‘No words’: Obama’s military orders American soldiers to IGNORE allies raping young boys
One of the great contradictions in many Middle Eastern countries is the unequivocal condemnation of homosexuality, which is punishable by death in a number of places, while the practice of sexually abusing young boys is widely accepted.
In Afghanistan, there’s a name for the atrocity — bacha bazi, which means “boy play.”
Even worse, U.S. soldiers and Marines serving in Afghanistan have been ordered not to intervene, according to a bombshell report Sunday from The New York Times. Even when the assaults take place on military bases and U.S. personnel can hear the young boys screaming in pain while being raped.
The Times reported:
KABUL, Afghanistan — In his last phone call home, Lance Cpl. Gregory Buckley Jr. told his father what was troubling him: From his bunk in southern Afghanistan, he could hear Afghan police officers sexually abusing boys they had brought to the base.
“At night we can hear them screaming, but we’re not allowed to do anything about it,” the Marine’s father, Gregory Buckley Sr., recalled his son telling him before he was shot to death at the base in 2012. He urged his son to tell his superiors. “My son said that his officers told him to look the other way because it’s their culture.”
Rampant sexual abuse of children has long been a problem in Afghanistan, particularly among armed commanders who dominate much of the rural landscape and can bully the population. The practice is called bacha bazi, literally “boy play,” and American soldiers and Marines have been instructed not to intervene — in some cases, not even when their Afghan allies have abused boys on military bases, according to interviews and court records.
