Don´t forget that Boko Haram
targets boys as well as girls

BBC News [UK], by Colin Freeman

Picture the following scene, if you will, horrible though it is. A group of young schoolboys are asleep in their dormitory when the doors are quietly locked and the building set alight. Most are burned alive, while those who manage to escape have their throats slit by the Islamic extremists waiting outside. What´s more, it´s the third such attack in eight months. Dreadful stuff, eh? The world should do something about it. Raise awareness. Another version of the BringBackOurGirls campaign for the Nigerian schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram, perhaps. Only in this case, of course, there are no boys to

Comments:
So you wonder why none of the hashtaggers who force attention on the kidnapped girls didn´t spare a single public thought for the burned and butchered boys.

Is it perhaps because the emphasis of the west´s lefties is on getting a woman elected president of the United States? Other countries have already had female heads of state so it´s time for the US to join the club, eh?

Can´t believe just how horribly cynical I´ve become--and how horribly politicized the world has become. Obviously, there´s a connection.

Hilary Clinton´s State is responsible for coddling these Islamist extremists.
Hilary Clinton´s State is responsible for the AVOIDABLE murders of Amb Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Ty Woods.
Hilary´s State with MB Agent Huma Abedin helped unleash Islamic Extremists throughout Africa starting in Egypt.
Remember Hilary cackling when Qaddaffi was butchered in street?
Her work.
She can never be allowed as CIC to be POTUS.
Evil woman.

Hillary and Obama coddle and overlook Islamic Terrorists either because they admire them or fear them...either way they elevate the scum of the earth to respectable status...from Egypt to Libya to Syria to Nigeria to Iran...they rarely see call evil what it is...EVIL

In many ways,Islam is as big a fraud as liberalism. Islam issupposed to be anti-gay but they love sodomizing young boys.So they have a special market for them.They also supposed to hate porn but are some of the biggest porn consumers in the world,especially Pakistan.

The left makes a big deal out of woman brutality in this country but couldn´t care less about it around the world.Bush and his wife were big crusaders for women in Afghanistan but Obama has nothing to say about women or Christians being brutalized around the world.The left envy´s Islam iron fisted ways of doing things.They´re kindred spirits.

Obama administration officials told a gathering of all 100 U.S. Senators on Wednesday that they were kept in the dark about Saturday´s prisoner swap because the Taliban warned that they would kill Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl if any information about the plan leaked to the public. But Georgia Sen. Saxby Chambliss, the senior Republican member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, says he and California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, his Democratic counterpart on the committee, were told ´months and months´ in advance when the Obama administration was planning to kill Osama bin Laden. ´It was like they didn´t trust Dianne and me,´ Chambliss said

Australia Drops the Word ´Occupied´

The Australian government will no longer refer to Eastern Jerusalem as "occupied", the Attorney General said in a statement on Thursday. The Times of Israel reports that Attorney General George Brandis said that Foreign Minister Julie Bishop believes that using the word "occupied" is judgemental and hinders dialogue over the contested area. Speaking to the Australian Senate, Brandis said: “The description of East Jerusalem as ‘occupied’ East Jerusalem is a term freighted with pejorative implications which is neither appropriate nor useful. “It should not and will not be the practice of the Australian government to describe areas of negotiation in such judgmental

Barack Obama has urged Scotland to reject independence, saying the United Kingdom is better off remaining together. Britain works “pretty well” as a “united” nation, the US President said, in major intervention in the debate over the future of Scotland. The President reiterated his call for Britain to remain in the European Union. The commemoration of D-Day shows Europe depends on Britain for its prosperity, and the UK will lose out if it excluded, the President said. The British people will make the “right decision” in an in-out referendum, he said. Alex Salmond said Scotland wanted its independence like the

President Barack Obama doubled down Thursday on his handling of the Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl prisoner swap, saying he makes ´no apologies´ for releasing five Taliban terrorists in exchange for the safe return of an accused U.S. Army deserter. ´I make absolutely no apologies for making sure we get back a young man to his parents,´ he said in Brussels during a joint press conference with British Prime Minister David Cameron, ´and that the American people understand that this is somebody’s child and that we don’t condition whether or not we make the effort to try to get them back.´

Iran´s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has taunted President Barack Obama, claiming that the U.S. no longer has the guts for battle. Speaking at an event commemorating the 25th anniversary of the death of his predecessor, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khamenei, the 74-year-old Shiite Muslim cleric proclaimed that ´military attack is not a priority for Americans now.´ He stood on a podium amid banners boasting ´America Cannot Do a Damn Thing´ as he reacted to a speech President Obama gave to West Point last week. ´Since World War II, some of our most costly mistakes came not from our restraint, but from our willingness

The Taliban was ´thrilled´ when Bowe Bergdahl´s father ´claimed the White House for Islam´ by thanking Allah in his press conference with President Obama, it has been claimed. The father of the freed soldier - who former colleagues claim was a deserter - said he was speaking Arabic and Pashto because his son´s English was poor after five years in captivity. But commentators accused him of giving the Taliban a priceless propaganda tool, with one saying extremist sources in Pakistan were delighted. Mr Bergdahl spoke at the White House after 28-year-old Bowe--the only American prisoner of war in Afghanistan--was freed in exchange

Of course it is a challenge for any modern national leader, to stand tomorrow on the beaches of Normandy and recall the greatest days and martial triumphs of World War II. The comparison is obvious and embarrassing, between the giants and the pygmies: Churchill and Cameron, Hollande and de Gaulle, above all Franklin Roosevelt and Barack Obama. In 2014, at least Britain’s prime minister and France’s president must bear responsibility only for their own countries. But the President of the United States is the standard-bearer for the global cause of freedom, commander-in-chief of the principal might of the forces of

