Afghani Boys Screaming in the Night: US Soldiers Told to Stand Down and Not Stop Rape
By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton
The last thing Lance Cpl. Gregory Buckley Jr. told his father in 2012, was that he could hear young boys screaming in the night as they were raped, but they had been told to stand down. They were not to interfere because it was part of the Afghani culture. Since when are orders given to ignore blatantly deviant, vicious acts? Why are soldiers being told to just pretend atrocities are not happening on their watch? This takes evil to a whole new level and the officers who are commanding their men to do nothing and turn a blind eye are almost as guilty as the beasts who are raping these children. This is what has become of our military command under Barack Obama.
Buckley could hear Afghan police officers sexually abusing boys they had brought onto the base from his bunk and was forbidden to stop it. They were just one floor beneath him. “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.”
This policy of pretending child rape is not occurring all around these men probably contributed to the murder of Lance Corporal Buckley. He was gunned down on his base in 2012 by one of the “Tea Boys” that was servicing an Afghan police commander there in more ways than one. He came onto the base with a large contingent of these servant boys in tow. The commander’s name was Sarwar Jan.
Jan had a very bad track record. One that included corruption, supporting the Taliban and child abduction. I’m sure child molestation was left off that record for PC reasons. Two Marine officers in 2010 got him arrested, but just two years later, he was back with another unit and on Buckley’s post, Forward Operating Base Delhi, in Helmand Province.
One of the officers who had turned Jan in back in 2010 was Maj. Jason Brezler. He wrote an email to Marine officers warning them about Jan and he attached pertinent information to back that up. He was never listened to. Two weeks later, one of the boys with Jan, who was about 17, picked up a rifle and killed Buckley and two other Marines. Buckley’s father believes his murder was connected to the ongoing sexual abuse there on the base. Those that had complained about it were targets.
Only one person was punished in the whole tragic affair… Major Brezler who sent out the warning in the first place. One of the Marine Corps lawyers said that the information about the police commander’s penchant for abusing boys might be classified. The Marine Corps has now initiated proceedings to discharge Major Brezler.
The pervert commander has now taken a higher-ranking police command in that province. He and his family are adept liars and claim he never raped anyone and had nothing to do with the murder of those Marines. His word was taken over the word of Marines by officers. The scuttlebutt in the province is that he still has a tremendous appetite for children and sexual abuse.
What does it say about our military and our nation when we let demons like this commit unspeakable acts against children and we let them operate with impunity? What does it say about us when we let them bring child sex slaves onto our military bases to sodomize these boys in the middle of the night and our warriors are commanded to ignore the screams? Yes, massive sexual abuse of children is considered ‘normal’ in Islamic culture. That doesn’t make it right. If they were into child sacrifice, would we be forced to just watch that as well? What about beheadings and crucifixions? If these beasts aren’t having their way with some defenseless goat, they are out trolling for children. The young boys are a sign of power and wealth to these men. They feel their perverted debauchery is a perk of their position in life. The practice is called bacha bazi, literally “boy play.” How sick is that? Any pervert caught raping a child should be executed on the spot.
Our Marines are told to stand down because we are working with the Afghan forces and we don’t want to offend them. I don’t give a rat’s ass whether they are ‘offended’ or not. Our soldiers are finding this practice very hard to stomach. I’m sure many have the sincere urge to beat the pedophiles into a bloody pulp. Our military is knowingly promoting these ‘boy lovers’ and arming them. They are making them commanders of villages where they can take the most beautiful children as their sex slaves. All with the help and blessing of the US military command.
“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 keeping silent and turning a blind eye as these Afghani war lords and commanders rape and abuse children is being scrutinized. It should never have existed and speaks to a very disturbing tendency in our military under the current command to justify evil acts to accomplish a desired goal. If they’ll allow this to happen to innocent children, what do you think they would do to Americans? Captain Quinn and others are facing disciplinary proceedings, sometimes ruin, for doing something about these egregious crimes by our so-called Afghan allies. They did the right thing and are now being punished for it.
After righteously beating the crap out of the perv, Captain Quinn was relieved of command and removed from Afghanistan. He has since left the military. Now, four years later, the military is trying to get rid of Sgt. First Class Charles Martland, a Special Forces member who assisted in beating up the Afghani commander. They are trying to force him to retire even though he is a decorated hero. A new policy of getting rid of soldiers with infractions is being called upon to justify pushing Martland out. The Army is contending that Martland had a duty to look the other way. You’ve got to be freaking kidding me! These men should have been commended for what they did, instead they are being punished and the child-raping commander was promoted – just unbelievable. The Army is weaseling out and saying they can’t comment because of the Privacy Act. Oh, bull crap!
