This one hasn’t gotten a whole lot of play yet, but it’s fairly revealing. Obviously, the big news on Capitol Hill yesterday was the hearing on the Veterans Affairs scandal with General Shinseki. But around that same time, the Senate Subcommittee on African Affairs was also holding a hearing on Boko Haram.
Ever since news broke of Boko Haram’s kidnapping of those 300+ Nigerian schoolgirls several weeks ago, conservatives have been asking why the State Department under the leadership of Hillary Clinton refused to classify Boko Haram as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO). As America Rising points out, if Hillary had actually listened to the CIA, FBI or even the Justice Department at that time, she’d probably have made that designation. But she didn’t. Bad luck? Or bad judgment?
And so, the big question: Did Hillary Rodham Clinton make a mistake? Answer: YES. Deputy Secretary of State for African Affairs Robert Jackson made that admission to none other than Marco Rubio, who just might end up being Hillary’s 2016 presidential opponent.
1 point awarded to Marco…but he’d better watch his back now. I hear Bubba’s in defensive mode this week.
