Pressure was growing on Monday night for Western military drones to be used in the hunt for more than 200 schoolgirls abducted in Nigeria, as the terrorist thought to be holding them threatened to marry off girls aged as young as nine.
Experts said that unmanned spy planes of the kind used in Afghanistan could be deployed along with satellite-operated cameras to search the vast areas of desert and woodland where the girls are thought to be hidden. Over the weekend, the Nigerian military massed for a search operation in the Sambisa Forest region, although on Sunday, President Goodluck Jonathan said the government still did not know where the girls were. According to Nigerian police, about 223 girls are still missing after being abducted from their boarding school in the remote northern Nigerian town of Chibok on April 14.
The urgency of the situation was underlined yesterday when Boko Haram, the Islamic extremist group believed to have abducted the girls, released a video in which its leader gloatingly threatened to sell them as slaves.
I abducted your girls, said Abubakar Shekau, who appeared dressed in combat fatigues and standing in front of an armoured personnel carrier. Six masked gunmen flanked him. I will sell them in the market, by Allah. I will marry off a woman at the age of 12. I will marry off a girl at the age of nine.

Prayers that these poor innocent girls are reunited with their families and their kidnappers face swift justice.
This is an incident that I’d approve Special Forces getting involved rescuing these girls.
Has this news been forwarded to MSNBC, Keith Ellison, Rev. Al Sharpton, Rev Jessie Jackson, Nancy Pelosi, Sandra Fluke?????
if that's the case then the government and parents ust need to cobble some cash together and go buy them back.
Where’s obama weighing in with his 2 cents? Oh, that’s right—a Muslim approves of such actions and we know he stands with them. It sounds like his personal war on women to me.
