Obama Bails Out on James Foley Funeral Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Tue, Aug 26, 2014, 09:29 PM

President Barry Obama refused to send any White House officials to the funeral of reporter James Foley, who was beheaded by Islamist militants, ISIS (Islamic State of Syria and Levant).

According to the Daily Caller, "No White House representatives were present at the memorial mass held for James Foley on Sunday, although the president did send three to Michael Brown’s funeral, CNS News reports."

During the somber funeral memorial for Foley on Sunday, Obama was golfing at Martha's Vineyard instead.

As reported by the Daily Caller, "Foley, 40, was beheaded in a video released by the radical Islamist group ISIS last week. He had been in captivity since November 2012, when he was captured in Syria while reporting for international news service GlobalPost."

The funeral was held at a Roman Catholic Church, which may explain Obama's noticeable absence.
