This should not be a surprise US reaction, given the following quote from page 261 of the paperback edition of The Audicity of Hope, written by a Mr. Barrack Hussein Obama: "I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

What does this regime know about “human rights”! They are for everything that screams that they don’t even understand what that means!

It sounds like Barry Benghazi is pissed at the Nigerians. You don’t mess with Barry’s Islamist Muzzie Bros.

Islam is at war against the rest of the world.

Denying it makes no sense, but both Hussein and his predecessor feel the need to deny.

This is entirely predictable, given the agenda of the Dhimmi-in-Chief.

Never mind the wholesale slaughter of Christians, Animists and other "infidels" in Nigeria. There is no "there" there.

Barry Benghazi sides with Boko Haram over the legitimate government of Nigeria. Barry's State Department refuses to label Boko Haram a "terrorist" organization. And I guess they don't regard this, committed by Boko Haram, as a "human rights violation."

He is well, thanks! A large lump and bruise on the left side of his face, some contusions inside his mouth, and he's still in moderate discomfort, but no permanent damage.

Excellent graphic, Vet! Have not seen their pics before - in this array, it makes it perfectly clear where the loyalties of Obama lie.

Thanks very much for your service to our Nation!

Wow Obama was right on it!

I guess he leaned his lesson with not protecting Americans in Benghazi.

Oh, this is about Islamists being attacked?

By Islamics?

Oh that's right, no Americans to let get killed, let's get right on it! Stand with your Muslim buddies, B. Hussein Obituary.

From the CIA World Factbook:

Muslim 50%, Christian 40%, indigenous beliefs 10%

The government is controlled by the Christians who live in the south (where the oil is). The Islamists are in the north.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry went on to say that the Nigerians had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan...........

Looks like Nigeria has outsmarted the U.S. They can identify the enemy; obama refuses to admit that radical extremist Muslims are the problem and the enemy.

I've read dozens of headlines of muzzies attacking Christians, mowing down entire churches during services etc, over the last few years. Finally I read a headline turning the tables, and finally the US govt speaks up on the subject.....

It’s not the USA talking. It’s the leader that a few million a$$holes elected.

The same leader who NEVER condemns attacks by his coreligionists against Christians or Jews, but ALWAYS condemns insults by normal people against his buddies.

Barry's State Department refuses to label Boko Haram a "terrorist" organization.

So "Boko Haram" means "Western Education is a sin." What's the problem? I don't see a problem.

Seems that Kerry just dusted off his hate-America Senate speech from April 21, 1971 and substituted the name “Nigerians” for “Americans”.

Still the same old traitor after all these years.

When this bastard dies, it will be “The Change We Have Been Waiting For”.

We are seeing an influx of Nigerians in our area. Looks like the middle class of Nigeria is fleeing before the Islamists take over.

They probably appreciate the Nigerian government taking a hard line against the islamists.

I was just reading this morning that the Feds still have not indicted the surviving Tsarnaev terrorist brother. By law, they have only 30 days to do it, and are nearing the end of that time.

Supposedly, the prosecutor is going to ask for more time, but otherwise, I guess another terrorist just walks. Heck, maybe the local police can give him a ticket for jaywalking or something. I mean, he only killed three people, left 14 amputees, and maimed or wounded about 100. And they were just Americans and he was a Muslim, so you know whose side our government is on...

Just look at the reason this asshat returned the bust of Churchill....which wasn’t his to return!

The lop-eared muslim was influenced by a comment Churchill made in 1899 about the need to check the creeping menace of Islam.
