Hillary Clinton Blocked State Department from Naming Boko Haram as a Terrorist Organization

And now she fires out furious Tweets about how awful they are.

Reset.

At the time, the sentiment that was expressed by the administration was this was a local grievance and therefore not a threat to the United States or its interests,” he said. “They were saying al Qaeda was on the run and our argument was contrary to that. It has metastasized and it is actually in many ways a growing threat and this is a stark example of that.”

Obama had a plan for dealing with Boko Haram. And that plan was, get this, "social justice" and plenty of it.

The Obama administration has been critical of the military approach of the Jonathan government [Goodluck Jonathan, a Christian of the south, is President of Nigeria-- ace]... in dealing with the insurrection in the predominantly Muslim north.

Washington has advocated a wider economic and social-justice agenda to counter the dogmatic Islamists and increase national loyalty among disaffected northern Nigerians. Jonathan has mostly ignored the advice, [Johnnie Carson, who was assistant secretary of state for Africa until last year] and others said.

But that's okay. They'll hit Boko Haram where it really hurts: On social media directed primarily at giving Obama's bored do-nothing followers a new daytime soap opera to follow.


Every retweet is like a gleaming sword for social justice.

So retweet, Obama Soldiers. Retweet like the wind.

98 One of the most important books on human genetics in a long time. Big part is because Wade is the Genetics editor for the New York Times and can't be ignored as easily as others.

Steve Sailer has actually pointed out for years that Wade has been revealing the truth of the new human genetics data for years in the NYT. But nobody reads the science section so it had been kinda ignored.

The genetics data is overwhelming at this point. Race and ethnicity are real. Sticking our heads in the sand and ignoring the science doesn't help anybody. We can embrace the variety of humanity without having to ignorantly insist we are all exactly the same. Cause we aren't.

135 Ross Douthat comments on A Troublesome Inheritance here. So far it's being mostly ignored on the Left. Which is better than calling for it to be banned, which they probably would do if Wade wasn't one of their own - a member of the NYT media elite.

http://douthat.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/05/08/what-ive-been-reading/


1. Nicholas Wade, “A Troublesome Inheritance: Genes, Race and Human History.” The Times’ science correspondent’s argument for the reality and importance of race is both less and more controversial than I expected going in: Less because my colleague treads very carefully around the black-white-Asian I.Q. gap debate, more because he then embarks on some very wide-ranging and (as he acknowledges) speculative theorizing about genes, race, and cross-civilizational differences. I found the less-speculative first half of the book extremely persuasive, but await dissenting takes. Most of the reviews so far have come from the political right: Charles Murray raves, Robert VerBruggen has some anxieties; Anthony Daniels critiques. I would very much like to read a Ta-Nehisi Coates review.

157 "Every retweet is like a gleaming sword for social justice."

The way things are going with U.S. military procurement, tweets and hashtags are going to be pretty much the only weapons to hand in a few short years, so we'd better hone our social media skills to ultra super duper voodoo ninja levels.

It just came out this week that thanks to the inept program management at the Obama administration's Department of the Navy, costs are running totally out of control on the new _Zumwalt_ class destroyers.

They're buying three of the things, and the price tag has rocketed to $12B for the package.

Four billion dollars for a destroyer is absolutely insane.

$4B was the average procurement cost of the _Nimitz_ class nuclear aircraft carriers. And, by the way, the Navy is desperately short of carrier decks right now, and will be running shorter still in the coming years.

By next year, it's estimated that there will be a four month period during which there is no American flattop operating anywhere in Asia. There simply aren't enough ships in service to maintain that forward presence. So much for that vaunted "Pacific pivot" that Obama preens about.

Doesn't matter though- in the mind of a leftist, accomplishing things takes a distant backseat to letting people know how much you care about those things.

That allows them to burn as much fossil fuels, claim as many tax deductions, and make as much money as they want, so long as they publicly demonstrate how very deeply concerned they are about 'climate change' and 'income inequality'.

Regardless, success at either of these things meant she had to keep her head down and not get caught fucking up herself.

