WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKZO) -- The House Intelligence Committee chairman says U.S. foreign policy can't be based on what's trending online.

Republican Mike Rogers of Michigan told CBS's "Face The Nation" the Nigerian schoolgirls aren't the only ones who need American help. He also says Afghan, Syrian and Chad women need help, too.

An Islamist group called Boko Haram says it kidnapped over 200 Nigerian schoolgirls and will sell them as slaves. Their plight came to world attention when pictures demanding "Bring Back Our Girls" appeared on Twitter and Facebook.
