    Yes, the leader of that group has stated as much. The man is obviously a religious psychopath.

    I was appealing to and questioning her humanity, not her partisan alignment.
    I think she cares. She is a human being with two daughters around that age herself.

    By 'remaining' I mean the ones who have not been sold off to forced marriages in other countries.

    One thing I do know is millions of Tweets don't do **** beside make people feel good about themselves..
    It's true, but people feel so helpless and need an outlet to express themselves.

    I think that there are times when religion can be good, but other times not so much. It's really more dependent upon how fanatical a person is about their religion I think.

    I think it's just terrible what happened here, and SOME of the girls are missing from the video. I wonder if they're still alive. Also, I can't imagine how frustrated their parents and loved ones must feel right about now. I hear that it's quite a large area where they could be keeping these girls, so the government would naturally have problems pinpointing their location. However, I don't think there is ANY excuse for allowing these types of groups to become SO powerful to begin with, and THAT is the part that really pisses me off!

    The picture of the girls is pretty troubling. The people who have abducted them are not reasonable. I cannot see a good outcome to this. Any military/police action will be met with using the girls as shields. A prisoner exchange will only bolster their likelihood to do this again.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    It's a really complicated situation that I don't see ending well. Things like this make me realize how LUCKY I am to be a US citizen, living here in the good ole US. These governments really need to take control of these groups and not tolerate it. They need to active seek out and destroy these groups before they become such an issue. I know they're probably poor, but let's not fool ourselves, a lot of these countries' governments (not necessarily Nigeria - not real sure) are not cooperative with the US or other countries when it comes to terrorism and other things.

    Well, IMO, this makes it 10 times worse.

    Not all girls in video were taken in April 14 raid, some relatives say - CNN.com

    Some of the girls may have been taken in abductions dating back at least two years, an uncle of one of the girls who escaped and the parents of two missing girls told CNN.

    It's unclear if any of the girls shown in the video released by French news agency Agence France-Presse have been yet identified by parents as being among the 276 abducted April 14.

    How long have competing tribes been kidnapping women over there? For centuries?

    Then she should just lean across the bed to her husband and ask what he's going to do about it. Is she hoping to encourage Muslims to clean out the cancer in their midst?
