" A top Nigerian military official believes he knows the whereabouts of girls kidnapped last month, but he says the nation's military will not use force to try to rescue them, a state news report said Monday.
"We want our girls back. I can tell you that our military can and will do it, but where they are held, can we go there with force?" asked Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh.
"Nobody should say Nigerian military does not know what it is doing; we can't kill our girls in the name of trying to get them back."
His comments were reported by the News Agency of Nigeria, a state-run news service.
Badeh continued: "The good news for the parents of the girls is that we know where they are, but we cannot tell you.
"We cannot come and tell you the military secret, just leave us alone, we are working to get the girls back," he reportedly said." CNN
Homage to Evelyn Waugh.
What a crock! We are supposed to believe that the Nigerian government and armed forces have now miraculously "found" the girls, that the girls are all in one area, and that soon all will be well.
Well, I believe that last part. As I speculated earlier the "fix" has been in all along and what is going on is the de facto partition of NE Nigeria from the rest of the country in return for a hudna that will give Goodluck Jonathan a temporary cease fire in which Boko Haram can construct an Islamic Emirate in the NE. Some subvention from oil production for Boko Haram is to be expected.
Hey folks! This isn't my first rodeo and I have known a lot of phony bastards like Goodluck Jonathan. It is not surprising that Jonathan's wife became angry when social media crazed people like Michelle Obama rallied the world's media and frenzied emotionalists to the cause of immediate action. That was not the way "the program" was supposed to work, not at all.
And then Michelle's legions of talking heads took charge to continue the process of driving the US towards intervention in Nigeria. This began to lose "steam" a few days ago. US intelligence must have learned something that began to restore sanity to the story.
So, now we have the truth approaching. Let's all calm down and let the Nigerians work this out for themselves. pl
