Before you read this I have a friend who has said his brother (army—special??) Is in Africa looking for the girls).
Nigerian girls inspire international action. May 7 Washington Post. But nowhere in the story will you learn of any action actually being taken to rescue the 276 Nigerian girls abducted over threes weeks ago by the Islamic terror group Boko Haram (heh Hillary you know them don’t you?). Reports of “an international uproar” and a “a growing outcry” by Obama and phone calls by Kerry, a warning by the UN officials and of a letter form all 20 female Senators—nothing.
Preparations for a “team of specialist” to possibly go to Nigeria to possibly help the Nigerian government possibly do something.
Observe modern liberalism: “the sorry spectacle of justice without a sword or of justice unable to us the sword”. Clinton to take action in the form of a much-reported tweet: “access to education is a basic right and an unconscionable reason to target innocent girls. We must stand up to terrorism”. MAN WHAT A POWERFUL STATEMENT, SHE EVEN USED TERRORISM
The tweet commands, “We must stand up to terrorism, “but does the former secretary of state have any actual suggestion for action? Or are we to stand up for a while and then sit back down?
John Rogan—What Clinton didn’t mention was that her own State Dept refused to place Boko Haram on the list of foreign terrorist organizations in 2011, after the group bombed the UN headquarters in Abuja. The refusal came despite the urging of the Justice Dept, the FBI, the CIA and over a dozen Senators and congressmen.
The FBI, CIA and the Justice Dept really wanted Boko designated, they wanted the authorities that would provide to go after them.
Gen. Carter Ham the chief of US African Command said that Boko provided a “safe haven” for al-Q in the Islamic Maghreb and was likely sharing explosives and funds with the group. Clinton’s state dept still declined to place Boko on its official terrorist roster.
Being placed on the list of foreign terrorist organizations allows US law enforcement and intelligence agencies to use certain tolls and authorities including several found the Patriot Act, makes if illegal for any US entities to do business with the groups. It cuts off access to the US financial system. Serves to stigmatize and isolate foreign organizations by encouraging other nations to take similar measures.
Peter Meehan and his dems counterpart Jackie Spier put out a lengthy report in 2011 laying out the evidentiary basis for naming Boko a terrorist organization, including the group’s ties to Al-Q in the ISMAIC Maghreb and to Somalia’s al-Shabab terrorist organization. (AND THEY CLINTON TO BE PRESIDENT—GOD HELP US)
Kerry eventually listed Boko as a terrorist organization in 2013. But that is about all the action the Obama adm took.
It would be nice to learn the Obama adm has ordered the military (SEE ABOVE) to plan to destroy or cripple Boko
There is one woman who, perhaps more than anyone else in the world, has spent much of the last decade warning about groups like Boko and campaigning for stronger actions against the Islamist who terrorize girls in Nigeria and elsewhere. Her name is Ayaan Hirsi Ali. She was recently and disgracefully disinvited by Brandeis University, which had offered her an honorary degree. It would be nice to see Hillary speak up and stand up on her behalf—she won’t
