Can we call this a war yet? On Wednesday President Obama responded to the killing of James Foley by ISIS by calling ISIS a cancer that needed to be extracted. ISIS killed Foley in response to the killing of ISIS fighters from US airstrikes in Iraq after the group claimed it would kill Americans if the US military attacked them.
It was later revealed that the US had performed a rescue mission to save Foley and other hostages in Syria. The mission reportedly failed due to the hostages not being where US intelligence thought they were.
