A U.S. defense contractor has been caught – again – in a child sex scandal, this time over bacha bazi – the Afghan cultural tradition of "boy play" – after employees allegedly hired young boys to dress up in women's clothing and dance and potentially to be sold for sex
The U.S. State Department has called the Afghan practice of owning "dancing boys" a "culturally sanctioned form of male rape."
"How can you fall in love if you can't see her face," one 29-year-old Afghan man asked. "We can see t
“Bacha bazi” — banned under the Taliban, but now making a big comeback in Afghanistan — involves forcing small boys dressed in women’s clothing to dance in front of howling men. After the dancing, the boys are auctioned off to the highest bidder for rape.
“The entertainment for the evening [at the party] was bacha bazi boys, whose pimps were paid so the boys would sing and dance for the recruits and then be raped by them afterward,” the organization said. “That's your tax dollars at work — fighting terrorism and extremism in [Afghanistan] by trafficking little boys for sex with cops-in-training.”
...served as a Commissioner in The Citizens' Commission on 9-11. On October 26, 2004, she was among 100 prominent Americans and 40 family members of those who were killed on 9/11 who signed the 9/11 Truth Movement statement, calling for new investigations into unexplained aspects of the 9/11 events. McKinney was re-elected to the House in November 2004, following her successor's run for Senate. In Congress, she advocated unsealing records pertaining to the CIA's role in assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., and the murder of Tupac Shakur and continued to criticize the Bush Administration over the 9/11 attacks. She supported anti-war legislation and introduced articles of impeachment against President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
Cynthia McKinney Remains Imprisoned in Israel After Gaza-Bound Boat Is Seized
Published July 02, 2009
"We were in international waters on a boat delivering humanitarian aid to people in Gaza when the Israeli Navy ships surrounded us and illegally threatened us, dismantled our navigation equipment, boarded and confiscated the ship," she said in a statement, adding that they were immediately taken into custody.
McKinney was held at the Givon immigration detention center in Ramle, until she was released on July 5. The Israeli government would have released McKinney and her fellow activists immediately had they signed deportation papers; however, McKinney at least initially refused to sign, arguing that she could not be sure of what the papers, written in Hebrew, said, and that the papers would require them to admit that they were in violation of Israel's blockade, which they deny. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Israeli officials stated that the "Palestinian Authority and the rest of the international community had agreed to the off-shore blockade to prevent arms smuggling into Gaza." The Palestinian Chronicle reports that such an agreement to the off-shore blockade never happened. "No Palestinians have agreed nor did the international community agree to a blockade of Gaza by land or Sea." On June 17, 2009, a group of United Nations agencies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) called for an end to Israel's blockade of the Gaza Strip.
On July 7, 2009, McKinney was deported to the United States

The main problem I have with these "security corporation" mercenary for profit outfits is the impunity in which they operate. The perps are almost never tried for their crimes in the countries in which the crimes are committed. More often than not, they get whisked off to the US and get fired from their jobs. The firing usually the only punishment they receive.
Dyncorp and Halliburton Sex Slave Scandal Won't Go Away
Rumsfeld's effort to shift the blame away from the hierarchy at Dyncorp and onto the Dyncorp employees was a blatant attempt to hide the fact that human trafficking and sex slavery is a practice condoned by companies like Dyncorp and Halliburton subsidiaries like KBR.
What else are we to assume in light of recent revelations cited in the Chicago Tribune that Halliburton subsidiary KBR and Dyncorp lobbyists are working in tandem with the Pentagon to stall legislation that would specifically ban trafficking in humans for forced labor and prostitution by U.S. contractors?
And the employees themselves that are burned for blowing the whistle, like Kathryn Bolkovac who was sacked for reporting on Dyncorp officials who were involved in the Bosnian sex trade.
If my head explodes, just from sheer frustration and outrage alone making my blood pressure shoot out the roof, will they consider me a terrorist?

Yet Another ATS member obsessed with "Government Corruption" explodes in Violence
hadriana, a member of notorious conspiracy theory website ATS has spontaneously exploded. This proves that mis-trust of government benevolence leads to violence. Among the obsessions revealed are the notions that "Rumsfeld is a liar" and that failed politician Cynthia McKinney was somehow smeared by the media. Detected also is a dangerous notion that main stream media outlets bury relevant stories of import in order to diffuse tension over "military-industrial-media criminal activities".
blah blah blah lets all mellow down and watch something entertaining.
