Washington—Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today released the following statement on the murder of James Foley by ISIL:

“The gruesome murder of James Foley and the continued acts of terror by ISIL must be met with very serious consequences by the international community. The video leaves absolutely no doubt that ISIL is committed to attacking Americans and our allies.

“We must continue to provide our support to the new Iraqi government once it is formed and help solidify gains by Iraqi and Kurdish forces. Countering ISIL will demand coordinated and sustained action by Iraq, the United States and the international community. Only then can we reverse ISIL’s rise and eliminate this very dangerous terrorist threat.”
