    Nigeria's Boko Haram Pledges Allegiance to Islamic State

    Two of the world’s best-known and brutal terror groups appear set to join forces following the release of a new audio recording.

    The audio message has yet to be authenticated but purports to be from the leader of Nigeria’s Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau, pledging allegiance to the Syria- and Iraq-based Islamic State. The jihadist monitoring group SITE on Saturday quoted Shekau as saying, "We announce our allegiance to the Caliph."

    In recent weeks, there have been persistent rumors that the two groups were working together. And the latest propaganda video issued by Boko Haram, showing the execution of two alleged spies, gave indications that the Nigerian group had gotten help from Islamic State with media production and propaganda abilities.

    Still, U.S. intelligence officials remained skeptical that Boko Haram and the Islamic State had forged any “deep operational partnership."

    A U.S. intelligence official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told VOA on Saturday that even if the new pledge was authentic, it was unlikely to change the way either group operates.

    “It’s probably more for propaganda purposes than anything else,” the official said, noting Boko Haram had previously pledged allegiance to both core al-Qaida and al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb, only to “blatantly” disregard subsequent guidance from both groups.

    It's a bunch of raghead thugs grouped in gangs, all inventing and re-inventing themselves as champions of Islam, no more, no less.

    They'll follow any imam or mufti that'll sanction their lust for sex, violence and status.

    Just murdering, in-bred mid eastern scum as a rule.
