White House sent three officials to Michael Brown funeral but ZERO to James Foley memorial service
The Obama White House sent three officials to attend Monday's funeral of slain teenager Michael Brown in Missouri, but sent no one to represent the president when photojournalist James Foley, decapitated by a terrorist on video, was memorialized Sunday in a New Hampshire church.
Foley was held captive by militants linked to the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) before they killed him and released footage a week ago.
Marlon Marshall, deputy director of the White House Office of Public Engagement, is the highest-level official who made the trip to attend Monday's funeral in St. Louis.
He's a native of the Missouri city and attended high school with Brown's mother.
