Three Years Ago This Week: A Symbol of a Failed Presidency | Terror Trends Bulletin: Can there be anything more symbolic of the Obama administration’s failure to combat the global Jihad than Boko Haram’s kidnapping of hundreds of Christian school girls in Nigeria three years ago? Especially given the fact that Boko Haram subsequently became an Islamic State affiliate.
That’s right, one side-effect of the Obama administration allowing the Islamic State to form and metastasize was the joining of forces with the organization that then-first lady Michelle Obama so infamously “attacked” with her hashtag counterterrorism program.
This week marks the third anniversary of the mass abduction…
The BringBackOurGirls (BBOG) group on Friday began its Global Week of Action at the Unity Fountain, Abuja.
There was a low turnout of its members at the opening session of the scheduled seven day of activities to mark three years of the abduction of the Chibok schoolgirls.
About 195 of the girls are still believed to be in the custody of the Boko Haram.
