Pact with the devil: Obama’s Pentagon tells our soldiers in Afghanistan to ignore child sex abuse

Colin Freeman reports for the UK Telegraph, Sept. 22, 2015, that the U. S. military is accused of encouraging our troops in Afghanistan to turn a blind eye to sexual abuse of young boys committed by local army commanders whom we had trained.

Former U.S. soldiers say they were ordered to ignore local Afghan commanders taking young boys as sexual playthings — a practice known as bacha bazi (“boy play”) which is common in Islamic Afghanistan where extra-marital sex and female prostitution are frowned upon. The veterans say the U.S. military placed greater priority on maintaining good relations with local Afghan commanders and militia leaders because they will take over once American forces pull out.

The New York Times says soldiers who objected to the abuse often found themselves facing disciplinary proceedings as a result.

Dan Quinn, a former Special Forces captain who, along with a colleague, was disciplined for allegedly beating up a U.S.-backed Afghan militia commander who kept a boy chained to his bed as a sex slave, told the NYT: “The reason we were here is because we heard the terrible things the Taliban were doing to people, how they were taking away human rights. But we were putting people into power who would do things that were worse than the Taliban did — that was something village elders voiced to me.”

LCpl Gregory T. Buckley Jr.

In 2012, a U.S. Marine stationed in Afghanistan, LCpl Gregory Buckley Jr., was shot by one of a large entourage of “tea boys” living with an Afghan police commander named Sarwar Jan on the military base in Helmand Province.

Sawar JanJan, who denies the allegations, has a reputation for corruption, support for the Taliban and child abduction.

Buckley’s father blames bacha bazi for his son’s death, saying that the teenage boy who killed his son may have blamed him for failing to stop abuse by a local Afghan commander.

Buckley Sr. told the NYT that he is tormented by the possibility that his son’s death was linked to the sexual abuse: “As far as the young boys are concerned, the marines are allowing it to happen and so they’re guilty by association. They don’t know our marines are sick to their stomachs.”

General John F. Campbell, commander of both US and allied forces in Afghanistan — a post he assumed on August 26, 2014, in other words, an Obama appointee — denied on Sept. 22 there was ever a policy for forces to ignore Afghan officials’ sexual abuse of minors.

Campbell said in a statement:

“I personally have served multiple tours of duty in Afghanistan and am absolutely confident that no such theater policy has ever existed here, and certainly, no such policy has existed throughout my tenure as commander. I want to make absolutely clear that any sexual abuse or similar mistreatment of others, no matter the alleged perpetrator or victim, is completely unacceptable and reprehensible.”

Blah, blah, blah.

  1. I heard about this a long time ago when I heard a speaker talk about what Islamists actually do. Apparently, this is an extremely common practice. American military people are not used to this kind of horror and what Buckley did was the normal reaction. I too believe the mucky mucks like Campbell are lying about it. I wish we’d bring all the military from all over the world home and put them on our southern border (and northern too) with Barrett 50 calibers!

  3. When you ’embrace all cultures’ then by definition you have lost a single set of values, and all is ‘up for grabs’. Paedophilia is now simply a valid sexual orientation, according to Salon this week dontcha kno?

  4. Jan having to sit in his own excrement is just about all he is worth. The Heavens must weep over these atrocities. The fact that our American young men have to be exposed to this devil’s play, and yet keep quiet is just beyond belief. These people are animals,they do not have the sensibilities of human beings. Are the 180,000 that Obama wants to let immigrate to our land, also followers of this pernicious evil doing? May The Lord Bless all of us who are trying to live righteous lives–perhaps our land may survive after all.

  5. I just cannot imagine having to listen to the screams of children and know what is happening to them, but be unable to do anything about it. If we are not there to “fix” this country, then we need to leave as soon as possible.
    Why waste the lives of anymore of our own just so that we can put people like this in power.

  6. Sad to say this isn’t exactly a new development, merc orgs under U.S> Government command have been running child sex slavery rings in foreign countries etc. one such big name is dyncorp. So, can’t say that such vileness is foreign to ye old inverted pentagram, especially since said building also has employees on this side of the atlantic that are also into child porn, and regularly access it from government computers therein, and not for investigation purposes, either. (see these relevant links: http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/Evils%20in%20Government/dyncorp_disgrace.htm and http://www.theguardian.com/world/2010/jul/24/pentagon-us-staff-downloaded-child-pornography with http://investmentwatchblog.com/5200-pentagon-employees-bought-child-pornography-investigation-halted-after-8-months/ )
    With that much going on, (and really this is just what people have heard about, mind you, tip of the iceberg stuff, there are also thing slike the franklin coverup etc..) it makes one wonder why when good folks say that the government is run by those who follow the devil, few believe them.

  7. There is a place in hell for those committing, ignoring or excusing this behavior. I would love to be standing there to take their ticket.

  8. The Pentagon needs to be cleaned out and bleached from wall-to-wall, and the brass-wearing desk drivers that issued this hideous order need to be thrown out of the military and forced to forfeit their pensions.

    – And any US soldier that violates this depraved order should get a commendation and an automatic promotion.

  9. We do not know how much longer this Scourge of an Administration from Hell shall last. I ordinarily would not care about Obama’s personal sexual proclivities, except that, with this policy, we have institutionalized sodomy, for all practical purposes. This clearly is a case of material cooperation with evil—and Obama knows it.
    The crimes of this Administration cry out to Heaven for vengeance. Vengeance shall come. The question is, Can we survive it?

  10. Christianity is the only true religion in the world. It is also the only religion that supports and protects women and children and the elderly, the “weakest of us all”. To truly initiate change in the country and world that reflects God’s desires, we need true Christians in our government (instead of the liars and deceivers we have now), on the benches, and running the White House (i.e. pentagon). Until then, we will have more of these atrocities against ‘the weakest of us all’ and the pentagon should be renamed “the pentagram”.

    • Christianity is cool but it lacks coherent logical philosophy and is at heart pacifist. Vaishnavism (Krishna Consciousness) involves similar worship of the one God of Love, but encompasses a fully coherent and logical philosophy, including an overt doctrine of just war against evil.

  11. Well, thanks for the news flash…but, isn’t ignorance the mainstay of this admin: the war on terror is over, we can close Guantanamo, the economy is perfect, Obamacare is a fantastic success and everyone is happy, ISIS is the “JV Team,” blah, blah, blah.
