The outrage over the abduction of the Nigerian schoolgirls by radical Islamic terror group Boko Haram is justified.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called the kidnapping “abominable,” and “an act of terrorism that merits the fullest response possible.”

When asked about the attack in Benghazi by Ansar al-Shari that took the lives of American diplomats, she said, “What does it matter?” Tommy Veitor, the president’s former National Security Council Spokesman, said to Brett Baier, “Dude, that was, like, two years ago.”

If Americans attack a foreign embassy, it would be considered an act of war.

Benghazi means nothing to this administration. That much is clear.

Boko Haram needs to be held responsible for their actions, just as Ansar al-Shari needs to be held accountable for their actions in Benghazi as well as in Tunis. The question is, who is responsible for taking action?
