CBS’s Clarissa Ward changed her profile picture, Fox News’s Conor Powell remembers him as “a great guy,” while Al Jazeera journalist Mohamed Fadel Fahmy, himself imprisoned in Egypt, says James Foley‘s murder “will spark a revolution against terrorists.” These are just some of the ways, those who knew and worked alongside the intrepid journalist are remembering their colleague killed by ISIS militants.
Powell met Foley when he was an embed in Afghanistan. He tells TVNewser: “Jim was well liked by everyone, very easy going and engaging. Like many freelancers he was fearless, but he never appeared reckless. He wasn’t covering wars and conflicts for the rush, it was the story and the people that drove him.”
Rest In Peace James Wright Foley Your struggle/demise will not be in vain. Your slaying will spark a revolution against terrorists. #Peace

My new profile photo is how I will chose to remember James- as a brave and tireless journalist with a passion for the Syrian cause
