Over 200 schoolgirls, kidnapped by the militant group Boko Haram, were finally found after weeks of searching.
Western powers criticized the government of Nigeria for not acting quickly enough to find the girls. Significant publicity about the search was created for the search by women’s groups in the United States and Europe.
Some critics believe the U.S. had no business meddling in internal affairs of Nigeria. They say Boko Haram poses no danger to the west.

This is what I’m hearing from the MSM on this story…
Apparently, losing them was far more ‘newsworthy’ than finding them.
