Boko Haram has wreaked havoc in Nigeria and portions of surrounding nations since 2009, when the Nigerian government tried to crack down on their arms-gathering operations. The group of Islamist terrorists had been known for much of that time to have ties to al-Qaeda, both ideological and tactical. Hundreds, perhaps thousands died in terrorist attacks from 2009 to 2013, many of them targeted for their Christianity. And yet, not until November 2013 did the US finally list Boko Haram as a terrorist group.
Why? We should ask Hillary Clinton. Josh Rogin at The Daily Beast reported last night that the State Department was asked repeatedly during her tenure as Secretary of State to add it to their list of terrorist organizations but refused to do so:

Boko Haram hates the West. So does Hillary, so why should she be critical of Boko Haram?
Boko Haram.....hmmmm. Wasn’t Robin Trower their guitarist in the early days?
Uh huh. Thanks for the reminder.
THE WOMAN WHO WOULD BE PRESIDENT
Hillary Clinton decried the infamous kidnapping of 300 Nigerian schoolgirls, but she never mentioned that her State Department (which she ruled w/ an iron hand)---- refused to place the savage "Boko Haram" terrorist group on the State Dept list of foreign terrorist organizations...... way back in 2011, after the group bombed UN headquarters in Abuja.
Hillary's refusal came despite the urging of the Justice Department, the FBI, the CIA, and over a dozen Senators and Congressmen.
The one thing she could have done, the one tool she had at her disposal, she didnt use. And nobody can say she wasnt urged to do it. Its gross hypocrisy, said a former senior U.S. official who was involved in the debate.
The FBI, the CIA, and the Justice Department really wanted Boko Haram designated, they wanted the authorities that would provide to go after them, and they voiced that repeatedly to elected officials. (Excerpt) Read more at thedailybeast.com ...
Web site--- Details on US aid to Nigeria---the agencies involved. Totals some $600,000,000.
Their charming leader looks like nothing so much as a crackhead in my NYC neighborhood circa 1989.
In the nineties Hillary had people shot, gassed and burned because they were - wait for it - Religious fanatics who allegedly possessed fully automatic firearms, and who were allegedly molesting children. But that was then, and this is now.
Every one of those children can die and a dozen more replace them, and die, everyday for a year and STILL liberals will not DARE say anything politically incorrect.
A liberal can go as far as every single christian on earth having been killed by muslims until he is the last one standing... with a sword to his throat about to be executed... and he would STILL not say anything politically incorrect.

Libs - “ANOTHER PHONEY SCANDAL!”
What diffference, at this point, does it make?
Forget picking up the phone at 3 AM, her answering machine was full from the requests from the FBI and others.
Hilary was listening to the music. She and Bill used to inhale to the 1960s band Procol Harum and wanted to hear them play again.
Boko Haram, Procol Haram...what difference does it make?
BWAHAHA!...is it Friday already?
hillary was just reflecting the opinions of her boss, who loves anyone who hates this country.
