The news of the horrific slaying of journalist James Foley has been making the rounds today, and the story is truly disturbing.
James Foley was abducted in Syria in 2012; yesterday he was beheaded by ISIS militants as a warning against further American interventions in the Middle East.
Today I spoke with his close friend and occasional collaborator, the documentary film-maker Matthew VanDyke.
This was definitely one of the most emotional interviews I've done in a long time, but Mr. VanDyke was able, despite this very difficult time in his life, to provide insight into the life of a heroic journalist who made the ultimate sacrifice.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the family of James Foley, and his friend Matthew VanDyke.
