Here are three James Foley stories on the Fox Nation front page right now. First, the oldest one:
Then, of course, we learned that the president sent Special Forces to try to rescue Foley, but the would-be rescuers learned, after a firefight, that Foley wasn't at the targeted location. So we get this at Fox Nation -- even though the original thread is still up:
And then, after that, we get Charles Krauthammer complaining not only that Obama shouldn't have made information about the raid public, he shouldn't be sending missions to rescue kidnapped journalists and fight their captors at all:
A "Special Report" panel discussed this news released by the Obama administration on the attempted rescue mission. Charles Krauthammer called the statement "a political reaction to a horrific event."Well, it was big of Krauthammer to offer praise for the continued airstrikes -- but note that we're approaching the point at which Fox News bloviators seem prepared to criticize the president even if he launches a successful rescue mission, killing a few captors along the way. Krauthammer seems ready to proclaim that any successful rescue in the future is actually a strategic failure and a foreign policy blunder.
Krauthammer said that it could also be interpreted as a message to ISIS that we failed.
According to Krauthammer, the response is not a rescue mission, it's the continuation of airstrikes. He called it encouraging that the U.S. doubled airstrikes today.
Krauthammer also blasted Obama's statements on James Foley's murder as "weak, ambiguous and vague."
Well, what do I expect? These people attacked Obama for the successful bin Laden raid. Obama took too much credit himself! Obama leaked secret information! Obama isn't really in the Situation Room photo! With these clowns, he can never win.
