Why Did Hillary Clinton Defend Boko Haram?
Powerline ^ | May 8, 2014 | John Hinderaker

Posted on 05/09/2014 8:50:11 PM PDT by QT3.14

Boko Haram, the Islamic terrorist organization in Nigeria, is in the news because it kidnapped more than 200 teenage girls and now threatens to sell them into slavery. (That’s what a real war on women looks like.) This is just the latest of many outrages committed by Boko Haram, which is guilty of many acts of mass murder. But it has now come out that for two years, Hillary Clinton blocked efforts to add Boko Haram to the State Department’s list of terrorist organizations.

This wasn’t just an episode of bureaucratic indifference. The Justice Department, the FBI, the CIA and many in Congress lobbied the State Department to list Boko Haram, but Clinton stood firm in defense of the Nigerian terrorists. Now, with the kidnapping outrage in the news, Hillary is tweeting away on behalf of the Nigerian girls. (THAT will do a lot of good!) But where was she in 2011 and 2012?

Hillary made a deal to send BILLIONS to Pakistan. 70% of the women in Pakistani prison are there because they were raped.

So it’s the republicans that have the “war on women?”

Because either Iran or Saudia Arabia is paying her off to do that. Nigeria certainly isn’t strategic enough to warrant a hands off when a war crime has occurred.

Hillary Rodham Clinton thought she was the smartest person on the planet. Sometimes, she has made decisions that would undermine that fallacy. Unfortunately, just like her husband who has no moral compass, HRC is being protected and lifted up by the main stream media.

who speak out of one side of their face when that is convenient and out of the other side when it’s not

always every time with an agenda for when and why they seek to bury their hyocrisy

The answer according to one report I read somewhere suggested the Clinton Global Initiative gets $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ from Nigeria or from some entity on behalf of Nigeria. The African continent is prime territory for the Soros-Clinton cabal.

Their tentacles are global in reach.

4 Americans killed in Benghazi.....

Democrats: "....So what, .....what difference does it make?"

200+ Mexican citizens die from weapons supplied to gangsters by the US DOJ/ATF.....

Democrats: "....So what, .....what difference does it make?"

200+ Christian girls kidnapped and sold into slavery.....

Democrats: "....So what, .....what difference does it make?"*

*(they only cared about the girls after four weeks of protests and bad press)

Hillary is so vulnerable on this. She was in charge of foreign affairs, yet her record on basic human rights and dignity for women is just ghastly.

She didn't lift a finger as SecState to oppose BOKO HARAM.....but, oh boy, NOW she's twittering!!

It’s all part of her basically evil nature.

If Boko Haram hadn’t kidnapped those girls, Hillary would have.

And to think that some in America want her to run for POTUS.

If she succeeds, America deserves every calamity coming her way.

She was just following the lead of moveon.org. They took the petition down few days ago, to hide their love of terrorists.

If BOKO HARAM has the girls, that’s 200 fewer girls to which Bill has access and reduces the potential of 200 more bimbo eruptions.

That petition doesn’t say they’re not a terrorist group only that officially putting them on the list would be the wrong way to deal with them.

Hillary Rodham Clinton thought she was the smartest person on the planet.

Listen to her speech pattern, watch her body language, try to decipher her impromptu remarks: she has a normal IQ at best and exhibits the behavior of a sociopath.

One of the things power-crazed Dummycrats have elevated to an art is to act like it never happened (when their policies turn disastrous). "Faking amnesia means never having to say you're sorry."

=================================================

THE WOMAN WHO WOULD BE PRESIDENT Hillary Clinton is now decrying 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 didn’t use. And nobody can say she wasn’t urged to do it. It’s 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 ...

Hillary refused to place the savage "Boko Haram" terrorist group on the State Dept list of foreign terrorist organizations.....and today puts on her best "outrage act" over the kidnapped girls.

====================================

THE COVER-UP BEGINS Hillary's whining before Congress: "what difference does it make" was the start of the cover-up. Who can forget Obama and Hillary's love fest on CBS' 60 Minutes?

Obomba hustled Hillary on 60 Minutes to gaze in adoration,
after Hill's arrogant dismissal of the Benghazi massacre before
Congress. I thought sure Obama was gonna give 'er a B/J on
broadcast tv....he was THAT grateful.

For sure CBS will give Hill ample airtime so that she emerges pure and virginal for 2016. CBS will kneel in obeisance and give her 2-3 segments to explain it all away.....the word "Republicans" is already forming on those forgetful lips.

Secy of State Hillary's incessant globe-trotting raises new questions about her motives....since it is well-known her global travels contributed nothing to US foreign policy.

Hefty corporate donations to the Clintons' tax-exempt foundations are nice...... but exchanging valuable US ntl security info for campaign contributions......that could really add up.

===========================================

And just who cleaned out the State Dept's bank accounts? News reports say the State Department announced it has "no idea" what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors..... a special “management alert” warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at State has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years....under Hillary's watch.

Now we know how Hillary always$ get$ tho$e wonderful poll number$----why $he's always at the top of the pre $idential pack (cackle).

