Earlier this month, a Pentagon inspector general reported that several troops had been told to “ignore” any signs of Afghan security forces sexually abusing children, though the report insisted this was not a “formal guidance” from the Pentagon leadership.
A far more specific report from the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), however, will not see the light of day at all if the Pentagon has anything to say about it, with the military leadership saying it needs to remain classified.
Senate officials, who requested the SIGAR inquiry in the first place, noted that the military was very opposed to having a second inquiry going separate from the internal inspector general probe. That’s unsurprising, as the Pentagon tends to be unhappy with SIGAR’s vocal criticism of the military’s misdeeds.
Pentagon officials are defending the decision to classify the SIGAR report, but offering no excuse for doing so, rather insisting that they want the focus to be on the much tamer report from two weeks ago.
Child sex abuse has been a recurring problem in the Afghan military since the 2001 US occupation began. US officials are loathe to see the Afghan military’s abuses too highly publicized, and this is seen as a continuation of that effort to cover up their crimes.

Please just remember that Delaware’s age of consent to marry was EIGHT in the 1890s and at least three girls of ten years have married recently in Tennessee, and the current age to marry in Massachusetts is 12. Do not play the Muslim age of consent to marry EVER if you are a US citizen half of the US states have a very young ability to marry! (under 14). Fact is that these children are male being molested by males, with the complete complicity of US Commanders! That the leaders in the Pentagon are trying to hide it is the complicity and they should be CHARGED as well! There are US laws that allow their charging for such matters!
The Pentagon’s desire and lame excuses to keep the SIGAR report under cover serves only one purpose: to keep the American public ignorant about what the US military/government is doing in Afghanistan and what the Afghan military/government they are shielding are doing while being supported by the USG.
One sure way to keep the game on track is to keep the American people uninformed.
