UN Finally Gets Around to Banning Boko Haram
After a decade of murdering Christians and Muslims who weren't the right kind of Muslims, the UN has finally decided that Boko Haram is a terrorist organization. And all it took was a bunch of schoolgirls to get kidnapped.
Naturally, our brain trust in the UN had this to say:
The United Nations blacklisted Boko Haram as an al-Qaida-linked terror group and imposed sanctions Thursday, a month after the it claimed the kidnapping of more than 200 schoolgirls in Nigeria....Yes, I'm sure that the UN condemning Boko Haram really has them shaking in their boots.
U.S. envoy to the U.N. Samantha Power said it was "an important step" in support of Nigeria's efforts "to defeat Boko Haram and hold its murderous leadership accountable for atrocities.
The UN: Writing strongly worded letters to mass murderers since 1945.
