What is unclear is if previous investigations into Foley's whereabouts 
were inaccurate, if ISIS militants somehow captured Foley from some of 
the regime's most elite security, or if the Assad regime provided Foley 
to ISIS.

"Until recently, James Foley was thought to be in hands of pro-Assad 
forces. If Assad is handing over Westerners to ISIS to be killed, it 
indicates Assad feels cornered, looking for leverage," BBC's Kim Ghattas 
tweeted, adding that the assessment jibes with what her sources in 
Damascus have told her recently.

Ghattas added that Assad providing Foley to ISIS "would confirm Assad 
tacitly working [with] ISIS and silence any suggestions Assad is the 
better alternative. "
