As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton refused to designate Boko Haram a terrorist organization despite the repeated urging of the FBI, CIA, and DOJ

bokoharamaThe 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. And now, lawmakers and former U.S. officials are saying that the decision may have hurt the government’s ability to confront the Nigerian group that abducted hundreds of innocent schoolgirls.


The Daily Beast  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 citied across the media and widely credited for raising awareness of their plight.

Looks like Hillary was influenced in her decision by the George Soros-funded radical left wing group


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.


A former senior U.S. official who was involved in the debate said, “The FBI, the CIA, and the Justice Department really wanted Boko Haram designated, they wanted the authorities that would provide to go after them, and they voiced that repeatedly to elected officials.”

In May 2012, then-Justice Department official Lisa Monaco (now at the White House) wrote to the State Department to urge Clinton to designate Boko Haram as a terrorist organization. The following month, Gen. Carter Ham, the chief of U.S. Africa Command, said that Boko Haram provided a “safe haven” for al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb and was likely sharing explosives and funds with the group. And yet, Hillary Clinton’s State Department still declined to place Boko Haram on its official terrorist roster.


Secretary of State John Kerry eventually added Boko Haram and its splinter group Ansaru to the list of foreign terrorist organizations in Nov. 2013, following a spate of church bombings and other acts that demonstrated the group’s escalating abilities to wreak havoc.

Hillary Clinton’s State Department’s refusal to designate Boko Haram as a terrorist organization prevented U.S. law enforcement agencies from fully addressing the growing Boko Haram threat in those crucial two years, multiple GOP lawmakers told The Daily Beast.


BNI has designated Boko Haram a terrorist organization many times: BOKO HARAM

  1. BH’s official name tells it all: “The Congregation of the People of Tradition for Proselytism and Jihad.”

    Nice. Plenty of jihad; dead bodies everywhere. And the proselytization? I guess that’s a new name for emulating mo – raping and impregnating underage girls.

    “This crime and other crimes carried out by such extremist organizations negate all human principles and moral values and stand in contradiction to the clear teachings of ‘the blessed Koran’ and the rightful examples set by the Prophet (Mohammad),” the OIC’s International Islamic Fiqh Academy said.

    “The secretariat of the academy, shocked [cue crocodile tears] by this ugly act, strongly demands the immediate release of these innocent girls without causing any harm to any of them,” said a statement posted on the website of the academy in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

    The OIC’s human rights commission [Don’t laugh, they have one!] condemned “the barbaric act of abducting the innocent schoolgirls” and the “misguided claim of Boko Haram” that selling them as slaves was Islamic.

    This was “a gross misrepresentation of Islam,” it said.”

    So, we have condemnation! 24 days after the event. Did Hillary prod them, or did they prod Hillary? What difference does it make now, anyway?

    Do you think they could extend that fatwa to include all the mass murders; I don’t see those mentioned. And they had numerous opportunities after earlier atrocities to denounce BH. Did they? Did I miss that?

    Any day now, we’ll see million man marches in a dozen mohammedan countries (57 to choose from) screaming “Not in OUR name!”
    Or maybe not.
    And that would be less than 1% of the dipshits.

    “The delayed designation of Boko Haram as a Foreign Terrorist Organization cost us two years of increased scrutiny of the group’s activities and leadership,” Rep. Patrick Meehan, R-Pa., said Thursday in a statement to “Boko Haram met the statutory requirements for the designation as early as 2011, but the State Department’s delay [driven by obuMBoy?] has left us with fewer resources and less intelligence on an Islamic terrorist group with ties to al-Qaeda that is clearly destabilizing the region.”

    “Timothy Furnish, an author and Islam scholar, told Fox News that the department probably was reluctant “to add another group that is clearly Islamic to the list.””

    Yeah, THAT makes sense:
    “I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

    Fiqh mo, and the camel he rode in on!

  2. Well, I never said that Hillary Clinton wasn’t an idiot. I’m getting to where I almost retch every time I see a photo of her.

  3. i heard on CNN that she was the democratic front runner in 2016. why? she’s a has been and never was.and never will be.
    definitely need new blood. in all of Congress the who lot of them need to be thrown out.

  4. As she refused to designate the savages as a terrorist organization, one can only assume that Hillary Clinton fully APPROVED of Boko Haram’s reign of terror. Now she’s trying to appear like a decent person PRETENDING to be concerned about the kidnapped girls who are suffering horribly.

    Remember this and Benghazi on election day. NEVER FORGET!

  5. hilary is a whore to power. She will say and do anything to stay in power. She supported, protected, her mysoginist, sexual predator bill c. by every effort to destroy every women who outed bill as a sexual predator. She supported her lover huma and the muslum demonhood who infiltrated the US. Note bilary tweeted her ‘support’ for the nigerian captured girls May 4th, almost 3 weeks after they were abducted. That is not support, that is jumping on the political band wagon for her own efforts to get attention. Abduction date April the 15. bilary’s attempt to be popular came May 4th. BNI was on this case over two weeks ahead of bilary. BNI was calling boko haram a terrorist group long ago. Shame on bilary for using this travesty against innocent girls for her own devious interests to get power.

  6. Hillary Clinton’s busy preparing for her presidential election. She doesn’t want anything like this to tar her records in the long run. Besides these schoolgirls are Christians which Democrats hate so much!

