U.S. Tried To Rescue Foley In Syria And Just Missed

This poet has often castigated Obama for being feckless when it comes to fighting terror
Too often his positions and policies seem to be lacking and in error
The news that at least we tried to rescue James Foley in Syria but evidently just missed
He deserves our support for putting together a rescue force and the effort we cannot dismiss
In a perfect world the hostages would have been at the site
Rescued and their captors  are all killed in a firefight
But the world is not perfect and most likely very soon another journalist with his head will pay
But this nation hopefully from a new commitment to destroy ISIS will not stray
Hopefully as it is not clear that other than well aimed gnat strikes there appears to be no plan
To contain, to kill and keep these barbarians from ever appearing in this land
