Looking back on the life and work of journalist James Foley

James Foley was kidnapped in November 2012 while reporting on the conflict in Syria.

Where is the military gear in Ferguson coming from?

The images coming out of Ferguson often look similar to a war zone. The police presence aimed at keeping the peace there often looks more reminiscent of a full-fledged military operation.
