Just curious as to why it has taken so long for the kidnapping of over 200 Christian female children in order for the US and the World to "get serious" about these terrorists and their crazy evil leader. Hoping for the Nigerian government to handle things was silly. They have no ability to regain control nor to effectively eliminate this group. And how is it that despite having killed over 900 people by 2010, SoS Hillary Clinton refused repeated requests to designate them as a terrorist organization? Had we been targeting them for the last several years, we could have had so much more information on their movement in the region and how they operate. Somebody needs to step up and take action. Words are useless at this point.
