U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer released the following statement regarding the murder of American journalist Steven Sotloff by ISIS:
“The killing of first James Foley, and now Steven Sotloff are absolute tragedies; they were true media professionals, committed to telling the world the truth, and paid the ultimate sacrifice for it. Freedom-loving people everywhere owe them an unpayable debt of gratitude.
“ISIS’s appalling, medieval barbarism offers the people of Iraq-and-beyond only a dark path to terror and totalitarianism, and shows we must be ever-vigilant against these pathological jihadists.”
-Senator Charles E. Schumer
