Mother of Hostage Killed By ISIS: 'There Was No One Whose Job It Was to Help Us'
The mother of a journalist killed by ISIS in 2014 spoke out about the incident and the foundation created in his honor.
Diane Foley's son James was kidnapped and ultimately murdered by ISIS militants in Syria.
Martha MacCallum asked about a report that Mrs. Foley thought the attempts to free her son were an "annoyance to the U.S. government."
"That was true," Foley said. "Part of the problem was [it seemed there was] no one whose job it was to help us."
She said she feels for American families still waiting to hear from their missing or kidnapped loved ones, naming the family of Xiyue Wang, a Ph.D student arrested in Iran and sentenced to 10 years for alleged spying, and the family of Bob Levinson - an FBI agent who disappeared from Kish Island, Iran in 2007.
Foley said the Trump administration is appearing to make captives and their families "more of a priority" than the Obama White House.
"I'm incredibly hopeful about that," she said.
Foley also discussed the organization set up in James' honor, the James W. Foley Legacy Foundation.
