Report Say U.S. Troops Told to Ignore Child Abuse by Afghan Allies

Washington, September 22 (RHC)-- U.S. soldiers have come forward to describe how they were ordered to ignore child sexual abuse by allies in Afghanistan, even when the abuse occurred on U.S. bases.

The New York Times reports superiors told soldiers to "look the other way" when Afghan colleagues abused boys because "it’s their culture."

In one case, Dan Quinn, a former Special Forces captain, was relieved of his command for beating up an Afghan militia commander for keeping a boy chained to his bed as a sex slave.