And Benghazi's a fuckup. A big one. The kind of fuckup that might hole a Presidential candidate below the waterline.

A diligent adversary might take advantage of this and try to sink her while the bulkhead doors are open.

Indeed, I feel a diligent adversary would be doing all they could to make sure the Boko Haram torpedo puts another hole in the SS Hillary Clinton.

Right now the question is whether the 'diligent adversary' is more interested in fragging its own.

They lie... and piss on our allies... and expect TALK to stop the bad guys...

They live in a Bubble... in DC... and think that is the world... when the DC rules do not apply to reality.

guns, large numbers of rocket propelled grenades (RPGs) and pick-up
trucks mounted with anti-aircraft guns, a sign the weapons flood from
the Libyan war that helped rebels seize parts of Mali last year has
reached Nigeria"

And these are the cheap, low-end, shitty weapons that were left behind in the Libyan armories after the smart first movers got there and cleaned out all of the really good stuff (such as the very dangerous Russian "Kornet" antitank missiles.).

Oh, and let's not forget the late Colonel's giant stash of Czech-made Semtex plastic explosive. Tons and tons of the stuff. Now all gone missing, and in the hands of... parties unknown but of no doubt malign intent.

For an American administration to have casually sat back and allowed the huge Libyan state arsenal to be looted by every bad actor in the Middle East was the most profoundly destabilizing decision imaginable.

Almost as though someone very high up in the US government were deliberately trying to foment war and chaos and radicalism.

Of course there is an argument. But instead of actually having a debate, we have hashtags. Clearly we can't take on every cause. We can't free tibet, because China is on the other side. Nigeria is not China. But we have a lot of oil interest there. This is a real war on women, and I mean war. Let's treat it as such.

252 I agree with everyone's assessment about how pathetic our #hashtag diplomacy and governance is.

That said, I think we're missing the point. The Obama administration's intended audience is not Russi, Boko Haram, or what have you. They are doing what they always do- targeting the lowest common denominator idiots of the American public, who coincidentally make up the majority. You know, the jackasses who thought Hope and Change were deep, meaningful policy that was going to save the world... and presently think that the only reason this "policy" (and socialism) hasn't succeeded yet is because it hasn't been fully implemented... and because of Republican Obstructionism.

The really sad news: they will succeed with their intended audience.

305 "So, what is the Islamist take on someone raised as a Muslim, even for a

The official line in Islam is that if you've recited the shahadah, the profession of faith, once in your life, that's it, you're a Muslim, you've accepted Islam. After that you can't renounce the faith. If you do, it's apostasy and the penalty for that is death. Specifically such.

Obama has recited the shahadah several times in his adult life, including doing so after supposedly converting to Christianity.

The fact that you don't see huge demonstrations in the Islamic world calling for Obama to suffer the penalty for apostasy is that they are all pretty much quietly convinced he's one of them still.

309 >>How about giving the Nigerian gov some drone and sat intel on Boko Haram? We don't have a national interest, but we can help in other ways.

Seems only fair as it appears we helped arm Boko Haram.

If the shit that went down in Libya was ever seriously investigated Obama and Hillary would be finished.

315 When a person doesn't have a concept of personal responsibility, is it any wonder they think retweeting can stop a campaign of terror highlighted by murder, kidnapping, and slavery? These are people with no concept of cause and effect except insofar as the effect is completely internal (i.e. feeling good about themselves). Any external effects are completely outside their sphere of awareness.

In short, they're invalids.

I did not. I will look for it. I am still trying to understand in what way this constitutes a valid response by anyone representing the United States with regards to the barbarity of the Bozo Camelfuckers.

Anytime I sit back and contemplate the series of idiotic decisions and diplomatic blunders made by this adminstration, foreign or domestic, I come to the same conclusion torquewrench does. They are doing this on purpose.

They are actively seeking to destabilize the world, forment domestic unrest, weaken economies, and pave the way for... something.

