Hillary “Asleep at the Wheel” on Boko Haram and Benghazi

Hillary “Asleep at the Wheel” on Boko Haram and Benghazi

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.

Another victory for the policy of appeasement.

Hillary looks like she was waiting up for that 3 AM call and fell asleep just when it came in.

One voter here does not recognize sarcasm.

Admittedly, given the nature of the Left, it is hard to do so. These folks can’t be parodied.

To be fair to a person who doesn’t normally deserve it, if you look further down in the article there is in fact justification for her actions regarding the group.

Huma probably told her they were good Muslim boys who wouldn’t a fly.

To a woman who left many corpses behind her, who is OK with late term abortion, who received the Margaret Sanger award from Planned Parenthood, and who enabled and protected her rapist philandering husband, the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi isn’t a big deal and the murdering, raping Boko Haram aren’t such bad people.

So it sounds like the Boko Haram guards may not have been asleep at the wheel (so to speak) when those Muslim girls made their heroic escapes. They may have just let the girls go, and the girls naturally wanted to make it sound better.

While escapes are theoretically possible, eh, well, if you control the road access points, and women in sandals without even a machete would otherwise have to pass through jungle, depending on where they were held… but oh well, it’s not like I wish the Muslim girls ill. I guess this time Boko Haram was more discriminating.

Boko Haram is a black Islamic jihadist organization. Since almost all American blacks can’t see past skin color, it would not be of benefit to Hitlery’s electoral aspirations to denigrate this group, what with her being married to the FIRST black president and all.

In fairness to Hillary, she was reported to have been on a 3 month drunk at the time. She was in rehab rather than at the Democratic convention which we hope was a transformation for her. Everyone has problems.

Only reason their making a big deal about these girls is that it appeals to women which is the core of the Democratic party.
