They locked up 40 young school boys in side a school and set fire to the building killing all inside. give up on trying to save the young women as they are most likely already distributed around the area and will be sold for approximately $12 per woman. They will now live as slaves and be instructed under the insane version of the Koran.
    So your point is, Al Qaeda is the voice of reason?

    Thank you for reminding me of my personal stance on this issue.

    More Hilary dithering that resulted in tragedy.

    Heya JM. Yep Bennett and his morning Crew were talking about this very subject. Which Bennett even had them validate that over the radio.

    Also, the problem is that Hillary Clinton is so amazingly stupid that she thinks you can "ensure this never happens again" without understanding the cause. The thing is, the problem that needed to be fixed was that she was Secretary of State. Granted, John Kerry isn't really not a fix to that problem. I think that actually managed to make things worse.
    To her it was no Big deal.....that's why she never checked back on her people to see if they made it out or not. Hicks testified to that. Only time she called was when he talked to her.

    Yep you're Right.....it got worse with Kerry now. First it was Dumb.....now its Dumber.

    The State Department under Hillary Clinton fought hard against placing the al Qaeda-linked militant group Boko Haram on its official list of foreign terrorist organizations for two years. And now, lawmakers and former U.S. officials are saying that the decision may have hampered the American government's ability to confront the Nigerian group that shocked the world by abducting hundreds of innocent girls.


    Risch and seven other GOP senators introduced legislation in early 2013 that would have forced Clinton to designate the group or explain why she thought it was a bad idea. The State Department lobbied against the legislation at the time, according to internal State Department e-mails obtained by The Daily Beast.

    In the House, leading intelligence minded lawmakers wrote letter after letter to Clinton urging her to designate Boko Haram as terrorists. The effort in the House was led by then-Homeland Security Committee Chairman Peter King and Patrick Meehan, Chairman of the Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence.

    Meehan and his Democratic counterpart Jackie Speier put out a lengthy report in 2011 laying out the evidentiary basis for naming Boko Haram a terrorist organization, including the group's ties to Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb and to Somalia’s al-Shabab terrorist organization.

    Unbelievable.
    REALLY!!?? You guys are f'ing nuts. Hillary left Feb 1, 2013, so how long could she personally be responsible for this. Secondly you hardly find a more nutter man Risch, I was in Idaho the past 20+ years, so I can totally understand why Hillary would ignore him and assume he was being the usual rightwing drama queen.

    The dates alone mean this is NOT in Hillary's court. Perhaps she simply chose to ignore it in "early 2013" since she knew she was leaving and felt that type of designation should be determined by the new head of state dept

    And her reason for ignoring the seven other Senators, the numerous letters she was being sent, as well as Jackie Speier's lengthy report in 2011, was that they were all drama queens?

    Maybe she just wanted to make sure she could get a new "personal maid" when she wanted one.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

    It couldn't have been too lengthy if it started in "early 2013" and she left Feb 1, 2013. Sorry, just can't happen. Now you mention a 2011 report but it appears by what I'm reading that report was primarily pushed in .... "early 2013".

    This is just more Hillary bashing. If y'all are really so upset, you need to be going after Hillary's successor.

    You apparently didn't read what you quoted.

    In the House, leading intelligence minded lawmakers wrote letter after letter to Clinton urging her to designate Boko Haram as terrorists. The effort in the House was led by then-Homeland Security Committee Chairman Peter King and Patrick Meehan, Chairman of the Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence.

    Of course this is Hillary bashing. Kerry wasn't the one on the receiving end of those reports, letters, legislation, etc. He was still a US Senator then. The buck stopped with her until February 2013.
