Yesterday US President Barack Obama addressed the United Nations and said there is no justification for killing innocents, attacking embassies and diplomats. On August 25, 2011, Boko Haram bombed the United Nations HQ in Nigeria and killed its diplomats and numerous innocents. The US said it was because of poverty.
America's diplomatic skullduggery threatens to compromise its moral standing in international affairs as it struggles to decide which is the most "Islamically correct" version of the truth on the murder of its ambassador. In the meantime more innocents were blown to smithereens at St .John's Catholic church during Sunday mass making the attacks in Nigeria possibly the most prolonged, sustained systematic attacks on worshippers currently in Christendom.
Above is a headline of a newspaper I brought back with me that is quite revealing - Hilary Clinton and President Jonathan smiling directly underneath a list of Christians slain in a church massacre.
