The Daily Beast’s Josh Rogin has written a new piece about Hillary Clinton’s refusal to brand Boko Haram as terrorists during her time at the State Department…
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.
Rogin appeared on FOX News this morning and was interviewed by Tucker Carlson. The Washington Free Beacon describes the segment here…
The Daily Beast’s Josh Rogin appeared on Fox News Saturday to discuss Hillary Clinton’s decision to not to add Boko Haram to the State Department’s official list of foreign terrorist organizations, despite the group’s increasingly violent behavior.
“It speaks to her claim that she’s at the forefront of protecting women, and girls in conflict. But it also speaks to her handling of international terrorism, which has been called into big question following her handling of the attack in Benghazi,” Rogin said.
“The criticism in Benghazi is that she didn’t call it a terrorist attack soon enough, that she blamed the video, and that she didn’t realize that al-Qaeda was metastasizing, growing into North Africa. Well, here is another example of al-Qaeda spreading into North Africa and the administration being asleep at the wheel. Their narrative was al-Qaeda is on the run, and apparently al-Qaeda is not on the run,” Rogin added.
