Why Did Hillary/Obama/Bush Block Boko Haram From Terrorist List? Same Reason All 3 Blocked Muslim Brohood, Other Grps – To Appease Muslims

By Debbie Schlussel

The Right is rightly upset about news that Hillary Clinton blocked Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram from the State Department terrorist list (until this past December), but Barack Obama is President, so he shares the blame. Yet, Boko Haram was founded and known to the world since 2002. And guess who declined to add the group to the State Department terrorist list from 2002 through the end of 2008? That’s right. George W. Bush. Why isn’t the Right calling him on this, too? Did he miss that Boko Haram bombed churches, buses, schools,police stations etc. and murdered over 10,000 people (including kidnapped Westerners) since the beginning?




ALL of Them Blocked Boko Haram (& Muslim Brohood & IAP, Etc.) From State Dept Terrorist List
As was well known to the Bush Administration, Boko Haram was committing terrorist acts since its founding, not long after 9/11. It’s well known that it’s an offshoot of Al-Qaeda, but never any terror designation. Not by Bush and not by Obama/Hillary. Why all the fuss now? You think the kidnapping of the nearly 300 girls is the group’s first terrorist act? Not even close. It’s been engaged in deadly terrorist acts since 2002.

And here’s another tip, since we’re talking about Islamic terrorist groups. Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and many other countries have added the Muslim Brotherhood to their list of terrorist groups. Obama refuses to add the group to the State Department Terrorist List, and the right attacks him for this, as they should. But guess who refused steadfastly, even after 9/11 attacks to add the Muslim Brotherhood to the list, even though the group birthed HAMAS and Al-Qaeda? That’s right. George W. Bush. He deserves as much of the blame as Obama for this and probably more, since he ran as the “counter-terrorism Prez,” but Obama ran as the pan-Muslim lefty. And it’s harder to remove a group from the list once it’s there.

And there are more hardened Islamic terrorist groups and their financiers that should have been added to the State Department Terrorist list but never were, even though FBI counterterrorism agents–several of them my friends–urged the Bush Administration to do so. For example, the Islamic Association for Palestine was well known to be a financial conduit for HAMAS and was founded by HAMAS’ deported political director, Moussa Abu Marzook. Still, despite FBI agents’ protests to the contrary, the Bushies refused to outlaw “charitable contributions” to IAP by adding it to the State Department Terrorist List, even though the Bush people knew that the money went directly to HAMAS.

And, so, while Hillary Clinton’s phony concern for the Nigerian girls kidnapped by Boko Haram deserves to be called out, the partisans on the right who refused to call out Bush for this, deserve to be called out, too. One of the publications whining about Hillary blocking Boko Haram from the State Department Terrorist List is National Review Online. But this is the same publication that removed an article from its site that I wrote asking why the Bush Administration continued to employ Suhail Khan, whose father brought Al-Qaeda chief Ayman Al-Zawahiri into the United States and raised money for the terrorist group at his mosque. National Review Editor Rich Lowry told me he pulled the article–even though he admitted it was 100% true–because he said the Bush White House and Khan requested it. Lowry also told me he would ban me for life from National Review at Khan’s request. Yes, this is the same magazine now calling Hillary Clinton out for lacking the balls it also lacks in spades. They expect self-declared lefties to be tough on Islamic terrorism when they themselves are not (so long as an “R” follows the name of those soft on Islamic terrorism).

So, you ask, why did Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama block Boko Haram from the State Department Terrorist List? The same reason Bush did. The same reason Clinton and Obama and Bush blocked the Muslim Brotherhood and Islamic Association for Palestine from the list. To appease Muslims. To appease Islam.

And to basically say it without actually saying it: screw you.

They really don’t care about defeating Islamic terrorism. It’s all theater. If they cared, all of these groups would be on the list. And Bush or Obama would have at some time in the last 13 years shut down HAMAS’ Islamic Association for Palestine which continues to operate in the Chicago area untouched.

Yes, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are hypocrites on this issue. But they aren’t the only ones, and there are plenty of the same on the other side of the aisle.

Well, I guess they all knew that the Jewish residents in the West Bank are the real terrorists, and the real parties responsible for preventing peace in the Mideast.

The West Bank settlers are making it difficult for peace-loving groups like Hamas and the PLO to negotiate with them.

I realized I had been snookered by Bush when he tried to give control of our port security to Dubai. Hell he snookered me on a lot of things I now regret. Back then I trusted the republican brand. Compared to Gore and Lurch Kerry it was no contest though. I am not as naive as I once was. The repugs are not much better than the dems. We are screwed.

It seems some here are slowly getting it. It’s not a Left thing. It’s not a Right thing. It is NONE of those things.

