Abuja, Nigeria -- U.S. military officials arrive in Nigeria on Friday to help in the search for hundreds of girls kidnapped by Islamist militants, the Pentagon said. The seven will join advisers supporting local efforts to find the girls abducted over three weeks ago, said U.S. Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby, who serves as Pentagon press secretary. There are no plans to send American combat troops, according to Kirby. "Our interagency team is hitting the ground in Nigeria now and they are going to be working ... with President Goodluck Jonathan´s government to do everything that we possibly can to return these girls,"

... the same way they did in Haiti and Banda Aceh, no doubt, with their favorite tools at hand: lobster, champagne, and five-star accommodations. Can´t debate an operation without the right accoutrements, you know.

OOPS. Major apologies! Way past bedtime. Read the headline as "U.N. officials..."

God bless our Navy and its remaining decent officers and men, and everything they do in true American spirit.

(Pentagon hacks, not so much.)

"The SEVEN are joining advisers who are supporting local efforts..." The headline, therefore, is just a bit of a stretch. Only seven people who came to talk to those who are talking to those who are "supporting" local efforts. Don´t you love liberals?

I readily admit not knowing much about Nigeria, but I wonder who made those signs. They´re in English and appear to be printed with some pretty sophisticated graphics. I may be too cynical but it seems this incident is being used to extract more "aid" from the US.

Since the beginning of this story I couldn´t help thinking...why not just go in and quietly "buy" them all? And then deal with the "problem" later. 300 x 12 - $3,600. Lots cheaper and probably much more effective.

But then, of course, there´s no sensationalism and the American people aren´t distracted from things like Benghazi.

No one in the Islamic world has done more to enable and encourage these wretched evil subhuman butchers than the man sitting in the Oval Office. He has hardened their resolve and given them freedom to commit these heinous acts against children because he is a weak ineffective leader who harbors an affinity with third world thugs. He is not the only one. Many nay, most world leaders on the stage today are different only because their sole motivation against doing what is right and needs to be done is because they are cowards. If the leaders of the West do not man up and deal with the cancer that is Islam, civilization is done. Violence will engulf the world and there will be no safe havens. Muslims have big plans and we are ignorant fools to ignore their stated goal to re-establish the caliphate. They are deadly serious. Hitler was evil, but these guys will take it to another level if not stopped. Count on it.

This group was active as far back as two years ago and Hillary Clinton refused to call them a terrorist group and Obama refused to overrule her. Now there are pictures of the Mooch holding a sign that says ´Bring back our girls´.

This is a UN problem, not ours, and in reality a diversion from Putin invading the whole world.

So act he did.

He sent seven people over to Nigeria to talk to people who are talking about it.

Looking at the Boka Haram video made me think they are more thugs and animals rather than religious fanatics.

Have a bad feeling if any of the girls are found, they have been sexually assaulted. Is it true the girls are Christians?

The Nigerian military will have a hard time finding Boka Haram since they shoot back. Don´t expect Boka Haram to engage the Nigerian military since they will shoot back too. Both sides will be working hard at avoiding the other.

Disagree about ignoring these terrorist groups. Didn´t we ignore AQ at first? Look where that got us. BH will go after us if the opportunity presents itself. So will alot of the terrorist groups. It would boost their ´reputation´.

Hope the United States is doing more than advising.

#14. for some reason the entire world seemed to ignore it as long as possible. No one is looking good.

Even media seemed to sleep. And feminist groups said little or nothing. They were probably thought Boko was a dress designer and the girls were headed for high fashion careers.

Once media began to make it a story the usual "leaders" rushed toward microphones and cameras. I understand Michelle has twittered her little heart out and tomorrow morning will demand the entire world act.

Hillarity is, of course, is more outraged than anyone else. Barrack wakes up dreaming of Nigerian school girls. Kerry must be greatly concerned although I haven´t heard that.

The problem now is that the girls may be scattered, sold off to many places. There may not be a camp to locate and raid

This is a horrible situation with the kidnapped girls, but here´s the deal with US involvement. It´s more important what happens off the coast of Nigeria than inland. Our largest foreign oil investment are the Nigerian offshore platforms (at least it was that way 3-4 years ago),which have been a focus of the US Navy in recent years. Keeping a buffer from the goons in the interior is likely a key task for the advisers.

Call in Atticus Finch. Only the scrupulously fair lawyer at the center of Harper Lee´s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, "To Kill a Mockingbird," could get at the truth in the latest conflict over the reclusive author´s privacy. The clash erupted again with Tuesday´s release of "The Mockingbird Next Door: Life with Harper Lee," by former Chicago Tribune reporter Marja Mills. To gather material for her intimate portrait, Mills rented a house in Monroeville, Ala., next door to the 88-year-old author and her older sister, Alice, and gradually got to know them.

The tens of thousands of Central Americans who have crossed America’s porous borders over the last year came on the assumption that once on U.S. soil they would never have to return to their countries. The instigators of this influx correctly viewed Obama’s de facto support for amnesty as a flashing green light. After all, how seriously were they going to take U.S. immigration law under a president who treated border security as a punch line to a joke? In 2011, Obama loudly mocked conservatives, the very ones who foresaw today’s mushrooming crisis, as malcontents crying wolf about a vulnerable border. “You

Democrats, who had all but conceded the general election before nominating college professor Jack Trammell at the last minute, now must decide whether to spend money in a district that leans heavily Republican.

McDaniel led voting in the June 3 primary but lost in a June 24 runoff with U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran for the Republican nomination. The matter could end up in court. Mississippi College Law professor Matt Steffey says that wouldn´t be the easy way out for McDaniel.

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Former South Carolina state treasurer Thomas Ravenel has presented signatures to get on the ballot as an independent running for Lindsey Graham´s U.S. Senate seat. Ravenel said he gave 17,000 signatures when he arrived Monday at the state Election Commission in Columbia. Election officials will have to verify the signatures. That process is expected to take about a month. Ravenel became state treasurer as a Republican in 2007. He had to resign months after his election when he was charged with buying cocaine for himself and his friends. Ravenel says he is running to reduce the size of government,

There’s a very simple solution to this Obamanation that’s occurring on the southern border. Enforce the law. By which I mean, deport them. Deport them all, not just the latest huddled masses yearning to live for free, forever, in Section 8 housing on EBT cards. No, we must deport all of the 12 or 20 or 30 million illegal aliens who are turning this country into a Third World flophouse. Can we do it? Yes, we can. A few years back, Marsha Coakley famously said, “Technically, it’s not illegal to be illegal in Massachusetts.” The ways things are going, it won’t be long before

Plenty of those glowing faces returning from vacation are the result of a doctor, not a few days off. Summer, especially in an election year, is prime time for nips, tucks and other cosmetic fine tuning. Not that anyone here admits it — in the magical world of politics, public officials and talking heads are genetically blessed with hair that never turns gray, baby-smooth foreheads and barely any wrinkles.

Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
