U.S. mission to rescue hostages in Syria failed
President Barack Obama sent special operations troops to Syria this summer on a secret mission to rescue American hostages, including journalist James Foley, held by Islamic State extremists, but they did not find them, the Obama administration said today. Officials said the rescue mission was authorized after intelligence agencies believed they had identified the location inside Syria where the hostages were being held.
