    "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."

    More Hilary dithering that resulted in tragedy.

    Over the last 10 years, Boko Haram has killed over 10,000 people, mostly Christians, though people who dont convert to islam with a gun at their head are also killed. Last year they killed 50 school age boys for daring to go to school. They seek to make Sharia law the law of the land, forcing it on non muslims. They are calling on arabs to come and aid in their jihad. Hundreds of students have been killed this year alone, and they have massacred a villiage. And hillary never saw a problem, even after all the church bombings.

    Here is Jackie Speier's report from 2011 (not 2013):

    You can watch her opening statements in the hearing from 2011 here:



    Here's a Daily Beast article about Hillary's failure here:

    Thank you for reminding me of my personal stance on this issue.
    I saw the video of that testimony and she said that out of anger because she was being grilled over Benghazi. His use of that quote isn't far off, and I find it amusing how the Hillary asskissers and apologists constantly find reasons to minimize her ****ed up attitude over the entire Benghazi scandal. That woman has been as worthless as a pimple on a duck's ass since the day she was born. If she hadn't been married to Bill Clinton she's probably still be at some law firm or in jail for some crooked dealings of that firm. She sure as **** wouldn't have been a senator nor Sec State.

    You're terrible at translating if you think your translation is anywhere close to what I said. As in, it may be the worst translation I've ever seen. Seriously, that was terrible. You need to go back to translation school if you think your translation has anything to do with what I said.

    The amusing part is you don't have to translate anything at all, I say it clearly. People who dishonestly take that quote out of context and pretend it is something it's not are biased partisans who kill all credibility in anything else they may say on that particular matter.

    It does when deciding whether we should take the partisan poster's opinion of Hillary's competence seriously.

    In this case, when people dishonestly quote her out of context, it makes it clear no credibility should be given. I really don't understand why it's so hard for people to simply do things in an honest fashion.

    Yeah, I was watching it as it happened. I saw the full context. And she said that, not out of anger of being grilled over Benghazi, but in anger of how the Republicans were using the deaths of 4 Americans as a political talking point, instead of grilling her on the measures being taken to make sure it didn't happen again.

    If you actually read her full quote (or watch the video), it's pretty clear why she's upset. She had already answered the question being asked multiple times, but the person grilling her wouldn't accept her answer. He kept wanting to make it political, when that's not what that setting should have been. That setting should have been about what went wrong with security and how to make sure it never happens again.

    His use of that quote isn't far off
    It's completely off.

    and I find it amusing how the Hillary asskissers and apologists
    I'm neither an asskisser nor an apologists, I'm simply someone interested in facts. People who dishonestly quote her out of context are not interested in facts, they are interested in cheap partisan points.

    constantly find reasons to minimize her ****ed up attitude over the entire Benghazi scandal.
    Yes, how awful of her to want to talk about ways to prevent more American casualties! Republicans need to win elections, dammit! What's the matter with Clinton, doesn't she know Republicans need to politicize their deaths to win elections?

    The only ****ed up attitude over Benghazi are what Republicans are doing. They are using the deaths of Americans for political purposes. Everyone now knows what happened and we all know why it happened. We know why the aftermath was shaped as it was. Republicans keep bleating about Benghazi because it probably scores well in political polls.

    That woman has been as worthless as a pimple on a duck's ass since the day she was born.
    And yet, this one incident aside, Hillary has been highly regarded across the country and in many parts of the world as a terrific Secretary of State. But I'm guessing facts don't really matter to people only interested in team politics.

    If she hadn't been married to Bill Clinton she's probably still be at some law firm
    Probably. But I fail to see what that has to do with anything. For example, if you were objective and not obviously biased, you'd probably agree with me about being frustrated by people who dishonestly take her quote out of context. If Ted Cruz were black, he probably wouldn't be a Republican Senator from Texas.

    We can play the "if" game all day long. I'm far more interested in reality.

    Re: Hillary's State Department Refused to Brand Boko Haram as Terrorists

    All anyone has to do is go to the State Department's website and see that Boko Haram was classified as a terrorist organization way back in 2012...Of course doing so would negate the BS narrative.

    Enlightenment...likelyhood? Slim to none.

    Really?.....can you explain why the Daily beast had an Exclusive over this issue showing such was not the case? Is there some sort of Link that shows Boko Haram was added to such a list Way Back in 2012 as you say?

    "Secretary of State John Kerry eventually added Boko Haram and its splinter group Ansaru to the list of foreign terrorist organizations in November 2013, following a spate of church bombings and other acts that demonstrated the groupís escalating abilities to wreak havoc.

    ‪Being placed on the State Departmentís list of foreign terrorist organizations allows U.S. law enforcement and intelligence agencies to use certain tools and authorities, including several found in the Patriot Act. The designation makes it illegal for any U.S. entities to do business with the group in question. It cuts off access to the U.S. financial system for the organization and anyone associating with it. And the designation also serves to stigmatize and isolate foreign organizations by encouraging other nations to take similar measures."








    Sure was an effective move....I'll just bet Kerry wishes he did it earlier too. You know...Hillary's ass is getting big as well.
