As reported first and seen on Fox News: ABC News also aired a dramatic 10-second video showing Kayla Mueller pleading for help shortly after Islamic State fighters kidnapped her in Syria.
The brief clip served as her proof-of-life video.
“My name is Kayla Mueller… I need your help,” she was reported as saying in the video. “I’ve been here too long, and I’ve been very sick. It’s, it’s very terrifying here.”
Carl Mueller told ABC News he didn’t make his comment about Obama’s non-donation lightly.
“You see the flag at my driveway. It’s not something I take lightly, talking about our president that way, but that’s what he said,” he said.
