Clinton’s Boko Haram Failure One Year Later
One year ago today, Boko Haram kidnapped 200 schoolgirls in Nigeria. During Hillary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State, the State Department fought against branding Boko Haram as a terrorist organization restricting the tools the U.S. had to fight against them. In 2012, her State Department even lobbied congress to stop legislation that would require her to do so.
Since the kidnapping, Boko Haram has pledged allegiance to the Islamic State (IS) and is responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocent citizens, including an estimated 2,000 people in one attack.