Hillary Clinton Again Calls Benghazi ‘Biggest Regret’ as Secretary of State
wall street journal, 4/23/14 / FR Posted by Sub-Driver

BOSTON – Hillary Clinton reiterated Wednesday that her darkest time as secretary of state was the deadly 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Mrs. Clinton, in a speech to more than 3,000 people at a women’s leadership conference here, called the attack and loss of lives “very, very painful” and “certainly the biggest regret that I have as secretary of state.” She noted that she had taken responsibility for security at the diplomatic outpost, where Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans died, and had pledged to do everything she could to ensure a similar tragedy won’t happen again.

================================================

You call that dark? Wait'll we find out what Boko Haram did to all the little girls. It's gonna get darker, Hillary.

This Boko Haram thing and the time it took to go into Nigeria to save the Catholics in the north does seem racist, but that's just my opinion, not a measurable fact. The news also interviewed people who said they were waiting for the request of the Nigerian President. Huh? Did they wait for the requests of Assad, Mubarak, Khadafi, and Saddam?

I'm disgusted that the US has unleashed terrorists against stable populations while annihilating the rule of admittedly imperfect rulers who defended their people.

Is the failure to isolate Bao Haram a direct cause of the capture of those school girls? Did the Nigerian government the US supports do anything to protect them or get them released ASAP?

Who is running our foreign policy anyway?

Her husband's bizarre antics have attracted unwanted attention to her role. Plus, Sen. Grassley discovered that, while working for Hillary at the State Dept, she was also "consulting" with three clients.

Consequently, Huma became a little too prominent and was advised to recede from public attention.

This post is from a booklet by Frank Gaffney regarding the Muslim Brotherhood in the Obama Administration. [Everything in brackets is my own comment.]

Deeply problematic policies touching upon the Muslim Brotherhood which have been adopted at the State Department under Hillary Clinton.

2010:
Sec Clinton approves a visa for the Muslim Brotherhood chief theorist Tariq Ramadan.

“State Department officials begin ‘engaging’ with Muslim Brotherhood representatives shortly before the ‘Arab Spring’. [Isn’t that interesting ..?? I have to ask .. were we fomenting the Arab Spring ..??]

“2011:
State Department official trains Muslim Brotherhood operatives on how to win elections as part of a course in ‘democracy theories’ following the fall of Hosni Mubarak. [So, this tells us the Obama admin was helping Morsi, of the Muslim Brotherhood, get a foothold in Egypt.

“The State Department collaborates with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, a bloc of governments heavily influenced by the Muslim Brotherhood, in seeking to restrict American free-speech rights, in deference to Sharia prohibitions, against the critical examination of Islam.

“The State Department declares that the Obama administration would be ‘satisfied’ with the election of a Muslim Brotherhood-dominated government in Egypt.

“Sec Clinton announces establishment of formal relation with the Muslim Brotherhood.

“The State Department excludes Israel, the world’s leading target of terrorism, from its ‘Global Counterterrorism Forum’. At the forum’s kickoff, Sec Clinton decries various terrorist attacks and terrorist groups; but she does not mention Muslim Brotherhood franchise HAMAS or its attacks against Israel.

“Sec Clinton advances the Islamists’ international efforts to curb any expression that offends Islam by defining this not as a suppression of free speech, but merely an effort to curb ‘incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence.

“2012:
Sec Clinton waives congressional restrictions to transfer $1.5 billion to the Egyptian government after an Islamist-dominated parliament is installed on eve of the election of a Muslim Brotherhood president.

“The State Department and the administration host a contingent from Egypt’s newly elected parliament that includes not only Muslim Brotherhood members but a member of the Islamic Group (al-Gama’ at al Islamiyya), a jihadist organization headed by the Blind Sheikh (Omar Abdel Rahman), who is serving a life sentence for his leading role in a terrorist campaign against the United States in the early Nineties. Like Hamas, the Islamic Group is designated as a terrorist organization to which it is illegal to provide material support. [There was a rumor after Benghazi about a plan to kidnap Stevens, and trade him for Rahman. Hmmmmm ..?? Guess that plan didn’t work out; no wonder Hillary went into hiding.]

“Specifically, the State Department authorizes a visa for known terrorist Hani Nour Eldin to open negotiations on the release of the Blind Sheikh; DHS Sec Janet Napolitano informs Congress that the State Department should be expected to issue more such visas to individuals like Eldin who may have been terrorists but have now joined ‘the political process’ in their native lands.

“During a trip to Egypt in July, Sec Clinton pressures the ruling military junta to hand over power to the newly elected parliament, which is dominated by the Muslim Brotherhood, and to the newly elected president, Mohamed Morsi, who has long been a top Muslim Brotherhood official. Sec Clinton later meets with Morsi, who has also been extended the honor of an invitation to visit the White House in September [2012]. All this, despite the Muslim Brotherhood’s extensive record of hostility toward the United States, and despite the fact that Morsi, in his first public statement after being elected president, announced that one of his top priorities is to pressure the United States for the release of the Blind Sheikh.”
_______________________________________________________

[So, does anybody have any more questions on why Hillary would not designate Boko Haram a terrorist organization ..??]

And .. “The question that occurs - and that urgently requires thorough investigation - is this: have individuals and groups associated with an enterprise that has as its stated objective ‘destroying Western civilization from within’ been able to dramatically advance this agenda by conducting influence operations ‘inside the wire’ of the Obama Administration? Have they helped ‘tilt’ institutional views and policy itself toward the Muslim Brotherhood?”
