Clinton refused to call Boko Haram a terrorist group even after threatening our ambassador


Shades of Benghazi. Hillary got lucky on this one. Stevens wasn’t so lucky. Better yet? The U.S.  accused Nigeria of war crimes in going after Boko Haram. Now we learn that we were fine in having our Ambassador to Nigeria threatened without a response. Does anyone really wonder anymore why we are so disrespected and the world is winding up in a free for all?

Secretary of State John Kerry says he has “credible evidence” that Nigeria has committed “human rights violations” in retaliating against the Islamists.

Daily Mail :

Boko Haram vowed in February 2012 to assassinate Ambassador Terence McCulley if the U.S. helped Nigeria with terror-fighting efforts
‘We know his house … We know his vehicle and the time he leaves his house and the time he returns,’ the group said in a communique to media
The warning was similar to Ansar al-Shariah’s pledge to kill U.S. officials in Benghazi, Libya, three months before the deadly 2012 terror attack there
Despite clear threats, Hillary Clinton’s State Department fought efforts to officially designate the mass-murdering Nigerians as a terrorist group
A former State Dept. official said naming new terror groups ‘sent the wrong message’ about al-Qaeda and its allies as Barack Obama ran for re-election

Boko Haram, the African Islamist terror group whose April kidnapping of nearly 300 young girls has united the civilized world in anger, promised to assassinate U.S. ambassador to Nigeria Terence McCulley in February 2012, vowing to murder him if America signed a terrorism-fighting Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) with the government in Abuja.

McCulley, now the U.S. ambassador to Ivory Coast, was not harmed. But the threat, coming amid a years-long bombing campaign that killed more than 1,400 Nigerian civilians, didn’t move then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to fast-track the addition of Boko Haram to the U.S. government’s official list of international terrorist groups.

Independent media outlets inside Nigeria first reported on February 9, 2012 that an unnamed Boko Haram leader issued a statement promising that ‘we will murder the U.S. Ambassador if the MOU is signed.’

The revelation provides a stark parallel with assassination warnings issued by Islamist groups in Benghazi, Libya in the months before the September 11, 2012 attack that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other American personnel.

U.S. urged restraint earlier in striking back at Boko Haram

On May 18, 2013 Nigerian war planes “struck militant camps in the northeast” in an attempt to stem the growing tide of Islamic terrorists in the area. The U.S. quickly warned that Nigeria needs to be sure “to respect human rights and not harm civilians.”

Reuters reports that Nigerian troops used “jets and helicopters to bombard targets in their biggest offensive since the Boko Haram group launched a revolt almost four years ago.”

But three days after President Goodluck Jonathan declared a state of emergency in the northeast, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry issued a strongly worded statement saying: “We are … deeply concerned by credible allegations that Nigerian security forces are committing gross human rights violations, which, in turn, only escalate the violence and fuel extremism.”

The situation in northeast Nigeria has become so bad that President Goodluck Jonathan declared a state of emergency there days ago.

Since that time, as Nigeria has used jets and helicopters to try to rein the Islamists in, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry says he has “credible evidence” that Nigeria has committed “human rights violations” in retaliating against the Islamists.

Kerry said he condemns “Boko Haram’s campaign of terror in the strongest terms,” but he wants Nigeria to show “restraint” in their response.

Here is another wizard from the State Department:

“ I want to take this opportunity to stress one key point and that is that religion is not driving extremist violence either in Jos, or northern Nigeria,” Assistant Secretary of State Carson said Monday at a forum on U.S. policy toward Nigeria held at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Washington, D.C. ED.

    If Hillary is the Dem nominee, whoever the GOP nominee is should go after her on these issues. But is there really a GOP candidate with the guts to do so?

      Can we at least have an articulate candidate? The gift of oratory? We shall see what happens this fall. If we don’t get the Senate I doubt that there will be much left by 2016.

    Now she is giving speeches about Bill’s economy. It is clear she is going to run on Bill’s record as president because she cannot run on her record as Secretary of State.

    Has there ever before been a time in recorded history when the confluence of a depraved and corrupt yet determined oligarchy has had as its cannon fodder such a compliant, complacent deaf dumb and blind populace willing to obligingly march to its utter destruction? Is the documented history of the former Soviet Union, Hitler’s Germany, today’s North Korea and Cuba so well hidden that the low information, hip-hoppers, government dependent, college educated, democrat party sycophants and just plain stupid and apethetic unaware as to what awaits them once the elitist and the left steal their freedoms forever? Yes forever, because these freedoms can never be won back once lost. Again, the logical and final extension of socialism/ communism is genocide. Stealing from the pathetic immortal words of Nikita Krueschev, these four words sum up their progressive plans for all of us, We will bury you!

      Well said. I really don’t know if it is even blogging about this anymore. We are indeed marching toward our end, and few of us apparently care. Wake up time America. If I were living in much of the world, I would be sweating bullets. This time we will not be around to save their sorry A**es.

        A world in which the only powers with the moral fiber and self survival instinct to save the western and eastern worlds from Islam are Russia and China is truly turned upside down. In the not so distant future the toughest challenge for the Russian and Chinese infidels may come from the largest muslim country of all, the U.S. of A. Sounds silly?

        Russia has millions of Muslims, and China has had their issues with them as well. They know what danger they are. Too bad we can’t seem to get the drift.

    “credible evidence” – the old ‘pot calling the kettle’ idiom. You know Bunker, delusion can be used to befuddle and control the weak-minded (lacking a foundation of Truth – raised on error and lies). It seems that these ‘do-gooders’ only find fault when they want to involve themselves and takeover when there’s profit to made. Proof: what they’re doing and not doing in America: Detroit, Land Grabs, manipulating the markets, etc. Reminding us again of the ‘whoremongers’ who are contrary to our hope that springs Eternal.
