Ready for Hillary.
That’s the not-so-catchy Hillary for POTUS rallying cry.
Regarding the Benghazi atrocity, Hillary in full hysteric mode, screeched: “What difference does it make?”
Well, it makes no difference if you—like your husband—regard truth as an malleable. It makes a difference because the families of those slain deserve to know why their loved ones were murdered, and why Obama has not unleashed the dogs of war against the Muslim terrorists who carried out the Benghazi attack. It makes a difference because government is accountable for their decisions, actions, or lack of action.
It makes a difference because Hillary claims to be a staunch defender of women. And yet Boko Haram, like all Islamist mobs, are medieval savages whose theology demands the subjugation of women.
And yet Hillary’s State Department, for two long years, refused to designate these genocidal yearning Muslims as terrorists.
The State Department under Hillary Clinton fought hard against placing the al Qaeda-linked militant group Boko Haram on its official list of foreign terrorist organizations for two years. And now, lawmakers and former U.S. officials are saying that the decision may have hampered the American government’s ability to confront the Nigerian group that shocked the world by abducting hundreds of innocent girls.
In the past week, Clinton, who made protecting women and girls a key pillar of her tenure at the State Department, has been a vocal advocate for the 200 Nigerian girls kidnapped by Boko Haram, the loosely organized group of militants terrorizing northern Nigeria. Her May 4 tweet about the girls, using the hashtag #BringOurGirlsBack, was cited across the media and widely credited for raising awareness of their plight.
On Wednesday, Clinton said that the abduction of the girls by Boko Haram was “abominable, it’s criminal, it’s an act of terrorism and it really merits the fullest response possible, first and foremost from the government of Nigeria.” Clinton said that as Secretary of State she had numerous meetings with Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan and had urged the Nigerian government to do more on counterterrorism.
What Clinton didn’t mention was that her own State Department refused to place Boko Haram on the list of foreign terrorist organizations in 2011, after the group bombed the U.N. headquarters in Abuja. The refusal came despite the urging of the Justice Department, the FBI, the CIA, and over a dozen senators and congressmen.
