World Affairs Statement on the Murder of Journalist Steven Sotloff by ISIS

We at World Affairs are deeply saddened by the death of Steven Sotloff. He was an honest, courageous, and dedicated journalist and an utterly decent American. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and his loved ones.

Steven Sotloff, a freelance foreign correspondent for World Affairs, was a citizen of the United States. It is the obligation of the commander in chief to act within his authority and power to protect American lives on our shores and beyond, and to hunt down and bring to justice those who murder American citizens. 

We call upon President Obama to rally leaders of the civilized nations of the world to condemn and to end the Islamic State’s barbaric reign of terror across Iraq and Syria for the sake of those not yet murdered.
