Former Taliban hostage: U.S. and Europe failed James Foley

At least one other American remains in the hands of ISIS.

In the video of ISIS beheading American journalist James Foley, the terror group showed American journalist Steven Sotloff, and threatened to kill him too if the United States doesn't stop airstrikes in Iraq.

David Rohde is another American who was held by a terror group.

He was a reporter for the New York Times when the Taliban took him hostage for more than seven months in 2008.

Rohde escaped thanks to the help of a local journalist.
