James Foley went missing in Syria in 2012. On Tuesday ISIS uploaded a video of Foley's beheading to YouTube. The video has since been removed as the White House attempts to verify Foley's identity.
The hosts talks about his death, the dangers of reporting in a war zone, and how videos like this can work as propaganda for the militant group.
