Kerry and Boko Haram

Because I've got nothing new, re-posting my own comment from early in the ONT:

Heard Rush (rerun) on the way home. Apparently, John F'ing Kerry says that the official US position is that because the Nigerian government banned gay marriage, Boko Haram is an oppressed minority which is just protesting their oppressive oppressedness by standing in the way of those girls' education.

Apparently, Boko Haram are not terrorists, but a much-maligned, oppressed community of armed hairdressers and interior decorators, fighting for homosexual rights or something.

I ... think I got that sorta-mostly right. I might have just imagined the hairdressers and interior decorators part.
