On Friday, Amnesty International leveled a serious accusation: the Nigerian military knew about Boko Haram's recent attack in Chibok four hours before it took place.
On the evening of April 14, unnamed Nigerian officials and military officers told the human-rights organization, local vigilantes warned army commanders in northeastern Nigeria about armed men who had cruised into their village on motorbikes, pledging to attack a girls' boarding school. But the military didn't deploy troops to Chibok, "due to poor resources and a reported fear of engaging with the often better-equipped armed groups." We now know all too well what happened next: A convoy of Boko Haram fighters overwhelmed the few Nigerian soldiers and police in town, spiriting away more than 200 girls from the Government Girls Secondary School. Their whereabouts remain unclear.
This is not the first time that international observers, including Amnesty, have challenged the Nigerian military's account of a terrorist attack. In March, for instance, Boko Haram gunmen launched an attack in Maiduguri, the capital of Nigeria's northeastern Borno state, and freed detainees held at the Giwa Barracks there. Shortly after the detainees were freed, the Nigerian military counterattacked and the attackers fled. Then the real killing began.
"The former detainees were in a classroom. They started screaming 'we are not Boko Haram. We are detainees!'" a witness told Amnesty at the time. "My neighbours and I saw the soldiers take the men to a place called 'no mans land,' behind the University of Maiduguri. We watched as the soldiers opened fire killing all 56. . .

Now that some of the truth about the Benghazi cover-up is finally coming to light, it has been verified: The White House was up to its neck in the subterfuge surrounding the cover-up from the start.
Blaming an online video on the preplanned jihadist assault on Benghazi is akin to blaming Word War II on Hitlers third-grade teacher who was mean to him. Its ludicrous.
The email uncovered from Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes issued days after the attack specifically states as its purpose: To underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy. President Obama was in the midst of a re-election campaign and the attack in Benghazi did not jive with the chant heard over and over again at the Democrat National Convention that Bin Laden is dead and al-Qaida is on the run.
Mrs. Clinton knew the failure to provide security at Benghazi could ultimately be laid at her feet as the Secretary of State and she didnt want that failure to hurt her run for the presidency in 2016. And so the narrative about the video was contrived within the White House to protect the president and Mrs. Clinton, and it was foisted on the American people for weeks afterward.
Its clear from this cover up that Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton put themselves once again above the good of the nation. They deemed their own vested interest to be more important than the truth, even in the face of the deaths of four Americans. I doubt by this time that anyone is surprised.
I just wonder how much bloodletting there would have been from the sleepy media regarding this scandal if the Secretary of State had been Sarah Palin?
I don't know a lot of details about this story, but I do keep wondering how in any nation hundreds of schoolgirls could be abducted from a school, then transported by some means to another location, and a few dozen escape during the process, but no one seems to know where the remaining hostages are being held.
It seems it would be almost impossible for all this to happen and so little be known about the present whereabouts of the kidnappers and hostages.
The Boko Haram story gives an embattled presidency opportunities to distract and appear Presidential and caring.
No proof, but there has been such a tidal wave of lying from this Prez that my first instinct is that his BUDDIES kidnapped those girls.
Maybe they’ll be gloriously rescued by US forces RIGHT BEFORE the mid-term elections..?
SOUNDS crazy today, but after five months THEN WHAT..?

Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping!
To get onto The Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping List you must threaten to report me to the Mods if I don't add you to the list...
If this administration wanted to make a big deal out of black on black violence it sure doesn't need to go all the way to Nigeria. There's plenty in DC or for that matter in the President's own back yard of south Chicago.
The O admin wants the Boko to succeed in over throwing the Nigerian regime. Boko is radical mussie through and through. Good old Barry likes it when the missies get more power
That is the theme of the last five years, over and over and over again.
Skew the balance to position certain people to pick up the pieces, then tip things over.
So would I.
