(CNN) - Some of the families of Americans taken hostage by ISIS terrorists have been critical of the Obama administration's efforts to negotiate releases of their loved ones. And now, some indication that the White House is trying to fix whatever problems exist.
The mother of one of those murdered hostages, journalist James Foley, openly assailed the Obama administration after her son's murder, saying U.S. officials seemed disengaged and even annoyed by efforts to free him. Now, President Obama has ordered a review of how U.S. hostage cases are handled going forward.
But what will that mean for the country's longstanding refusal to negotiate with terrorists?
CNN's Pamela Brown joined "The Lead" to discuss.
