Reports claim possible sexual abuse by Afghan commanders
The Defense Department is facing mounting criticism for its handling of child abuse allegations involving Afghan commanders, including revived claims that U.S. soldiers were instructed to look the other way when Afghan troops and officers were sexually abusing boys.
As first reported by Fox News, the Army is under scrutiny for moving to kick out Green Beret Sgt. 1st Class Charles Martland, after he got in trouble for shoving an Afghan police commander accused of raping a boy.
This was followed by The New York Times reporting Monday that American soldiers were told to ignore such sexual abuse, even in cases where Afghan allies were abusing boys on military bases.
The White House said Monday that the U.S. is "deeply concerned" about the safety of Afghan boys, when asked about the claims, but referred questions on DOD policy to the Pentagon.
Pentagon spokesman Capt. Jeff Davis told reporters on Monday that the practices described in the Times article were "abhorrent" and pushed back on the notion that military members were told not to report instances of child rape.
"We have never had a policy in place that directs any military member or any government personnel overseas to ignore human rights abuses," Davis said, noting rape is a violation of Afghan law.

mmmm yet again no mention it is homosexuals who are doing this. Typical of the media and FOX.
Kill them all and start over.
“The hard truth is that there are too many pedophiles to prosecute. We can’t just lock up 70 percent of the” Afghan security forces, the U.S. military officer with multiple deployments to Afghanistan told Fox News.
Who said lock them up, kill them.
“You can’t handle the truth!!!”
Maybe the new SecArmy is jealous...
>instructed to look the other way when Afghan troops and officers were sexually abusing boys.<
Ah, the intense blessings of Islam. And here at home we agonize if we give Islam the respect it “deserves”. Go Dr Ben, keep on badmouthing it and go Lindsay, keep on sucking up to it.
Hey C.A.I.R., any excuse or explanation for this outrageous behavior?
In Iraq they found “prisons” which were actually brothels full of arrested young boys. I distinctly remember reporting on that.
“”We have never had a policy in place that directs any military member or any government personnel overseas to ignore human rights abuses,” Davis said, noting rape is a violation of Afghan law.”
What a crock
He'll probably implement this Afghani perversion into the U.S. Army.
Its not just young boys. They’ll ‘marry’ young girls too. The 8 or 9 yr old pays her way by begging and prostituting during the day and then going home to be raped by her husband all night.
Imagine God’s wrath!
The DOD has to follow policy as dictated by the CiC.
In this case, if it’s the policy of the white hose to let muslims rape little boys, then the DOD has to abide by that policy.
Just remember: The military has been given direct orders by the white house to allow muslims to rape little boys, and military personnel will be punished for trying to stop it.
Something to think about.
Apparently you didn't get the word. It's no longer the White House. The new politically correct name is the Rainbow House.
This would also explain the Pentagon's "Don't look, don't listen, don't tell" Afghan boy rape endorsement policy.
This is 0bammy’s order. He loves middle eastern death cult members more than anything else, and will not criticize them.
This once great nation is so FUBAR, I see no way short of armed rebellion getting us out of the mess our “leaders” have put us in.
Who is to say our way is better?
