Michelle Obama’s foray into hashtag diplomacy went about well as intelligent people expected.

ACCRA, Ghana—Nigeria’s Islamist insurgency on Monday kidnapped some 20 girls just miles from a small town where the group abducted several hundred schoolgirls in April, local officials said, in an attack that exposed the military’s absence in an area the president pledged to protect.

The village of Garkin Fulani was preparing for its weekly market early Monday when Boko Haram fighters pulled up in a tractor trailer and began pulling young girls into the truck, said Adu Ibrahim, the area’s chairman for a vigilante group called the Civilian Joint Task Force.

The village straddles the same dirt road that leads to Chibok, a small and remote town where Boko Haram kidnapped 276 schoolgirls in April. The area is the heartland of the insurgency, which has flourished over the past five years despite government efforts to suppress it.

Hillary Clinton refused to call these animals “terrorists” when it could have done some good. But give her a break. She and poor ol’ Bill were down on their luck. They were too busy counting pennies to think about faraway people in faraway places.

Thought it would be the 101st hashtag division.

There's nothing so despicable, so barbaric, or vile that Islamists aren't
Willing to do in the name of their satanic Demi-god Muhammad.
They are absolute evil personified. And those who look the other
Way or make excuses are their accomplices.
To remain silent in the face of this evil blood cult is to
Bare responsibility for all the innocent victims.

"The area is the heartland of the insurgency, which has flourished over the past five years despite government efforts to suppress it."

More likely the Nigerian government is complicit in the success of the insurgency. Probably a variant of the "we'll look the other way as long as you don't shoot us".