Another Lance Corporal recalled the day that he walked into a room on the base and saw three or four men lying on the floor with children between them. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what they were doing to those kids underneath the sheets.
The military’s policy of letting these rapists have their fill of local children has really ticked off the villagers. By the summer of 2011, Captain Quinn and Sergeant Martland, both Green Berets on their second tour in northern Kunduz Province, began to receive severe and alarming complaints about the Afghan Local Police units they were training and supporting. The very first thing they heard was that one of the militia commanders had raped a 14 or 15 year-old girl who he spied working in the fields. Quinn took it to the provincial police chief, who put the the rapist in jail for one day; then he made the victim marry her attacker. That’s Afghani justice for you. Welcome to Shariah Law.
Every time there was an incident, Quinn would lecture the Afghan commanders on human rights. That had no effect. Another commander stole his men’s wages to use on dancing boys. Then yet another commander murdered his 12 year-old daughter for kissing a boy – it was an honor killing. There were no repercussions for these actions.
Things came to a head in September of 2011, when a bruised and beaten Afghani woman came to the military base with her son. He was limping and obviously hurt. She related how an Afghani police commander, Abdul Rahman, had kidnapped her son, chained him to a bed and used him as a sex slave. When she went to demand his freedom, she was beaten. Eventually, he was released, but the woman was terrified it would happen again. Her son was good looking and coveted by the commanders as a play thing.
Quinn summoned Rahman and confronted him about the abduction and assault. The guy admitted what he had done and acted like it was of no consequence. When Quinn started talking to him about his deviant behavior, the animal laughed and that was when he got the personal touch. “I picked him up and threw him onto the ground,” Mr. Quinn said. Sergeant Martland joined in. “I did this to make sure the message was understood that if he went back to the boy, that it was not going to be tolerated,” Mr. Quinn recalled.
Sgt. Martland received a Bronze Star for his valor during a Taliban ambush. Both of these guys are heroes all the way. Martland penned a letter to the Army saying that he and Quinn “felt that morally we could no longer stand by and allow our A.L.P. to commit atrocities,” referring to the Afghan Local Police. Martland is set to be involuntarily discharged on November 1st because of the beat down delivered to the Afghan Local Police commander in 2011. You know… the one who allegedly raped a boy and then beat his mother for telling the US military.
It appears to be policy now that our military command structure is condoning child rape and abuse as ‘cultural’ and putting the desires of monsters before the welfare of the innocent. Three Marines are dead because of that policy as well. Not to mention the screams of those boys that will haunt those soldiers for the rest of their days. This goes beyond despicable and right on into monstrously evil. Buckley’s father is suing the military for more information, while our leaders try to sweep this under the rug.
Americans should ask themselves… what if that were my child that was being raped? What if that was my son gunned down on a military base because of Marxist political correctness and appeasement of our enemies? When do we start doing the right thing again as Americans and how long will we let evil be committed in our name? This is not who we are as Americans and someone has to put a stop to it, both here at home and abroad. Not only for our soldiers, but for those children screaming in the dark of night.
Green Beret Discharged for Trying to Protect Muslim Boy From Child Rapist
By: Dave Gibson
The Obama administration is discharging Sgt. 1st Class Charles Martland, an 11-year veteran of the U.S. Army’s Green Berets. The highly-decorated soldier who spent two tours of duty in Afghanistan, will be “involuntary discharged” from the Army by Nov. 1, 2015.
So, just how did Sgt. Martland, a Bronze Star recipient, get on the bad side of Obama’s Defense Department?
Fox News reported:
One day in early September 2011 at their remote outpost, a young Afghan boy and his Afghan-Uzbek mother showed up at camp. The 12-year-old showed the Green Berets where his hands had been tied. A medic took him to a back room for an examination with an interpreter, who told them the boy had been raped by another commander by the name of Abdul Rahman.
After learning of the meeting, Rahman allegedly beat the boy’s mother for reporting the crime. It was at this point, the Green Berets had had enough. [Lt. Daniel] Quinn and Martland went to confront Rahman.
“He confessed to the crime and laughed about it, and said it wasn’t a big deal. Even when we patiently explained how serious the charge was, he kept laughing,” Quinn said.
