During a visit to Goodwin College in Connecticut on Wednesday, Vice President Joe Biden indicated that the beheading of American journalist James Foley would not change the United States approach to ISIS.
Biden was asked by an AP reporter about the event. According to the White House pool report, Biden denied that it would change US policy but pointed out that it shined a spotlight on the horrors they were committing.
Biden also criticized ISIS for trying to “wipe out” Iraqi citizens including Muslims.
He noted that in some places, agents of ISIS were actually auctioning off young girls as slaves.
