Why Didn’t Hillary Designate Boko Haram a Terrorist Org?

Liberals don’t believe in the word terrorist.
Check it out:

While Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton fought hard against officially designating the Islamists of Boko Haram as a terror group—placing her in the camp of far-left activist group MoveOn.org.

Josh Rogin at The Daily Beast reports that other agencies in the Obama Administration were frustrated by Clinton’s stonewalling on the issue:
[Clinton’s] own State Department refused to place Boko Haram on the list of foreign terrorist organizations in 2011, after the group bombed the U.N. headquarters in Abuja. The refusal came despite the urging of the Justice Department, the FBI, the CIA, and over a dozen senators and congressmen.

“The one thing she could have done, the one tool she had at her disposal, she didn’t use. And nobody can say she wasn’t urged to do it. It’s gross hypocrisy,” said a former senior U.S. official who was involved in the debate. “The FBI, the CIA, and the Justice Department really wanted Boko Haram designated, they wanted the authorities that would provide to go after them, and they voiced that repeatedly to elected officials.”
