The Real War on Women: Will Boko Haram Harm Hillary?

May 8th, 2014 - 1:44 pm

Already battered by Benghazi — and with more battering certain to come, how damning we don’t yet know —  Hillary Clinton has been slammed once again by news that the State Department, while she was secretary of State, refused to brand Boko Haram as a terror organization.  (One wonders what they would have called the Gestapo.)

Josh Rogin of The Daily Beast broke this highly disturbing story:

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.

In the past week, Clinton, who made protecting women and girls a key pillar of her tenure at the State Department, has been a vocal advocate for the 200 Nigerian girls kidnapped by Boko Haram, the loosely organized group of militants terrorizing northern Nigeria. Her May 4 tweet about the girls, using the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls, was cited across the media and widely credited for raising awareness of their plight.

Well, better late than never, as they say.  Or better panicked than never.

Of course, anyone who had been paying the slightest attention to world affairs, surely a secretary of State, would have known about Boko Haram’s legendary psychopathic misogyny for years. So what possible excuse would there be for not branding them a terror organization?  Could this have been the work of the same person who refused to answer pleas for backup from our now deceased ambassador in Libya?  It’s certainly consistent.  Or maybe she just didn’t want to do anything to endanger the family cash flow from the UAE and elsewhere.

Clinton’s spokespeople unsurprisingly refused multiple requests for comment on The Daily Beast’s story, which deserves to be read in its entirety as it is excellent reporting by Rogin. (The FBI, CIA and the Justice Department, among others, were all lined up against State in seeking to have Boko Haram declared a terror organization.  Interesting too, Boko Haram was allied with al Qaeda, a connection that takes back again to… Benghazi.  It was over a year after that event, November 2013, that State, under Kerry, finally declared Boko Haram to be terrorists.)

So how will this all play out for Hillary going forward?

Hillary's Deputy Chief of Staff at the State Dept was Huma Abedin, who has family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and belonged, herself, to a Muslim sisterhood organization.
Could this be a connection to Hillary's failure to label an obvious terrorist group a terrorist group? Or is it just that she likes all the Muslim contributions to The Clinton Foundation?

Joe Biden just declared Procol Harum a terrorist group and a racist one at that because, he believes they are advancing a whiter shade of pale.

Where are all those usually screaming "Islamophobia" for any criticism of Islam given these recent Boko Haram atrocities. Silence? Excuses? Obfuscation? Islam once again demonstrates the compassion and love inherent in the "religion of peace." There is no peaceful coexistence for Islam. It is an evil ideology disguised as a religion. Erase this evil from the earth.

The reason for that is the Nigerian government. They believed that it would lend credence to Boko Haram's actions by giving them a worldwide audience and further embolden their leaders.

I believe that this failure to act by Hilary Clinton has Huma Abedin's fingerprints all over it. It also shows Clinton's ignorance about islam.
