A new report on pervasive child sexual abuse among Afghan security personnel, prepared by the independent Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), is being suppressed by Pentagon officials. In its place, the Defense Department has issued a highly technical report, which laments procedural shortcomings but omits a full account of the systematic pederasty by Afghan officers that American forces have basically ignored for 15 years.

“The results of SIGAR’s unreleased inquiry, which was requested by 93 members of Congress in 2015, remains classified at the Pentagon’s direction, raising questions about the military’s transparency and the extent to which it is complying with laws meant to curb such behavior,” according to the Washington Post.

Selling and using young boys (often dressed as girls) for sex—known colloquially as bacha bazi, or “boy play”—has deep roots in Afghanistan and has been widely practiced for generations. A State Department report in 2010 described the extent of the problem: “Child abuse was endemic throughout the country, based on cultural beliefs about child-rearing, and included general neglect, physical abuse, sexual abuse, abandonment, and confined forced labor to pay off family debts.” It also noted that “most child sexual abusers were not arrested.” American officers, who share quarters with Afghan ones, report boys screaming in agony, which they were instructed to ignore.

In 2010, I called on the Obama administration to acknowledge the problem and draw a clear moral line: “The president should inform our representatives in Afghanistan that although we shall continue to put up with much that we do not condone, there are limits to our accommodations. We shall neither finance nor protect a regime that refuses to act against large-scale sexual abuse of children.” I renewed this call in 2012 and 2016.

Formally, bacha bazi is illegal in Afghanistan. And according to the State Department’s 2017 report on human trafficking, the Afghan government has recently started to pursue criminal cases against those involved in bacha bazi, including several Afghan soldiers and police officials; however—the majority of these few cases had their charges dropped. That’s partly because, the report notes, “most who engage in bacha baazi paid bribes to, or had relationships with, law enforcement, prosecutors, or judges that effectively exempted them from prosecution.” Exactly how widespread this problem is remains unknown, as scant data is available, which makes reports like SIGAR’s all the more crucial. It leaves no doubt that the vile practice is pervasive. American officials often argue that we sink blood and hundreds of billions of dollars into this Godforsaken country—“where empires go to die”—in order to foster human rights and democracy, not just to curb terrorism. It points with pride to the many girls who have been enrolled in schools since the US ousted the Taliban. Nevertheless, it is widely acknowledged that Afghanistan is one of the most corrupt nations in the world, and produces about 90% of the world’s heroin. One should add to this list of troubling failures—the continued mass, institutionalized pedophilia, practiced by the Afghan elites.

"which they were instructed to ignore"

There is no excuse for this. None. I don't care what they say or come up with. 15 yrs. As the boys suffered in agony. They are looking the other way as the men have their way with 10 yr. old boys My brain can't even process this. The DOD ignored their people viewing CP on their laptops and now they are ignoring the rape of young boys. I can't even........

There really is none. Senators, I want no protections bought using the bodies of these children. No oil. No peace. Nothing. THIS IS NOT PEACE.

Well, I was wondering about Rand Paul. I knew Corker and Bob M were Deep State. One more we can count on. They make new laws to cancel out old laws that are still in place. Laws that people don't even know exist. Nice to see you around.

I have seen that and it confirmed what I had already thought about the Weasel. There is also a video of him with Nora O'Donnell explaining how DEW works. Direct Electronic Weapon I think it might be scrubbed by now. It's how they have been starting the fires all over the country. These guys are dying out soon. We have to make sure they are not replaced.

A local reported that the growing of poppies and dancing boys had been eradicated under the Taliban with penalty of death. US started both back up. The situation went from bad to worse.

Hey Factfinder, great post! I'm giving this the "Potential Lead" flair because I think this topic really could use much, much deeper digging and exposing by us. Thanks for making this thread.

BOB CORKER + ROBERT MENENDEZ = PART OF THE PROBLEM. EVIL PEOPLE. If I was in their constituency this would be wallpapering their office doors.

Excellent post. Did anyone tell LINDSAY LOHAN ABOUT THIS?

So, can a Supreme Court Judge candidate have a 10 YEAR OLD boy sex slave chained to his bed, AND STILL BE APPROVED?

Appreciate it, 0. If a senator of your state is on the Foreign Relations Committee, you might give him/her a piece of your mind on this subject. See link added at end of post.

I’ve thought for a long time that one of the reasons why ptsd is seemingly so much more prevalent today than in say ww2 is that witness of child rape is part of it. I've heard of a few stories now where soldiers would hear children moaning and screaming at night when they were stationed right next to Afghani military bases, and they knew what was going on but were told to ignore it. Makes you wonder though why the green beret didn't just kill the guy, though. That's what he is trained for, and as their slogan goes- de opresso Libre- to free the oppressed... He must have been scared shitless by someone into not pulling the trigger

Might have had something to do with the Green Berets' mandate to work with indigenous forces.

“I understand how SOF is different from conventional forces, but the Rangers and Green Berets seem just alike to me. You have a Special Forces Tab and a Ranger Tab. What’s the difference?”

“The units are very different, sir. While both units are composed of very capable soldiers, selected for intelligence and fitness, Rangers attack the enemy directly, while Special Forces work by, with, and through indigenous forces to accomplish tasks far beyond their numbers.”

"Sens. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) and Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) on Tuesday evening unveiled their bill to impose new sanctions on Iran if international negotiators fail to reach a deal by June 30 on Tehran's nuclear program.

Fourteen other senators co-sponsored the the Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act of 2015 — eight Republicans and six Democrats: Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), and Sens. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.), Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), Dan Coats (R-Ind.), Gary Peters (D-Mich.), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Bob Casey Jr. (D-Pa.), Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Roy Blunt (R-Mo.). ...The bill allows the president to continuously waive sanctions for a 30 days at a time, if a deal is near. ...It also requires the administration to formally submit the text of any new nuclear agreement or extension of talks to Congress within five days."

Cruz: Menendez probe politically motivated 03/07/15 02:13 PM EST http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/234966-cruz-menendez-probe-politically-motivated

“The announcement this week by the Justice Department that they were bringing charges against Bob Menendez — I will point out that the timing seems awfully coincidental that … in the very week that Bob Menendez showed incredible courage to speak out and call out President Obama for the damage that his policy is doing to our national security … the Justice Department announces they’re moving forward with the criminal prosecution,” Cruz said.

“It raises the suggestion to other Democrats that if you dare part from the Obama White House, that criminal prosecutions will be used potentially as a political weapon against you as well,” he added.
