GRETCHEN CARLSON: A sad day for America, right?
K.T. McFARLAND: You bet. And I'm not sure it's a day that had to happen. You know, the president has stuck his head in the sand. We now have evidence that he's known about the threat that was mounting, coming, the ability of ISIS to take large areas, be well-funded, be well-armed, and have this jihadist agenda of killing, murdering, raping, crucifying, beheading anybody who gets in their way. Americans, Christians, religious minorities, even other Muslims. And the president stuck his head in the sand, and now we've seen two Americans have lost their heads. And this is not where it's going to be over, Gretchen. That's what's so upsetting. There are some 20 other unaccounted-for journalists who have been missing for the last year in Syria and in Iraq. There's one American -- 26-year-old girl who's an aid worker. We have hundreds, if not thousands, of Americans now in Iraq and doing -- in the oil industry, in the energy industry -- and doing aid workers and working at hospitals teaching at schools; they're all vulnerable.