The outraged soldiers reportedly physically attacked the Afghani child molester, and the commander walked away with only a few bruises after the incident.
Martland and Quinn were actually taken off of their original mission at this point and sent to another region of Afghanistan. Both men were eventually sent home before their deployment was scheduled to end.
Quinn has since left the Army.
In February 2015, the Army conducted a “Qualitative Management Program” review board, and ordered that Martland be “involuntary discharged” from the Army by Nov. 1, 2015.
Of course, child rape is as much a part of Muslim culture, as is baseball to Americans.
“We had been hearing for months about raping in our province, not just in Afghanistan,” Lt. Quinn told Fox News.
In fact, in 2012, Pentagon lawyers, at the request of the Obama administration drafted an Army manual which forbade any criticism of child molestation by troops serving in Muslim countries.
The 75-page handbook stated troops should avoid “making derogatory comments about the Taliban, advocating women’s rights, any criticism of pedophilia, directing any criticism towards Afghans, mentioning homosexuality and homosexual conduct” or “anything related to Islam,” Judicial Watch reported.
In a letter to Defense Secretary Ashston Carter, U.S. Rep. Duncan Hunter said:
SFC Martland acknowledged he was wrong to strike the ALP (Afhgan Local Police) commander, but according to SFC Martland, he and others felt they could no longer stand by and allow the ALP to commit atrocities. To intervene was a moral decision, and SFC Martland and his Special Forces team felt they had no choice but to respond.
Thus far, the Obama administration has yet to respond to Rep. Hunter’s request that Sgt. Martland be allowed to stay in the Army, and the Green Beret is facing a discharge which could come at any time now.
Meanwhile, our tax dollars are paying the salaries of child rapists in Afghanistan.
As Obama stated in his book, “Dreams From My Father,” he “will stand with Muslims!”
The Clinton Record on Libya
By: Kenneth Timmerman
Accuracy in Media
Exclusive to Accuracy in Media
The emails show more than you might think
On August 21, 2011, a top aide to Hillary Clinton penned a memo lauding his boss for steering U.S. policy in Libya, aimed at convincing the media of her accomplishments as Secretary of State.
“HRC has been a critical voice on Libya in administration deliberations, at NATO, and in contact group meetings—as well as the public face of the U.S. effort in Libya. She was instrumental in securing the authorization, building the coalition, and tightening the noose around Qadhafi and his regime,” Clinton aide Jake Sullivan wrote.
Sullivan’s memo to Mrs. Clinton’s inner circle is, of course, embarrassing today, which is one reason you are not reading about it on the front pages of The New York Times or The Washington Post.
But that’s not the only reason.
The memo, as well as other critical State Department correspondence, was withheld from multiple committees in Congress that have been investigating the September 11, 2012 attacks in Benghazi that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, State Department communications officer Sean Smith, and two former Navy Seals then working on contract to the CIA, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.
It finally surfaced on May 22, 2015, in response to a subpoena from the Select Committee on Benghazi chaired by South Carolina Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy. That was six months after Gowdy’s initial request to the State Department for all documents relating to Benghazi, and more than two-and-a-half years after a similar request from the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which initiated its investigation into Benghazi just days after the attacks.
In Sullivan’s memo, Mrs. Clinton was the driving force in getting the Russians to drop opposition to a UN-imposed no fly zone on Qadhafi’s Libya. She alone got Turkey, Qatar and Jordan to join the coalition military operations and to provide critical support to the anti-Qadhafi forces.
To convince skeptical allies to embrace her policies, Sullivan noted that Mrs. Clinton had traveled to Paris, London, Berlin, Rome, Abu Dhabi, Addis Ababa and Istanbul. She visited with “House Democrats and Senate Republicans to persuade them not to de-fund the Libya operation.”
Sullivan’s memo provided background for media appearances by Secretary Clinton in the ensuing months, including a famous encounter with a TV news reporter in Afghanistan, just three days after Mrs. Clinton’s October 2011 visit to Libya to proclaim victory against the then-still-missing Libyan dictator.
In video outtakes, Clinton aide Huma Abedin hands the Secretary a Blackberry, with information that Colonel Qadhafi has been killed, apparently just hours after Mrs. Clinton’s brief visit to the country.
“We came, we saw, he died,” Mrs. Clinton joked.