    She has ignored 4 loyal Americans, why do you think she would care about those 200+ more schoolgirls anyway?! #sarcasm

  7. Botox ain’t gonna do nothing for that face, a Chimpanzee attack could maybe be make a improvement that she deserves…

  8. ““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.”

    But what does Hilary have to say about the 10,000+ non-muslim girls abducted, tortured, raped, enslaved and pimped out by muslim gangs in the UK? Anything? Hello…are you there, Hilary? Oh – she seems to have gone…

  9. HAJI HILLARY is just one bitch on wheels. Lies at the drop of a hat, and could care less who she destroys. 2016 needs to be without a Clinton or a Bush. Time for new blood. The old blood has coagulated and the body of our Gov. has gone into Rigor.

    • Grotesque but accurate metaphor for the current state of the Union – and the fetid remains of the Bush-Clinton-Obama eras.

    • Remember BO has 135 IQ. He is deliberately doing what he is doing. Not out of stupidity but out of VINDICTIVENESS and VENGEANCE for an Ideology.

      • BNI I was equating to a probability for intelligence. When you are dealing with a Kenyan who has worked the system, along with his Shadow friends in the back ground feeding him the necessary monies and ego boosts. His probable intelligence has been used for cunning and lies, to DESTROY THIS NATION. Not create. I stand my ground he is smart. Just using it to disarm the Americans, and to aide and abet the world falling into the abyss. With Chaos as a means to empower the Shadows and the Progressive Left Wing Socialist Democrat Party. Then full out slavery for mankind.
        So if you were the EVIL one what would you do differently?

  10. She always has been a tremendous pile of self serving filth. From Arkansas, to “Don’t talk to the hired help.” to the present, she has done NOTHING to help the United States and much to harm it. Her “close relationship” with her squeeze Huma Abadin, the wife of pervert weenie waver Wiener, took her closer to The muslim Brotherhood, the force behind Boko Haram. This Kinda explains her reluctance to name them terrorists, doesn’t it ?

    • Don’t forget the protesting oversea against the USA by Billy boy. Treason but pardoned by a blanket pardon for all Vietnam deserters and protesters etc by Gerald Ford. Not to help them but he was hoping to heal this nation. This is the unintended consequence.
      We have to put up with HAJI HILLARY.

  11. They say that as age advances you get the face you deserve.

    Looking at ‘Skim Coat’ Clinton they could well be right.

  12. Hillary wants to avoid responsibility and thinks she can succeed with the help of her Leftist goosestepping movie star friends Libtard journalists who refuse to ask her tough questions.

  13. Republicans need to beat this Islamic terrorism like a drum. Unfortunately, most of the GOP is in bed with Islam, too.

  14. Malala Yusofzai says that the world must learn Islam:

    Boko Haram should learn Islam: Malala Yousafzai over girls’ abduction

    I think the Boko Haram has learnt Islam only too well. This Pashtun teenager has progressed from being a victim of Islam to being its most ardent defender.

    “They are actually misusing the name of Islam because they have forgotten that the word islam means ‘peace,’” Malala said.

    She does not even know that Islam actually means “submission.”

    • How depressing she’s become a deceiver for islam. Barbaric mass murderer and HUGE slave trader, Mohammad, founder of Islam:


      • I’m so disappointed. She and her family were brought to England at great expense to the taxpayers.

        The world doesn’t need any more Deceivers for Islam. We need truth tellers. Islam seeks our suffering, death, destruction and conquest. But Malala doesn’t want the world to know the truth. The massive numbers of muslims who seek our cruel enslavement are clearly delighted.

      • Linda,

        I knew this would happen. The Western media, particularly the BBC, was cultivating Malala as the new face of “moderate Islam” long before the shooting incident.

        Almost all her “remarkable quotes” were plagiarized and re-worded as genuinely original. Sounds like Islam itself, isn’t it.

  15. I think they should liquidate the source of terrorism: Mekka and Medina, the sheiks in Saudi-Arabia,Bahrain and Quatar!

  16. On a side note, are you sure that the ambassador was tortured as per that picture? I’ve read it was a fake, and that he was dragged to the hospital(other photo’s show that happening).

    Just wanting to confirm which story is true.

      • I don’t know it, I’ve seen many lies told before. I saw a video of him being rescued and another of his body afterwards and it didn’t look tortured. He looked like he died of smoke inhalation considering how black his mouth was. Then other accounts said he was tortured horribly by subsequent witnesses. Why would the US cover up the torture?

        • Annie, because it was done by Muslims. How can you ask that when you know the Obama regime tried and is still trying to cover up the whole event 2 years later?

  17. “And now, lawmakers and former U.S. officials are saying that the decision may have hurt the government’s ability to confront the Nigerian group”

    YA THINK???

    The assholes, running this government now, make Caligula look like a parochial school-girl!

  18. Hilary Clinton is the most evil politician ever to be in U S politics. She is possessed by the drivel himself. She will definitely arm Iran with Nuclear weapons and annul the first Amendment. She is a demon.

    • The most evil U.S. politician? Hmmm. Wouldn’t that dubious “honour” go to the muslim in chief?
      That said, the Clinton woman and her “Willie” were great buddies with the late Yasser Arafat(head) and other muslim “biggies”.
      Another thing which does indeed back up your claim is the amazing number of people who have disagreed with the Clintons, one way or another, and have, curiously, wound up DEAD. There’s a long list.

      Moral of the story: “don’t bad-mouth Hillary?!!