U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham appears poised to win Tuesday´s GOP primary without a runoff, a Clemson University Palmetto Poll of state voters suggests. With only days left in the race, a statewide survey of 400 Republicans shows Graham has the support of 49 percent of those polled, putting him on the cusp of reaching the 50 percent-plus-one mark he needs to win the nomination outright, without a runoff. While a significant 35 percent of voters remain undecided, the results suggest that if Graham can move just a small portion of the "up-for-grab" vote his way, he can claim the Republican nomination Tuesday

In the video above, you can watch the exchange of Sgt Bowe Bergdahl from his Taliban captors to the US military. As I watched, I realised that America and the Taliban could perceive the video in very different ways… The American perspective: [Snip] The American desire for a peaceful exchange is always apparent. As the two parties come together, watch as the US soldier on the left raises his right hand over his heart and then does the same to the Taliban fighter nearest to him. For Afghans, this is a mark of deep sincerity and respect.

John Kerry has been caught on camera closing his eyes for a possible power nap during a press conference with European leaders yesterday. The Secretary of State was in Warsaw on Tuesday and was seated next to National Security Advisor Susan Rice as they listened to Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski speak at a news conference alongside President Obama at Belweder Palace. News cameras captured the moment when Kerry closed his eyes, and stayed on him as they remained closed. Kerry closed his eyes for about six seconds before reopening them and jolting up quite quickly.

A public welcome home celebration featuring Grammy-winning singer Carole King in honor of freed POW Bowe Bergdahl in the tiny town of Hailey, Idaho was abruptly cancelled today. The official reason given was a concern for public safety, but MailOnline has learned that it was not the only reason the party was scrubbed. Today´s decision follows a row that erupted in Hailey between Mayor Fritz Haemmerle and US Army Platoon Commander Jonathan Kennedy, who lives in Hailey. And Kennedy wasn´t the only towns person who voiced disapproval of a celebration for the soldier under fire. Mayor Haemmerle wanted to throw a welcome

The seeds of what blossomed grotesquely in the Rose Garden last weekend — a celebration of the release of five senior Taliban military leaders in exchange for a U.S. sergeant purported to be a deserter — were sown a long time ago: on the second and third days of President Obama’s first term, to be precise. On his second day in office, the president signed an executive order directing that the Guantanamo Bay detention facility be closed. You can watch the cringe-inducing video of the signing ceremony on YouTube, as the president stumbles through a reading of the order to

The chairman of the Democratic National Committee accused Republicans of “grasping at straws” in their criticism of the Bowe Bergdahl case and “nitpicking” over the number of Taliban exchanged for his release. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) accused GOP senators, specifically Susan Collins (R-Maine), of saying “we should leave a member of our armed forces who was in the midst of an armed conflict, regardless of the circumstances that he will likely be tried for and considered innocent until proven guilty later.” “That she would leave a soldier in an armed conflict behind when we had intelligence from everything that I understand

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Wednesday that he didn’t know of any troops who had died in the search for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, amid a growing controversy over whether the former Taliban prisoner deserted his unit. “I do not know of specific circumstances or details of U.S. solders dying as a result of efforts to find and rescue Sgt. Bergdahl," Hagel said at a press conference in Brussels, Belgium, where he met with NATO defense ministers, Reuters reported. Bergdahl’s release sparked controversy after the Obama administration’s decision to swap him for five Taliban commanders being held in the prison at

One of the most striking elements of the Bowe Bergdahl affair is word that top Army officers were so anxious to keep the matter a secret that they directed Bergdahl´s fellow soldiers to sign a pledge of silence about his 2009 decision to walk away from duty in Afghanistan. "Many of Bergdahl´s fellow troops…signed nondisclosure agreements agreeing to never share any information about Bergdahl´s disappearance and the efforts to recapture him," wrote CNN´s Jake Tapper, who first reported the agreements last Sunday. Now, with Bergdahl back in U.S. hands, many of those former soldiers are ignoring the agreement they signed. They

Among the most tantalizing mysteries surrounding Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s departure from his U.S. military base in 2009 is this: Was he trying to find the Taliban? Or did he simply wander away and get captured? Politicians and members of the military have criticized the Obama administration’s decision to swap five jailed Taliban leaders for Bergdahl, saying the soldier may have deserted. Until now, few details have emerged about the circumstances of Bergdahl’s disappearance from his base. But The Washington Post has reached Afghan villagers who spotted Bergdahl shortly after he slipped away from his base. To them, it’s clear something was

BRUSSELS— President Barack Obama said Thursday he "absolutely makes no apologies" for seeking the release of Sgt.

When it comes to getting soldiers back from war, Obama said, "We don´t condition whether we make the effort to get them back."

Bill Clinton´s critics in Arkansas used to say that he would rather climb a tree and tell a lie than stand on the ground and tell the truth. In other words, Clinton would lie when the truth would do -- and when telling the truth would be easier. The saying might apply to the Obama administration´s public statements about Bowe Bergdahl, the U.S. soldier released from captivity in Afghanistan in a trade for five Taliban commanders held at Guantanamo Bay. There is substantial evidence to suggest that Bergdahl abandoned his post in 2009 -- he went AWOL, he deserted, whatever

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is improving daily at the military hospital in Germany where he is recovering, and psychologists there are helping him “regain control of his emotions,” a Pentagon spokesman said Thursday. Bergdahl’s medical condition was described as “stable and improving daily.” The spokesman, Col. Steve Warren, would not elaborate on the psychologists’ work. Obama administration officials have said that Bergdahl’s health was deteriorating rapidly, forcing them to move quickly in making a deal with the Taliban to secure his release after five years in captivity.