In short, without Mrs. Clinton’s vigorous intervention, Qadhafi would still be in power, Libya would still be a country, and the jihadis who now own the place would be toast. And, of course, Chris Stevens, Smith, Doherty and Woods would still be alive.
After the attacks, Mrs. Clinton quickly forgot her leading role on Libya, sending a clueless Susan Rice to the Sunday talk shows to be the “public face” of the Obama administration’s Libya policy.
In her only public appearances to address what happened in Benghazi, she portrayed herself as a disengaged onlooker, called upon to pick up the pieces when the hired help failed to get things right. “[It] was very disappointing to me that the [Accountability Review Board (ARB)] concluded there were inadequacies and problems in the responsiveness of our team here in Washington to the security requests that were made by our team in Libya. And I was not aware of that going on. It was not brought to my attention,” she told the House Foreign Affairs committee in January 2013.
She reminded House and Senate panels in January 2013 that the State Department’s ARB, which she appointed, had determined that the failures in Benghazi were entirely the responsibility of lower level officials, even though Libya was among the top ten most dangerous postings in the world at the time of the attacks. The Washington Post’s Glenn Kessler busily helped to reinforce that fiction in a “fact-checking” blog aimed to show that there were simply too many cables going in and out of the State Department for a busy Secretary to see all of them.
Interestingly, in the approximately 300 Clinton emails the State Department has released so far, there is no record of Mrs. Clinton’s original request to her staff to draft a memo lauding her achievements in Libya. Did Sullivan simply dream up the idea and forward it up the chain of command to see if it would please his boss? Or was Mrs. Clinton’s request for these talking points one of the 30,000 “personal” emails the former Secretary of State deleted as irrelevant to her official duties?
Mrs. Clinton’s chief of staff Cheryl Mills forwarded Sullivan’s August 2011 memo to a second private Hillary email address. Remember how she insisted that she had just one private email account? The memo included a note that said, “Here’s the memo.” That sounds an awful lot like, “Here’s the memo you requested.”
Hillary sent it on to her personal assistant with the instruction, “Pls print for me.”
This type of exchange gets repeated many times in the Clinton emails released so far, suggesting that Mrs. Clinton was not given to making substantive comments via email, or that she deleted material that is relevant to the House Select Committee on Benghazi and is therefore guilty of obstructing justice. The other possibility is that the State Department Freedom of Information office is inexplicably dragging its feet in clearing Mrs. Clinton’s correspondence, even though the delay casts Mrs. Clinton in an embarrassing light.
Judicial Watch and other watchdog organizations—including this author—had been trying to get Mrs. Clinton’s emails and other U.S. government documents relevant to the Benghazi attacks for the past two-and-a-half years without success until the subpoena from the Select Committee on Benghazi compelled a response.
Now, thanks to a federal court order in Washington, DC, compelling the State Department to produce additional documents it previously had said did not exist or were properly categorized as classified, we can now put Mrs. Clinton’s emails into a broader context.
As the first reports of the attacks on Benghazi were whizzing through the State Department Operations Center, bouncing off the computers of lower level employees, one is impressed by their professionalism.
For example, the British security firm that had the contract to guard the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi sent several ungrammatical missives through a State Department contact to update him on what was happening during the attacks.
Dylan Davies, one of the contractors working for the security firm, was apparently holed up in his hotel room (not at the scene of the Compound leading a daring rescue attempt, as he told CBS’ 60 Minutes), with no information at 11:55 p.m. local time—by which time, Ambassador Stevens and Sean Smith were dead, the CIA contractors led by Ty Woods had driven the attackers away from the burning diplomatic compound, and evacuated back to the CIA Annex.
A half hour later, Davies sent a second report, claiming there had been “no casualties,” and relaying a hearsay report from his “Benghazi facilitator,” who claimed that sources on the street were telling him the attack was either a September 11th anniversary attack, or caused by an Internet movie “disrespecting Mohammed.”
In relaying those reports, the State Department’s Command Center cautioned that they should be “taken with a grain of salt as the Employee may not be aware of the extent of the situation.”
And yet, less than four hours later—with no other independent reporting that had been released—Hillary Clinton issued her statement blaming the attacks on an Internet video.
What happened in the meantime? Who pushed the idea of the Internet video?
The short answer is that:we still don’t know. Either Mrs. Clinton destroyed the emails and other documents showing how she latched onto a report her own specialists had rejected as hearsay, or perhaps the Archangel Gabriel whispered in her ear while she had her head in a closet in her 7th floor office suite.
