James Foley Mom: 'Country Let Jim Down'

The mother of slain American journalist James Foley is harshly criticizing the U.S. government for its handling of her son’s hostage situation.

“I really, really feel that our country let Jim down,” Diane Foley said during a Thursday night interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper.

oley made clear that she didn’t want to blame specific people and said that there were many government officials who genuinely wanted to help. But she reserved significant criticism for the U.S. government in general, which she felt failed to help her family or James while he was held by Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant captors.