But you’re still not ready to swallow the “red pill” and continue to prefer to take the “blue pill” that make you see things without the knowledge of “the real world.”

But here’s the “red pill.” The president and his assistants don’t set ANY foreign policy. They merely follow orders. Support for Islamic Terrorists comes from the very TOP of those who really control the US Government’s foreign.

And your next question should be “orders from whom?”

I have already explained in other posts that the last president who didn’t follow orders from the CIA and top military and industrial leaders was JFK. JFK didn’t understand that the Vietnam War was going to happen regardless of his wishes to pull out the small group of forces that was already there. The message to all future presidents was delivered on 11/22/1963.

(Antonio Veciana, who led an anti-Castro group prior to the assasination, was an eyewitness to a meeting between David Atlee Phillips, head of the CIA’s Western Operations (which included Cuba), and Lee Harvey Oswald, prior to the assasination. Oswald was clearly working for the CIA, which is why, to this day, the US Government refuses to permit Oswald’s tax returns to be made public. Oswald did not understand that his role was to be the patsy, until later, which is why he had to executed quickly that weekend. Records from the Dallas Public Library show that Oswald liked to read James Bond novels, not understanding that he was a spy pretending to be a communist who was to be terminated himself.)

So, yes, there is plenty of “blame” to go around. But the reality is that Bush, Obama, Clinton, are just errant boys and girls. They don’t make the decisions. They just follow orders. And you can go back to Eisenhower for support of the Muslim Brotherhood.

I’ve always wondered whether the National Review was getting funded by Republican Party hacks.

Little Al on May 9, 2014 at 5:40 pm

muslims are the new blacks – pandered to, recipients of artificial, unwarranted praise for minimal “achievements”, set-asides, and cover-ups by the media for their criminal predilections and actions.

Now in post-racial America since we’ve “shown” the world (read: tres chic Europeans who vapid pseudo-intellectuals regard as being more “advanced” than we) that we’re truly colorblind, the whole, wide world can now have its own common oppressed “minority” to adopt: poor, little, low-self-esteemed, Mohammed, who we can collectively coddle and show how progressive we all really are.

The common denominator for both repubs and the left is that they fear both groups.

Here you don’t mention Obama’s bother’s personal ties to the organization.
There’s a difference between turning a blind eye and being joined at the hip.
They know that in Egypt and the rest of the Muslim world but apparently not too well elsewhere.

You also don’t mention Karl Rove and Grover Norquist who I’m guessing have way more to do with you being banned from National Review than Bush even knew about.

It’s not about hypocrisy. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are not hypocrites. They just tell the lies people want to hear. That’s not the same thing at all.

Frankz on May 9, 2014 at 7:37 pm

    Obama’s *brother’s* personal ties

    Frankz on May 9, 2014 at 7:58 pm

If you want to know how joined at the hip this administration and the Muslim Brotherhood are then take a look at Benghazi.

Lies like that don’t happen just because of some “security failure” that’s inconvenient for an election cycle and if they did you would have a whole new set of problems.

Yet another episode of The Unvarnished Truth by Debbie Schlussel. Or another chapter in How They Killed The Goose That Laid The Golden Eggs. Only problem, the goose is all too willing to kill itself. Probably choked on a worm, the disease that is liberalism, straight from the mind of Satan.

National Review too, huh Debbie? Guess what, folks? The only place where the unvarnished is acceptable is a new age furniture store.

Shame on George W., and I’m tired of hearing what a supremely nice man he is. In the name of showing how tolerant Republicans can be, he contributed heavily to selling this country down the river, while pretending to be the War On Terror president.

Hey George, mission NOT accomplished, you sap. I’m sorry I voted for him in 2000, but by 2004, I had wised up. I didn’t vote in a presidential election after voting for Carter at age 20 in 1976. A wasted vote on a fake, phony, two bit fraud. Then in 2000, because there’s no way I was going to see The Great StainMaker’s vice president ascend to the throne, I voted for Dubya.

When I voted for Dubya, I told a friend about my reasoning, but likened the political scene to the heavyweight boxing division after Ali, Frazier and a few others were gone. Now it’s just gone, the whole country. The Disunited Snakes of Amerika will soon be a smoking hole in the ground, and the world will be plunged in to deep darkness, mourning the death of The Goose That Laid The Golden Eggs. But it will be too late.

And for those who lament the “cops of the world” mentality taken on by the U.S. at times, just try being the big guy on the block for once in your life. Everyone looks at you every time the bad guys go by, to see if you’ll protect them. Then, if you smack the wrong guy down once in a while, everyone gives you hell. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t. Soon, the world will learn what it’s like to live without the U.S.A. As Debbie likes to say, so sad, too bad.

