The Group Clinton Refused To Label Terrorists Forces One Million Children From Their Schools

According to a sobering new report from the United Nations, Boko Haram, the world’s deadliest terrorist group, has “forced more than 1 million children out of school” and “more than 2,000 schools to close.” Additionally, “about 600 teachers have been killed during Boko Haram’s six-year insurgency.”

The new report comes after CBS reported just last week that 300 U.S. soldiers were deployed in West Africa to battle Boko Haram, the ISIS-aligned group terrorizing and killing thousands. Boko Haram has killed more than 20,000 people in six years and the American soldiers are being sent to Africa to provide “intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance assets” to better help local soldiers fighting Boko Haram.

For years Hillary Clinton’s State Department refused to classify Boko Haram as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO). Even when the Justice Department and Congress heavily lobbied for the FTO designation, Clinton refused.

Clinton’s refusal squandered two critical years in the fight because the U.S. government was “prevented… from fully addressing the growing Boko Haram threat.” This allowed Boko Haram to grow into the deadliest terrorist group in the world, killing thousands and displacing millions.

With the world on fire, America cannot afford to be led by someone with such poor judgment.