Being conspiratorial and a fervent Christian, *I* say it's the End Times maybe, but it might just be a bunch of retards thinking they're going to be starting some New World Order where everything will be peaceful and hunky-dory, with abortions for all and free love rampant.

All they need to do is find the right mix of ingredients for soma and they'll be set to rock and roll.

Allah commands, no girls should learn,
I heard the Captain cry.
Attack this place, rape all the girls,
Let no one leave alive.
Against Christians, against young girls,
How far can muslims fly?
A twisted path, our tortured course,
And no one left alive.

We fired the guns, and burned their huts,
And went from door to door.
Their mothers cried, we soldiers laughed,
Their tears, our laughs of joy!
Now many moons and many Junes,
Have passed since we took slaves.
A Slaving Wog, a muslim dog,
Resisted by twitter.

2. Send in special operators to locate Boko Haram bosses and bases.

3. Send special ops and detachments of Marines to take out groups of Boko Haram and desecrate their bodies (pig fat, etc.) and document.

4. GET OUT of Nigeria immediately.

5. Communicate with Boko Haram and related groups and share documentation of what happened to their buddies with news it will happen to them next offense they make.

Exactly. Boko Haram has long ties to AQIM and naming them a terrorist organization would have made it clear that far from being on the run al Qaeda is growing.

AQIM is famous for raising money in northern Africa by taking hostages and demanding ransom. Sound familiar?

Posted by: John McCain at May 08, 2014 02:22 PM (kFxpe)

478 #BringBackOurGirls.

Think about this sentiment, syntactically.

It is a command -- "Bring" is the verb in the sentence and it is in the "imperative mood," which is almost always thought to be second-person -- i.e. the "you" is left out:

"The imperative form is understood as being in the second person (the subject pronoun you is usually omitted, although it can be included for emphasis), with no explicit indication of singular or plural. First and third person imperatives are expressed periphrastically, using a construction with the imperative of the verb let:

Let us (Let's) have a drink! (equivalent to a first person plural imperative)" "

Thus, when the Obama administration says "Bring Back Our Girls," they are exhorting someone else to do the bringing back.

If Obama had meant to imply that he himself or the US as a group should bring back the girls, the sentence would have been "#Let'sBringBackOurGirls."

But no. He didn't write that.

So, then: Who, in this sentence, is being exhorted to bring back the girls?

Is Obama telling me, sitting here in my hovel, to go get on a plane to Nigeria and head out into the jungle with a machete and a bullwhip to rescue the girls?

I presume not.

Is he telling he average effete latte-sipping Pajama Boy Obama voter to go get on a plane to Nigeria and head out into the jungle with a machete and a bullwhip to rescue the girls?

Obviously that ain't gonna happen.

Is he exhorting Boko Haram to bring back the girls? Again, an absurd notion, considering that the purpose of the kidnapping was to infuriate us, and also considering that Boko Haram's very existence is based on hatred of the West's goals.

And we already ascertained that Obama isn't exhorting himself or the U.S. military to act, because he doesn't need to beg the U.S. Special Forces to act by sending out a hashtag: he is the Commander in Chief, after all.

So who is the audience for this exhortation?

No one, that's who. No one is actually being exhorted to do anything. As we just showed.

The very exercise is a hollow gesture. Its vacuity is a complete insult to our intelligence, and a guarantee that the girls will never be returned.

And everyone retweeting this is a participant in the charade, and becomes partly responsible for their non-return, because by retweeting you are communicating to the kidnappers that we have no ammunition, no plan, nothing but an impotent bleat.

The easiest way to do this is have the partition at ground level. Let the Christians have the portion above ground.

501 @486 - actually, colonialism backed by appropriate force would probably do the job just fine.

You would, however, need a reasonable sort of agreement as to who gets what so that we don't end up with a few more WW1s.

In all seriousness, part of me thinks the US should send some marines in to rescue these girls. But there could be unintended consequences. I wouldn't worry so much about those if they happened to be Americans (or allies). But that is why this is a serious issue that demands serious study and debate by serious people, not celebrity non sensicle hashtags from the WH.
