U.S. Watchdog: Afghan Forces Still ‘Complicit’ In Child Sexual Exploitation

A U.S. government watchdog says Afghan security forces remain “complicit” in the sexual abuse of young boys despite previous warnings and strict penalties for such activities laid out recently by Afghanistan’s president.

The Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), an office that audits and monitors Afghan reconstruction projects, made the fresh allegations in a report released on July 30 that highlights Afghanistan’s struggle to root out human rights violations within the U.S.-trained armed forces.

SIGAR said it had filed a classified report to Congress into claims of child sex abuse by the Afghan security forces and whether the American military was turning a blind eye to the practice.

    The MSM doesn’t care. It’s a stick to beat the military with and probably Trump eventually.

    Another reason why we need to leave completely and leave them on their own, since trying to civilise them is like attempting to domesticate a tiger. They are not worth the lives and blood of our people. Should they attempt an attack on us, fly in and bomb them to hell and then leave, repeat if necessary.

    • The sad thing is what they have done to children.

      It takes a special kind of b@$#@rd to do what the Afghans have done.
