I knew journalist Jim Foley in Iraq where he worked as part of the reporting team on the United States Agency for International Development [USAID] Project, Tatweer, before he moved on to more challenging assignments.

Jim was the eighth person I personally knew from my time in Iraq who has been killed.

It always tears me apart to see innocent, selfless, dedicated and talented people like Jim taken away at too early an age and for all the wrong reasons.

Jim was a brave, fearless and yet quiet man who was loved by all. He had no ego, no guile, just a dedication to a vision of what he wanted to accomplish.

He was an inspiration.
