Islamic State Attempting To Sell Beheaded American Journalist James Foley’s Body/Remains For $1M
Various news outlets this afternoon that the Islamic State told BuzzFeed News, that “middlemen have been trying to strike a sale, with the asking price for James Foley’s body/remains for $1M. Islamic State “representatives,” claim they will transport Foley’s body to Turkey — and, they will even provide a DNA sample to prove the remains are genuine.
There was no indication whether or not the head would be included.
BuzzFeed news said “three sources with contact with the Islamic State members confirmed that Foley’s body was being put up for sale. One is reportedly a former Syrian rebel fighter with ties to Islamic State leaders,” BuzzFeed News said.
I am reminded of a question I once heard an interviewer ask of a lawyer defending South Africa’s apartheid system. The question was — “First of all, can you stoop any lower; and second, if you can — can you make more money doing it.” V/R, RCP
