So ISIS wants to sell the headless body of James Foley for $1 Mill. And people still think we shouldn’t torture terrorists?
For ISIS, beheading American journalist James Foley wasn’t enough. They’re still trying to find ways profit from his brutal death. According to Buzzfeed News:
Middlemen with ties to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) have turned to a grim new method of trying to secure funds in recent days. With the group having failed to strike deals to ransom the U.S. hostages in its custody — instead beheading three of them since July — its intermediaries are now trying to negotiate the sale of the body of at least one of the men it killed.
They said ISIS wants $1 million for Foley’s body, which it would deliver across the border to Turkey, and that the group was willing to provide a DNA sample to facilitate a deal.
It’s hard to determine what’s more disturbing: that ISIS has kept Foley’s body because they want to sell it, or the fact that someone would actually purchase his body in the first place.
