Hillary Clinton Covered Up Boko Haram’s Acts of Terror

We already knew that the State Department fought to prevent the Al Qaeda linked terrorist group Boko Haram from earning its FTO designation.

But Senator Vitter now casts some light on how far the State Department and Hillary were willing to go so that Boko Haram would not be named a terrorist group and so that the State Department could keep pressuring Nigeria to appease the Islamic terrorist group.

U.S. Sen. David Vitter (R-La.), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, sent a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry demanding answers on why the State Department, under the leadership of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, misled Congress on the terrorist threat posed by Boko Haram, a terrorist organization based in Nigeria.

“The State Department ignored clear evidence that Boko Haram posed a serious terrorist threat for years – costing hundreds of lives. And not only did Secretary Clinton ignore outside intelligence from the FBI and Defense Department, but she ignored the actual data State Department was supposed to use for its own reports to Congress. It really looks to me like she deliberately misled Congress and the American people,” Vitter said. “I want to know why it took Hillary Clinton and the State Department so long to actually acknowledge this threat – and what they were hiding in the process.”

Here’s an important excerpt from the Senator’s letter.

As part of its annual assessments on foreign country terrorism, the State Department is required to include statistical information supported by data. However, a review of the information from that time presents different facts. In its capacity as the U.S. government’s authoritative, central, and shared knowledge bank on international terrorism the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) provided the State Department with the statistical information necessary to determine that Boko Haram was engaged in terrorist activity. However, in completing the official annual CRT provided to Congress the State Department chose not to include this information.

The Secretary of State is required to include within its CRT to Congress, “which acts of international terrorism occurred which were, in the opinion of the Secretary, of major significance.”  However, in multiple cases, where the NCTC clearly labeled and claimed that Boko Haram was engaged in terrorist activity against foreign nations, Secretary Clinton’s office in their own report minimized the attacks and separated the issue from Boko Haram.

How big of a difference was this? Senator Vitter provides a comparison.

The NCTC 2012 Annex of Statistical Information, stated that Africa “experienced 978 attacks in 2011, an 11.5 percent increase over 2010, and attributable that in large part to the more aggressive attack tempo of the Nigeria-based terrorist group Boko Haram”.

This document adds further citations that Boko Haram conducted an attack against Western targets in “the largest terrorist attack in the country to date.”

However, the State Department Coordinator for Counterterrorism’s report covering that same year (2011) only chose to include loose evidence stating, “[The] conflict in Nigeria continued throughout the northern part of the country with hundreds of casualties as indigenous terrorist attacks increased. The Nigerian extremist group, Boko Haram, claimed responsibility for some of these attacks.

It appears that this variation in wording fails to meet the legal requirements based on information it received, and inserts a higher degree of doubt about whether Boko Haram is directly engaged in terrorist activity. The modification clearly downplays “978 attacks” and ignores the NCTC labeling Boko Haram as a “terrorist group,” instead suggesting that there may be a loose connection.

The State Department was deliberately obstructing and covering up information that showed what Boko Haram was up to. State Department functionaries like Johnnie Carson distracted and diverted from the subject whenever they were asked about it. And at the top was Hillary, who claimed to be all about the empowerment of girls, but was protecting a terrorist group that would kidnap them.

    I am so depressed thinking about how libiots will vote for her and we will have 8 more years of Obamantion – I tried so hard to convince people about Obummer before he was elected then my fellow Americans, high on hope-a-dope lies and omissions, still voted for the Manchurian TWICE!!!! and I see they have already steeled themselves away from even hearing a smidgen of truth about HRC and the hideous Dems–

    In this USA they will go for it again- most disappointing to me is the lack of ALARM in USA Jews, unable to see what these people are TRULY about

    It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere. -Voltaire, philosopher and writer (1694-1778)

      You’re right about USA Jews; they are (generally speaking) liberal MORONS!

      You’d think that history would have taught us something (I am Jewish) but sadly, most Jews are so stupid politically, a rock contains more common sense.

      Jews have always had a bleeding heart for the underdog and STUPIDLY voted for Obama because he is BLAAACK.

      And they are, despite his treason and treachery, still supporting him. And despite his HATRED of Israel and Jews, still they come…

      Don’t ask me, I’m a tiny part of that tiny minority of imbeciles. Me? Pretty smart, since I’ve got their number.

        You’d think that history would have taught us something (I am Jewish) me too

          Me three. The good news is the liberals don’t breed and the Orthodox are in a big way. The demographics are changing dramatically. At least I hope so.

      Of course, Hemingway was a communist, and since the communist regimes of the 20th Century were really more fascist than anything, the irony is on him.

        not sure,but I think his little trip to SPAIN convinced him, disillusioned him, he SAW it. He was forced to look into that dark evil first hand and why he made this statement.

        I took it to mean he was saying : watch out these commies are really fascists

        Cubans found out, Chinese found out, Soviets saw through it, yet still hanging on to it, Obama selling same, to the same useful idiots in USA

  • Ban Liberals

    And this treacherous cow wants to be president?

  • truebearing

    It’s not that Hillary doesn’t care about the relentless rapes and murders committed by the Boko Haram, it’s just that they aren’t important enough to disrupt her schemes and agenda. She can feel their pain, though. And she knows what it’s like to only have two mansions.

    I remember being mystified from 2009 through 2011 when State chose NOT to designate Boko Haram a terrorist group. Indiscriminate attacks were frequent and bloody. Hell, even the media was in on the cover-up. Local stringers for AP and Reuters often attributed the violence to “grazing rights” between tribesmen. The religious dimension was completely downplayed.

    More Equal rights for women eh! The Left doesn’t care about real women’s rights and equality! Cover up the actions of Boko Haram…Look at the way Mrs. Clinton’s ideologies are distorted.
