    Hillary's State Department Refused to Brand Boko Haram as Terrorists[W:130]

    Hillary's State Department Refused to Brand Boko Haram as Terrorists - The Daily Beast

    "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.

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

    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.

    Yeah, we wouldn't want to do anything to derail a real war on women.

    First, Boko Haram is it's own entity, Al Qaeda distances itself from them because Boko is too extreme. Only within the past few years have they claimed to be a Muslim religious group. They are and were simply a gang of murderers. They just got done killing 300 people with small arms fired. 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.

    This is a tough call. I think some of the groups they have on the list shouldn't be on there and I think the list lacks in names that should be on there. For a group I don't believe should be on there, MEK in Iraq. They are freedom fighters for Iran. They were mostly educated in US schools and funded through US groups.

    Boko Haram sounds like they should be on that list. It is so political. Lists are so official.

    I always find it amusing when people dishonestly apply that quote out of context. It always shows them for the biased partisans they are and reminds me to never take their opinion seriously, as they cannot be bothered with the truth.

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

    There's no source to back up what its saying, whats worse it claims to have the source but it won't show us

    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 emails obtained by The Daily Beast.
    If I could see the source, I may believe them. But uploading a pdf is too much for them I guess.

    I think a lot of people share your stance.

    The bolded is what the Republican congress should be convening a committee on, instead of the umpteenth witch hunting expedition and raising political contributions on the deaths of these honorable Americans.

    No, she lied to the faces of the families of the dead for political reasons and tried to make it sound like it was no big deal that she was that horrible. It does matter that she is that horrible of a person.

    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.
