President Obama Responds to Isis

Updated: Thursday, August 21 2014, 03:56 PM CDT

President Obama sends a stern message to extremists in Iraq.

The President responding to video released by the Islamic state of a terrorist beheading American journalist James Foley.

The graphic video, chilling people around the world and prompting President Obama to fire back.

The president says the US will continue to do everything it can to put an end to the violence caused by Isis extremists.

He says there's no place for these terrorists in the 21st century.

"People like this ultimately fail. They fail because the future is formed by those who build and not destroy. The world is shaped by people like Jim Foley. The overwhelming majority of humanity were appalled by those who killed him. The United States of America will continue to do what we must to do protect our people. We will be vigilant. And we will be relentless. When people harm Americans anywhere, we do what's necessary to see that justice is done."

Foley was a freeland journalist writing for The Global Post as well as other websites.
