CIA Gave Afghan Warlords Viagra To Help Them ‘Rape Underage Boys More Often’

CIA gave Afghanistan warlords viagra to rape boys

The Taliban’s rise to power was driven by their fierce opposition to Afghan tribal leaders’ systemic rape of young, underage boys.

According to a disturbing report by Tablet Mag, the CIA began bribing ageing Afghan warlords with Viagra around a decade ago. The spy agency knew about the rape of young boys by tribal leaders, and used viagra as a means to keep the leaders beholden to the CIA.

Information Liberation reports: If you’re wondering why they call our government the “The Great Satan,” look no further.

From The New York Times, “U.S. Soldiers Told to Ignore Sexual Abuse of Boys by Afghan Allies”:

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.

The policy has endured as American forces have recruited and organized Afghan militias to help hold territory against the Taliban. But soldiers and Marines have been increasingly troubled that instead of weeding out pedophiles, the American military was arming them in some cases and placing them as the commanders of villages — and doing little when they began abusing children.

“The reason we were here is because we heard the terrible things the Taliban were doing to people, how they were taking away human rights,” said Dan Quinn, a former Special Forces captain who beat up an American-backed militia commander for keeping a boy chained to his bed as a sex slave. “But we were putting people into power who would do things that were worse than the Taliban did — that was something village elders voiced to me.”

The policy of instructing soldiers to ignore child sexual abuse by their Afghan allies is coming under new scrutiny, particularly as it emerges that service members like Captain Quinn have faced discipline, even career ruin, for disobeying it.

After the beating, the Army relieved Captain Quinn of his command and pulled him from Afghanistan. He has since left the military.

Four years later, the Army is also trying to forcibly retire Sgt. First Class Charles Martland, a Special Forces member who joined Captain Quinn in beating up the commander.

“The Army contends that Martland and others should have looked the other way (a contention that I believe is nonsense),”
 Representative Duncan Hunter, a California Republican who hopes to save Sergeant Martland’s career, wrote last week to the Pentagon’s inspector general.

The Taliban would put to death anyone caught committing “bacha bazi.”

How many of the military-aged males being flown out of Afghanistan to America as “refugees” are doing so because they’re afraid they’ll be killed by the Taliban for engaging in this practice?
