Skip to comments.Hillary Clinton Denies any Responsibility for Boko Haramís Terrorism
Posted on 05/10/2014 10:01:35 AM PDT by John Semmens
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clintons attempt to join in the widespread condemnation of the Nigerian terror group Boko Harams kidnapping spree bumped up against evidence that her efforts at State blocked this organization from being added to the terror watch list.
In her defense, Clinton contended I had no way of knowing then that they would later kidnap 300 girls to sell into slavery. It was my impression then that Boko Haram was engaged in a campaign to uplift impoverished Muslims in Nigeria.
In contradiction to Clintons assertions, the FBI, the CIA, and the Justice Department all pleaded with the State Department to have Boko Haram designated a terrorist organization. That may well be, Hillary said, I dont specifically recall. What I do remember is that Bill assured me that fighting poverty was their mission. And for that I didnt think they deserved to be stigmatized with a terrorist label.
Judging from its actions, the real target of Boko Haram appears to be education. For years it has been murdering teachers and students. In fact, roughly translated, Boko Haram means education is sin. Kidnapping school girls to sell as sex slaves seems more a blow against education than an anti-poverty program.
The former Secretary of State maintained that whatever I did do back then is no longer relevant. I cant undo it now. So what does that matter at this point? I want to go on record today as deploring their latest atrocity.
Current Secretary of State John Kerry placed Boko Haram on the terror watch list in November 2013. Much as we might want to sympathize with their anger against a world they did not make, the simple fact is that they do not offer any kind of health insurance for either their troops or the people they seek to subjugate, Kerry complained. To us this is a stark reminder of how barbaric they are in their outlook. President Obama has declared that health insurance is a human right. Lack of respect for this right by Boko Haram leaves us no choice but to classify them as terrorists.

Well, when you support a terrorist, this is what you get. We can’t have terrorist supporters in office in this country
What difference does it make at this point anyway? People are tired of this phony crisis. They were all women with the right to choose, although nobody said who's choice they have to live with if they are followers of Islam? It took a village.
Marjory Margolies Mezvinsky (Dem-PA) was a Congressman when Bill Clinton was president. The then-buzz is Billy cajoled Marjorie into voting for a tax hike---she promptly got voted out at the next election. But she had a bigger problem on her hands.
Marjorie's then-husband (Chelsea's FIL), is a convicted felon. Edward Mezvinsky, a lawyer, and, himself, a former Congressman, got conned into several notorious several Nigerian-based email financial frauds guaranteed to make you rich.
So in his haste to get rich quick, to raise money to get in on these "heaven-sent" investment schemes, Edward defrauded many of his friends and business contacts. He even dropped the Clinton's names to get people to give him money.
Alas, when the Nigerians got their hands on Edwards' money, they did a 23-skidoo. Having failed to come up w/ his ROI, Edward got nabbed by the long arm of the law. Mezvinsky pleaded guilty to 31 of 69 felony counts.. He did hard time----spent 7+ years in a federal prison w/ no chance of parole, and still owes millions in restitution.
Congressman wannabe Marjory Margolies is also no stranger to the dollar disease. Because of her husband's felony convictions, she filed for bankruptcy. But the court would NOT discharge her of her debts, finding that she could NOT explain where some $1 million in assets had vanished, in the previous 4 year span.
WIKI Mezvinsky's Criminal activities: Mezvinsky was involved in a series of business transactions that ultimately led to his downfall.
Beginning in the early 1990s Mezvinsky fell prey to a wide variety of infamous Nigerian 419 scams. According to a federal prosecutor, Mezvinsky was conned by "just about every different kind of African-based scam weve ever seen."
In order to raise the funds needed to front the money for the fraudulent investment schemes he was being offered, Mezvinsky became, himself, a conman, tapping his network of contacts and dropping the name of the Clinton family to convince unwitting marks to give him money.
In March 2001, Mezvinsky was indicted and later pleaded guilty to 31 of 69 felony charges of bank fraud, mail fraud, and wire fraud. Nearly $10 million was involved in the crimes. Shortly after his indictment, he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, but the judge at his trial disallowed a mental illness defense. He served his time at Federal Prison Camp, Eglin.
Mezvinsky, Federal Bureau of Prisons # 55040-066, was released in April 2008. He remained on federal probation until 2011, and owes substantial restitution to his victims.
Didn’t the name “western education is forbidden” give you a clue, Hilary? They began wholesale slaughtering and killing from 2009 onwards. Why didn’t you clue in then?
It’s pretty clear this idiot woman personifies the Peter Principle like no one in history.
This professional liar also claimed to have come under intense sniper fire as she and Web’s daughter exited a plane in Bosnia. Then, she had to walk it back because too many of her flunkies on the trip said no such thing happened.
Hillary “not my fault for anything” Clinton.
Just like her husband. Thousands of people have been killed or wounded, lives ripped apart due to their actions. Actions that ALWAYS favor our enemies.
“This professional liar also claimed to have come under intense sniper fire ..”
Was Hillary implying that the Serbs couldn’t hit the side of a barn?
Hillary is a Liar Shade of Pale.
