I’m “mad as hell at Michelle Obama,” said Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren, and at herself, she says, for not keeping up the pressure after more 270 Nigerian schoolgirls were kidnapped two years ago by Boko Haram.
“The first lady promised to help but walked away. Was this just a big stunt?”
Van Susteren notes that many of the girls have been killed and sold or taken as sex slaves by their Islamist captors.
“We’ve got to stop doing things just becdause it’s trendy,” Van Susteren said. “We need to prove we care with results.”
I once saw a quote by an Africa diplomat. It went something like. “Kill 1,000 Africans, nobody in the West notices. Kill 100 elephants, well then you’ve got some outrage.”
Meanwhile, Democrats like the Obamas vilify George W. Bush, who has consistently devoted large amounts of time to fighting AIDS in Africa. Not trendy, but he’s getting results.
