Hillary fought to keep Boko Haram off terror list

HILLARY FOUGHT TO KEEP BOKO HARAM OFF TERROR LIST

Hillary Clinton's public outrage at the abduction of hundreds of schoolgirls by a Islamist Nigerian rebel group ignores the role the 2016 Democratic frontrunner had in preventing the group from being designated as a terrorist organization. From The Daily Beast: "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 hurt the American government's ability to confront the Nigerian group that shocked the world by abducting hundreds of innocent girls....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 UN headquarters in Abuja. The refusal came despite the urging of the Justice Department, the FBI, the CIA, and over a dozen Senators and Congressmen."

He did it - Clinton's successor, Secretary of State John Kerry designated Boko Haram as a terrorist organization in November, 2013.

Oh yeah, she'd make a great President, no doubt.
She's twice the man Obama is.
Twice as ugly.
And twice as dumb.

The woman was not qualified for any position she has held, Secretary of State, U.S Senator. Does she not realize this?