And in part, perhaps in large part, . . .

because the people who could do something about it, . . .

marginalized her, and failed to heed her words.

Dear Debbie,
I have been reading your post for several years now and I find them well written and to the point, with very good facts. This is an excellent article and I am with you on that one all the way.
Did you do more research on that group ACCESS? I just recently went to a disgusting interfaith meeting between a Jewish group and a Muslim group. I was so upset I left early. But I listened to Said Kahn and Rabbi Lupovitch garbage. I also went to the meeting with the woman from ACCESS and the man from the Jewish family center. I could not believe that a Jewish group and a Muslim group would work together. ACCESS was actually probably lying and the Jewish group was falling for it. When I think I adopted my son from the Jewish family center.
If you have more information on ACCESS could you be so kind and give it to me. You have my email.
Thank you

Republicans really believe the Grover Norquist line that Muslims are “natural conservatives” and thus are part of the expanding GOP coalition. Suhail Khan, by the way, is a very close ally of Norquist — as Norquist was tight with Bush chief political adviser Karl Rove. So if Khan managed to get Debbie banned from National Review, I can guarantee that Grover had something to do with this.

To hell with that Red State mentality, in which silence is the rule whenever Republicans behave exactly the same way as Democrats. It’s all about theater and attaining political advantage; principles go out the window.

This is nothing new with the Dept. of State. They do all sorts of DESTRUCTIVE things with their “LISTS”.

Back in the 1994-98 the Clinton administration DID put the Albanian muslim terrorist group the KLA on the terrorist list. This was because they received over 3 Million dollars from Bin Laden in 1993 to buy weapons and of course, they did terrorist type killings.

The group was kidnapping children and killing them, ambushing the police and any other employee of the Govt. including mail men and utility service employees. They even shot and killed Christian leaders.

Then, all of a sudden in late 1998, they were removed from that list and actually started being funded and supplied by the USA. From a NASTY blood thirsty pariah to good old pal who can do NO wrong in the sights of their new lord, the USA.

Go ahead KLA, rape and mutilate those young nuns and butcher two monks, let not your heart be troubled, the USA LOVES YOUR SORRY AZZZZ’!

Then in March 24, 1999…the USA and NATO formed an AIR FORCE for the KLA and bombed Serbia…killing over 3,000 civilians including over 25 Albanian men, women and children in a caravan of wagons and cars trying to escape the NATO bombing by heading toward Montenegro.

NATO even tried to blame the Serbs for the bombing even though the Serbian Air Force was literally UNDER the ground in areas around Serbia. However, USA made bomb fragments told the world it was NATO.

So maybe OUR Govt. had/has some plans to use the BOKO HARAM “Orcs” as a new ARMY to do some nasty stuff in Nigeria to make the Christians FLEE IN TERROR.

AH HA! This just may be the ACTUAL US STATE DEPT’s plan all along.

Take that elected Prez of Nigeria… the USA HAS YOUR back…watch out for flying knives now!

GUTLESS MSM WIMP of the Year Award goes tooo…NEWSWEEK…
..trying to fabricate a hysteria and fear of Israel, when islamoterrorists are actively engaged against us. Does Newsweek go after them? No, they create a non story to smear the Jewish state. Real tough guy journalism over at NEWSWEAK. The global espionage world knows the story is a joke.

HK on May 11, 2014 at 10:18 am

Uhhhhhhh HK. You realize that news should cover all topics right? So kidnapping girls halfway across the world sucks and is a horrible terrible act which should be condemned. At the same time, we should be fair and just, so if any political entitiy claims to be friendly, whom we give billions of dollars to so they can keep on doing what they are doing, continues spying on our government, YES SIR WE SHOULD NOT TURN A BLIND EYE! Man, even though all people should keep a healthy eye on their own government, I dont like other people spying on our government. Its not right. Annnnd if you prefer, you can leave our country and go join those people who spy on us if you like them better than us.

Guy on May 11, 2014 at 11:53 am

With all due respect,Guy….all pertinent nations “spy” on each other. Clandestine means are in place between and betwixt all the world powers. Sorry, I dont mean to focus attention on your naivete but to discount and pass off the parallel self interests between Israel and the US is just, well, showing your lack of understanding of how the world works. Israel does much to aid and protect the US from enemies that live within their hornet’s nest (and of course visa versa). You are falling prey to forming a deleterious opinion based on suspect fomenting incidences that is a result of an internal squabble between 2 sets of agencies that are on the same team. Read this. Listen to this. And know it. Learn who the real good guys are and who the real bad guys are.
