrorists:

“On the anniversary of James Foley’s death, we remember a courageous and inspiring journalist who dedicated his life to telling stories from the Middle East that needed to be told. The Foley family is in my thoughts, and I wish them strength and peace as they remember James. It can’t be said enough: James Foley’s killers are cowards who must be brought to justice. As ISIS continues their barbaric killings, these despicable acts strengthen our country’s resolve to defeat them and their hateful ideology.”
