    Well until another month or so, lapses.....huh?

    The following month, Gen. Carter Ham, the chief of U.S. Africa Command, said that Boko Haram “are likely sharing funds, training, and explosive materials” with al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb. And yet, Hillary Clinton’s State Department still declined to place Boko Haram on its official terrorist roster.....snip~

    The Chief of that reservation didn't know what he was talking about according to Hill Dog and her team.

    The fact is you have now proof that putting Boko Haram on the list would have stopped the kidnapping. And she did do something, she put the leaders on the list, so she has a defense come 2016.

    The mission was making "UBL is dead, GM is alive and Al Qaeda is on the run" sound very much true. Saying that terrorist groups based on whacked out Islamic extremists are growing, networking and sharing resources is not exactly compatible with the official Obama line.

    So your brilliant insight is to appease terrorists as they maim and kill hundreds, because they might stop talking? How does talking with terrorists, let alone appeasing them go, typically?

    I think more correctly, you dont know whats happening.

    Well.....she will need it and whole lot more than that for a defense. Lets also remember putting those 3 leaders on a list, for Sanctions didn't mean we could go and hunt any of them down.

    Any excuse will do, really.

    At the time, the sentiment that was expressed by the administration was this was a local grievance and therefore not a threat to the United States or its interests,” he said. “They were saying al Qaeda was on the run and our argument was contrary to that. It has metastasized and it is actually in many ways a growing threat and this is a stark example of that.”

    Carson defended the decision to avoid naming Boko Haram a terrorist organization in a Wednesday phone call with reporters......snip~

    Even after all that time has passed and with the Event taking place.....Carson still stood by what he said. Even up to Last Wed. Imagine That!
