Senator McCain released a statement recently regarding the international effort to free the 200 young Nigerian girls kidnapped by the terrorist group Boko Haram. He expressed that although Tweets and hashtags are appreciated they do not liberate prisoners.


The Senator made it clear that only those that have the power and influence to make a difference can aid in this situation. He urged the United States to “help our Nigerian partners to fulfill their responsibilities to their own citizens. But we must also recognize that our great power confers a special responsibility on us. If the most powerful nation in the history of the world has an opportunity to prevent a crime against humanity and save more than 200 young girls from lives of certain misery, what would it say about us if we did not act?”

To save the girls, the world must help. It seems the Nigerian government cannot handle the current situation alone.
