U.S. Rep. Ryan: Second beheading by Islamic State reflects weak foreign policy

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Janesville House Republican Paul Ryan said Tuesday that the reported beheading of a second U.S. journalist reflects a weak foreign policy by the Obama administration.

The House budget chairman heard the news while answering questions at a Rotary Club luncheon in Milwaukee.

An organizer mentioned an Internet video that was posted at mid-day, purportedly showing the beheading of Steven Sotloff.

That was after the Islamic State put out a video last month showing Marquette graduate James Foley being beheaded.

Ryan called for a moment of silence, and then said the Obama administration caused a "power vacuum" that allowed the Islamic State to become prominent so quickly.

Ryan said the U.S. needs a strong and decisive campaign to "finish off" the terrorist group.
