    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.



    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.
    I quoted the article as to when they started pressuring the state dept, which clearly says, "early 2013." Additionally as many have pointed out, the source for the article seems quite questionable.

    Then it seem you missed this part.

    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.....snip~


    That's when they introduced legislation.....Hill-dog stepped down on Feb 1st.

    Meehan and Speier did put out their Report in 2011 long before Hillary Stepped down.

    If I could see the source, I may believe them. But uploading a pdf is too much for them I guess.

    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
    Bush is still responsible for, well, everything, right? He left in 2009.

    Heya Mac .....that's Right, it doesn't. Looks like she is going to have some more trouble for running and making the dash to the Presidency. Seems Last week an IG report came out about 8 sex abuse cases with the State Dept. Then for some reason the Reports were taken. So now two women have come out talking about it. All this while BO went after the Military and Secret Service.



    Hillary Clinton's State Department Record Continues to Let Down Our Girls.....


    Hillary Clinton claims to be a staunch supporter of women and girls everywhere, but her record as Secretary of State tells a different story.

    Lets start with the most recent revelations about Boko Haram, one of the most brutal terror groups in the world. Recent reports show Boko Haram extremists have kidnapped 300 schools girls in Nigeria, ranging in age from nine to thirteen, and has been threatening to sell them into slavery. Further, the terror group has been raping the girls while in captivity. Activists in the United States have been calling on the U.S. government to work with the Nigerian government to find them and get them back, Clinton included.

    11:05 AM - 4 May 2014

    The problem? During her time as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton refused to designate Boko Haram as a terrorist group despite multiple pleas from Congress to do so. So much for "standing up to terrorism." An official terrorist designation from the State Department would have made it easier not only to possibly prevent the kidnappings, but to send help immediately when the incident occurred. Josh Rogin at the Daily Beast has the exclusive details:

    But Clinton's failure on behalf of our girls doesn't start or end with Boko Haram. Before leaving her position as Secretary in February of 2013, Clinton failed to hold people inside the State Department accountable for the abuse of young girls overseas, which means it will happen again. I detail her record in my forthcoming book Assault and Flattery: The Truth About The Left and Their War on Women.

    Take for example the case of a State Department security official stationed in Beirut who was accused of engaging in multiple sexual assaults, or the U.S. ambassador who was accused of regularly ditching his "protective security detail in order to solicit sexual favors from both prostitutes and minor children." Or how about the fact that many of Clinton's security detail were accused of regularly hiring young female prostitutes in foreign countries during official State Department trips.

    Further, women who dared to expose the alleged abuse of male diplomats were run out of town and intimidated. Those who repeatedly engaged in improper sexual activity were never held accountable.

    In the latest black eye for the scandal-ridden State Department, a whistleblower claims she was run out of the foreign service after complaining about a consul general’s alleged office trysts with subordinates and hookers.

    Kerry Howard says she was bullied, harassed and forced to resign after she exposed US Consul General Donald Moore’s alleged security-threatening shenanigans in the Naples, Italy, office.

    Howard is just the latest whistleblower to allege that Hillary Rodham Clinton’s State Department allowed sexual misbehavior to continue unchecked.

    Last week, The Post reported that Aurelia Fedenisn, an investigator at the department’s inspector-general office, wrote a memo outlining eight cases of supposed sexual misconduct, but that they were removed from an IG report.....snip~

    What is happening to our government? We are rotting from within! High level people soliciting prostitutes is one thing - and we probably don't know the half of it - but it doesn't sound as if it stopped there. Eight sex abuse cases within the State Department that they are aware of? Aren't the people at the State Department getting any security checks before they are hired?

    As far as Boko Haram, "one of the most brutal terrorist groups in the world" kidnapping 300 young girls, and raping them while in captivity... this is so tragic that I feel like throwing up! Sending counselors will do what exactly? Make them feel better about what happened to them? And their religious leaders allow this?

    The choices are limited to three people, in my opinion. But somebody knows, and no reports are ever typed without copies being made, so here comes another scandal. Like we need another airing of dirty laundry being covered up! It's becoming almost routine these days, isn't it? :
