I never understood why journalists think being apart of the press will protect them. If your news organization thinks the story is that important it shouldn't that big of a deal to hire "private security".

Foley was well aware of the dangers he faced. He was kidnapped in Libya in a similar event. They just didn't execute him, of course. But the guy seemed passionate about telling the story of the innocent victims of ongoing mid east conflicts. Just as soldiers are willing to give their lives for a greater cause. So was he. Though, I doubt he ever planned on becoming a pawn in an international conflict?
