Nigerian police have put up a $300,000 reward to locate the 300 Nigerian teenaged girls abducted 3 weeks ago by the terrorist group Boko Haram.

On Tuesday, Nigeria finally agreed to allow outside help from the U.S. in finding the girls but Adotei Akwei of Amnesty International thinks the odds of finding these girls are slim.

The Amnesty spokesman says the President of Nigeria waited too long to even admit the abductions happened and too long to accept help from the United States.

    It is almost enough to say that Pauline Marois was right. And keep in mind that Wynne and her twit mentor Dalton wanted to inflict Sharia law on Ontario.Not sure Sharia approves of lesbians though

    "The Amnesty spokesman says the President of Nigeria waited too long to even admit the abductions happened and too long to accept help from the United States."

    This sort of thing is very typical of this sort of government in third world countries. This is the country of Nigerian princes who email you and want to give you their vast fortunes. As long as you pay the administration fee of a paltry few tens of thousands of dollars. And then wait.

    Here's my view on this... The US has shown that they have no problem whatsoever in fabricating a human rights issue when they want to invade a country that's involved in oil supply. Now, will the US go into Nigeria for a REAL human rights violation, and do what it takes to clean out the vermin? Send in troops, and wipe out this perverted, disgusting organization that claims to be Muslim? Or will they get a free pass, due to the "religion" card?

      @Angry Bill i would take long to . being forced into a option of having to call for help shows weak leadership . it is not defer ant then man not helping other man in a problum cause it makes men feel less of a man . . thay tought thay could take care of it and looks like thay cant . so they call for backup . thats been going on for years .

    And apparently Islamists have no problem with this groups's depiction of the Muslim faith. Too bad, Speaking out would weaken the terrorists and give them no basis to claim justification, even to themselves. Yet I have yet to read a single line from a single leader.

    I can't imagine any other members of other faiths being so quiet at such a crucial time. Am I wrong.
