Obama Admin Threatened to Prosecute Foleys if They Paid Son's Ransom


The mother and brother of James Foley — one of the U.S. journalists beheaded by the Islamic State — claim Obama administration officials threatened to charge them with criminal counts if they tried to pay the ransom demanded by the terrorists.

"We were told that several times and we took it as a threat and it was appalling," Foley's mother Diane toldABC News.
