‘Tolerant’ U.S. Military Allowed Afghans to Rape Children

The whole idea of just war is called into question. What a legacy.

Barack Obama recently nominated Eric Fanning, a civilian who is openly homosexual, to serve as secretary of the Army. That follows ending “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” Two women recently graduated Ranger School, and there’s a raging debate about women in combat roles. But while the administration is no doubt pleased with its tolerant and politically correct force, the military can’t even uphold human rights. The U.S. military has been tolerating its Afghan allies sexually abusing young boys for years. The Afghan militia would go so far as to take young boys into U.S. bases to do “bacha bazi,” literally translated as “boy play.” Gregory Buckley Sr. told The New York Times that, before his son was killed in Afghanistan, the Marine would tell him he could hear the screams of the boys at night. Why didn’t U.S. soldiers intervene and beat the pedophiles into a pulp? Because they were told the military’s policy was to respect Afghan “culture.” The military justified inaction because it was fighting the larger evil of the Taliban. Besides, it didn’t want to alienate its molesting Afghan allies. Remember: This comes from an administration that advocates harsh responses in violation of due process for college students accused of date rape. The Times also reports that when Dan Quinn, a former Green Beret commander, threw an Afghan police commander to the ground over the rape of a boy in 2011, the military stripped him of his command. So while Obama makes the U.S. military a petri dish for “enlightened” progressive social experimentation, the whole idea of just war is called into question. What a legacy.
