DoD REPORT: American Soldiers Were Punished For Speaking Out About Muslims Soldiers Raping Children
When all is said and done, the legacy that Obama is left with will be quite a disgusting trail of controversy, cover-ups and conspiracies. The latest that can be added to that list is the protection of pedophiles that abused and used children. A report that was initially covered-up by the Pentagon under the Obama Administration indicated that there was widespread child-rape among the leadership of the Afghan forces that were working with American troops to restore order in the middle east.
The Pentagon tried to block an independent assessment of child sex abuse crimes committed by Afghan soldiers and police, instead insisting on the creation of its own report offering a far less authoritative review of human rights violations perpetrated by U.S. allies, according to an aide to Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.).
Although the report released Nov. 16 by the Defense Department Inspector General’s office (DODIG) reached the grim conclusion that, for years, U.S. personnel have been inadequately trained to report such crimes, a parallel investigation by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) is thought to contain a much more detailed accounting of the problem’s severity.
But 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 abuse.
The Pentagon responded with “resistance” when Congress tapped SIGAR to conduct the probe, said Tim Rieser, an aide to Leahy, vice chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee whose namesake legislation, known as the Leahy Law, requires the U.S. military to halt assistance to foreign military units found to have committed gross human rights violations.
What’s even more disturbing is how the Department of Defense trained soldiers under Obama to view child-sex as a “culturally accepted practice.” Soldiers that reported the issue were told that nothing could be done about it.
From the Report:
“In some cases, the interviewees explained that they, or someone whom they knew, were told that nothing could be done about child sexual abuse because of Afghanistan’s status as a sovereign nation, that it was not a priority for the command.”
In 2015, a New York Times article blew the whistle on this widespread abuse–specifically the part about troops being unable to do anything on the matter.
In 2011, two members of our armed forces were PUNISHED for confronting an Afghan commander that abducted and raped a boy, keeping him as his sex slave:
Captain Dan Quinn approached an Afghan police commander about the behavior. After the commander laughed in his face, Quinn “picked him up and threw him on the ground” in order “to make sure the message was understood that if he went back to the boy, that it was not going to be tolerated.”
Following the incident, the military relieved Quinn of his command and he later resigned. Sergeant First Class Charles Martland was also punished for the same incident. Rep. Hunter intervened on his behalf with the Pentagon, and the decision to expel Martland was overturned in April 2016.
This is the leadership the Democrats offered American troops.
Why are we continuing to train these Afghanis who then shoot our soldiers in the back? Afghanistan is a complete waste. Time to come home!