Several emails released to Judicial Watch show the intense involvement of the Bureau of Public Affairs in scouring the Internet for information on the attacks, but nothing to suggest the Secretary of State was asking the intelligence community what they knew.
At 9:30 p.m,—just 40 minutes before Mrs. Clinton issued her official statement blaming the attacks on a YouTube video—Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs Dana Shell Smith sent out a request to her reporting officers to find information “in the aftermath of today’s demonstrations at Embassy Cairo.” For whatever reason, her request failed to mention Benghazi.
Rebecca Brown Thompson, head of a State Department media office called the “Rapid Response Unit” (reminiscent of the Clinton campaign “war room”), responded by sending snippets from Facebook postings gleaned by Arabic language media analysts.
“I see a variety of responses spanning from conspiracy theories (that is what the Americans and Israelis are doing on purpose to hurt Arabs and Muslims, they financed the offensive movie), to those who condemn the attacks as ‘UnIslamic and barbaric,’” one analyst reported.
Two hours after Mrs. Clinton issued the statement blaming the attacks on the “inflammatory material posted on the Internet,” a second Arabic media analyst tasked with justifying that statement found a lone tweet about the film, but also reported that “some Twitter users in Libya and Egypt are spreading reports that the attacks in Libya may not be related to the infamous film but to the killing of Al Qaeda’s second in command, who is Libyan.”
The “infamous” film, which was much less well known in Libya than in Egypt, became the subject of a scurrilous account appearing the very next morning that was penned by Max Blumenthal, son of the infamous Sid “Vicious” Blumenthal who was advising Mrs. Clinton. It was picked up and amplified in a second attack blog posted at 6:56 a.m. the same morning, suggesting that the real blame for the attacks in Cairo and Benghazi fell on Mitt Romney and his “extremist” backers who produced this YouTube video in the first place.
Once information from the professionals rose to the level of Jake Sullivan, Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills in Clinton’s office, it just seemed to disappear, replaced with a weird concoction of politics, public relations and outright fantasy, such as the YouTube video concoction or the Sid Blumenthal “intelligence” reports. (When Mrs. Clinton sent those around to the professional diplomats, the comments she received in response were rarely complimentary.)
The 300 recently released Clinton emails give the impression that the 7th floor of the State Department was inhabited by a bunch of grad students, pretending to be government officials.
The most tragic example of the apparent ignorance of how the State Department and the federal government actually worked appeared in Mrs. Clinton’s order to not engage the Foreign Emergency Support Team (FEST), an interagency team on 24/7 stand-by alert, that had been created to respond to just such an emergency as the Benghazi attacks.
Counterterrorism Bureau official Mark Thompson, who helped to establish the FEST after the 1998 Africa embassy attacks, testified at length before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee about this on May 8, 2013.
The Judicial Watch emails include a frustrated note he sent to the State Department Operations Center at 9:01 p.m. on the night of the attacks, complaining that Secretary Clinton was trying to get the FBI to send an evidence response team to Libya, when “the State (CT) led Foreign Emergency Support Team (FEST) would include those folks, along with experts from other agencies. We should avoid multiple requests for assistance and rely on the comprehensive FEST approach.”
In his Congressional testimony, Thompson said he had tried to get Mrs. Clinton’s office and the White House to approve activating the FEST as soon as he first learned about the attacks from the State Operations Center, but was told “it was not the right time and it was not the team that needed to go right then.”
The redacted portions of Thompson’s email undoubtedly included a reference to the heavily-armed special operations component of the FEST whose job would be to secure the facility under attack. Had Secretary Clinton not told the FEST to stand down early on, there’s a chance they might have arrived in Benghazi before Woods and Doherty were killed in the 5 a.m. mortar attack the next morning.
At the very least, they would have been able to secure the compounds and gather evidence on the spot, instead of waiting three weeks as the FBI was ultimately forced to do.
Mrs. Clinton’s aversion to any overt U.S. military presence in Libya was well-known at U.S. Africa Command, which had been supplying the ambassador’s security detail up until just weeks before the attacks. “We were not allowed to wear uniforms outside the embassy compound, not even our boots,” the head of Stevens’ U.S. Special Forces security detail told me. “People high up at State resented like Hell us being there and doing what we did.”
And in the end, those same people ordered the Ambassador’s Special Forces security detail to leave Libya—with disastrous consequences.
