The administration’s handling of Boko Haram is key to understanding how liberal administrations will handle all terrorist threats as al-Qaeda grows throughout the world, smothering freedom and Christianity as it makes its way towards its ultimate goal of destroying their greatest enemy, the bastion of liberty – the United States of America.
A naive and impassive foreign policy that always defaults to appeasement and diplomacy in the face of unremitting evil now consumes every sector of our government. Our foreign policy focuses on the idealistic hope that countries will heal themselves from within if we show them the way. In order to see our future under a President Hillary Clinton, one only has to look at her record, Mr. Obama’s record, and the other people she aligns herself with. Hillary Clinton is Barack Obama is John Kerry. There is little difference.
On November 13, 2013, the State Department finally declared Boko Haram a terrorist organization. It is an affiliate of al Qaeda and they have been slaughtering thousands since 2009.
Hillary Clinton resisted the terrorist designation for Boko Haram because she thought such a move could cause more harm than good by enhancing the group’s standing and making U.S. and Western interests a target of Boko Haram attacks. She chose instead to ignore it. Perhaps it would go away.
In fact, that weak approach has caused them to become more powerful.
