President of Major Country Openly Accuses Barack H. Obama of Aiding Muslim Terrorism
Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari said that President Barack Obama “aided and abetted” radical Islamic terrorists by refusing to sell arms to the Nigerians under the Leahy Act, citing human rights allegations.
“Blanket application” of the Leahy Act because of “unproven allegations of human rights violations levelled against our forces” denied the country “access to appropriate strategic weapons to prosecute the war,” Buhari said in a speech at the United Institute for Peace.
The United States had blocked a number of weapons sales in Nigeria’s fight against the Boko Haram group, including sales of Bell AH-1 Cobra helicopters from Israel.
As the original manufacturer of the helicopters, the United States had veto power, which it used.
