U.S. Soldiers Told To Ignore Child Sex Abuse By Afghan "Allies" - New York Times Report

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.'”
"...it's their culture"?!
What it IS: It's LOOKING THE OTHER WAY In The Face Of Heinous CHILD ABUSE / HUMAN Rights Abuses!  It's Turning A Deaf Ear To The Screams Of Children.
That's It, folks! I found my line...They just crossed it!
I'm off to let ‪#‎POTUS‬, Congress, Military Commanders, EVERYBODY Know That The AMERICAN (?) Practice Of ARMING PEDOPHILES and Looking The Other Way As They SEXUALLY TORTURE CHILDREN Is... Unconscionable & Unforgivable.
