Obama Vows To Bring To Justice the Terrorists Responsible for Kayla Mueller’s Death

Kayla Mueller

On Friday, ISIL claimed that American Kayla Mueller, who had been captured in northern Syria in 2013, was dead. On Tuesday, her family said they received confirmation that she is dead. In a statement, they said, “We are heartbroken to share that we’ve received confirmation that Kayla Jean Mueller, has lost her life.”

President Obama conveyed the First Family’s “deepest condolences” to Kayla’s family in a statement from the White House, “At this time of unimaginable suffering, the country shares in their grief.” The President vowed to find and bring to justice to the terrorists responsible for her death, “No matter how long it takes, the United States will find and bring to justice the terrorists who are responsible for Kayla’s captivity and death.”

The President honored Kayla’s memory by highlighting that she spent her life helping others, “In Prescott, Arizona, she volunteered at a women’s shelter and worked at an HIV/AIDS clinic. She worked with humanitarian organizations in India, Israel, and the Palestinian territories, compelled by her desire to serve others. Eventually, her path took her to Turkey, where she helped provide comfort and support to Syrian refugees forced to flee their homes during the war. Kayla’s compassion and dedication to assisting those in need shows us that even amongst unconscionable evil, the essential decency of humanity can live on.”

“Kayla represents what is best about America, and expressed her deep pride in the freedoms that we Americans enjoy, and that so many others strive for around the world,” President Obama said in a statement. Quoting her, he continued, “She said: ‘Here we are. Free to speak out without fear of being killed, blessed to be protected by the same law we are subjected to, free to see our families as we please, free to cross borders and free to disagree. We have many people to thank for these freedoms and I see it as an injustice not to use them to their fullest.'”

Saying Kayla ” epitomized all that is good in our world,” the President vowed to find and bring justice to those responsible for her death, “No matter how long it takes, the United States will find and bring to justice the terrorists who are responsible for Kayla’s captivity and death.”

Obama condemned ISIL as “a hateful and abhorrent terrorist group whose actions stand in stark contrast to the spirit of people like Kayla. On this day, we take comfort in the fact that the future belongs not to those who destroy, but rather to the irrepressible force of human goodness that Kayla Mueller shall forever represent.”

  1. This women has more courage and honor than the bat guano right who from the safety of their homes will somehow find a way to say this is the Presidents fault

  2. You know, I’ve come to the conclusion that if you’re Republican…you really have a twisted outlook on life. You want the government to do nothing for the general public and keep trying to make all of the money in the world. For what? There’s never been a headline for spotting a Brink’s truck in a graveyard. Ever. Just check Wikileaks and the Bible.

  3. Since when is this a “Republican” or a “Democrat” problem? At issue is what are we doing or going to do about these sadistic nut jobs that are attacking, killing, and terrorizing everyone in their path. The Jordanian president struck back! Why is it so hard to send a message of “Don’t mess with the USA”??? When everything is politicized then it is clear that we don’t care about values and humanity. We are just adding to the propaganda of the politicians.

  4. I see you have been living in dumbfukistan to even make that damn statement

    The U.S. Air Campaign Against ISIS Is Much Bigger Than You Think
    To date, there have been approximately 240 coalition air strikes against ISIS targets in Iraq and Syria since air operations began nearly a month ago. On the first night of operations against ISIS in Syria, the U.S. put most of its best assets into the fight, employing more than 40 Tomahawk cruise missiles along with F-22 Raptors, F-15 Strike Eagles, F-16s, B-1 bombers, EA-18G Growler electronic warfare planes and drones. U.S. Navy F/A-18E/Fs and coalition partners including the U.K., France, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, the UAE and Qatar have participated in air operations too.

  5. Well Steve, how exactly do we send that message? All I hear are people saying we need to send them a message, we need to bomb them, etc., and what is forgotten is that this kind of response is what got us ISIS in the first place.

    We can’t bomb our way around the world.

  6. Even Fox “News” Channel reported that 80% of the airstrikes are NOT by Jordan or any other nation, but by the United States.

    The only people who are making this a “Republican” or “Democratic” issue are the perpetually deluded on the (always wrong) Right. And you darn well know it, Steve.

  7. My heart is heavy and broken, and my prayers go out to Kayla Mueller’s family. Rest well, sweet girl. You have given so much for the “least among us”. Your reward should be great, as our Christ has promised.

    I hope and pray that our incredible president will bring her murderers to justice soon. And if captured alive, I hope these hatefilled killers are tried and convicted in our courts and sent to one of our prisons to live out their lives in a 6×8 for the remainder of their days. And I hope that if they do, they will see her young, smiling face every time they close their eyes, and suffer each and every moment for what they’ve done to an innocent girl who had NOTHING to do with their trumped-up war against sanity.

  8. It became politicized when several other articles I read about this – they came from RW sources – that were calling this woman names and calling her a hateful liberal because she showed compassion and spoke out for the Palestinian people who are being slaughtered by the state of Israel. She did not speak from a political place, she was just having compassion for anyone who is being deprived of their freedoms to live in peace.
