WASHINGTON -- Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is assailing "the absolute barbarity" displayed by terrorists and criminals around the world.
Clinton tells ABC's "Good Morning America" the U.S. government is doing everything possible to help the family of David Hartley, an American tourist who reportedly was murdered on a Texas-Mexico border lake. Clinton, traveling in Europe, says "the beheaded body of the brave Mexican investigator that just showed up shows what we're dealing with."
Hartley hasn't been seen since Sept. 30. His wife, Tiffany, says pirates on Falcon Lake opened fire on them from speedboats while they were returning from Mexico to the United States on Jet Skis. She managed to flee to the Texas side of the lake formed from a dammed section of the Rio Grande.
