Lance Cpl. Gregory Buckley Jr. was fatally shot in 2012. He was a United States Marine. However, before he was killed, he told his father that at night, he and his fellow soldiers had to sit and listen to little boys scream from being raped by Afghan officers… and under Barack Obama’s leadership, they were not allowed to interfere.
“At night we can hear them screaming, but we’re not allowed to do anything about it,” according to Gregory Buckley Sr., the young man’s father, speaking of what his son told him. “My son said that his officers told him to look the other way because it’s their culture.”
This is not the first we have heard of this. In August of this year, Pamela Geller reported that Sgt. 1st Class Charles Martland, a highly decorated Green Beret, was being kicked out of the Army after he shoved an Afghan police commander, who was accused of raping a young boy and beating up his mother when she reported the incident.
“He confessed to the crime and laughed about it, and said it wasn’t a big deal,” Daniel Quinn, a West Point graduate and the team leader of the detachment sent to Kunduz, told Fox News of the Afghan police commander’s actions. “Even when we patiently explained how serious the charge was, he kept laughing. As a man, as a father of a young boy myself at the time, I felt obliged to step in to prevent further repeat occurrences.”
“We had been hearing for months about raping in our province, not just in Afghanistan,” he added.
Congress at least showed some bit of concern in attempting to stand up for Mr. Martland. “I am once again dismayed by the Army’s actions in this case,” Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., wrote in a letter to Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter.
“It’s sad to think that a child rapist is put above one of our elite military operators. Sergeant Martland was left with no other choice but to intervene in a bad situation. … The Army should stand up for what’s right and should not side with a corrupt Afghan police officer,” Hunter added.
However, as we have reported before, this is nothing new in Islam. To advance the jihad, anything is permissible, including sodomy. But Islam has a long history of sodomy and pedophilia, which Walid Shoebat has documented.
If Barack Obama will not be held accountable for how the men who serve in the US military are treated for seeking to be valiant on the behalf of young children, then Congress is of no good to us anymore. Frankly, I think they have become a joke as they are not interested in following the Constitution nor upholding their oath of office any more than the usurper-in-chief.
However, no US serviceman should face being ejected from the service for upholding a morally upright position when it comes to the protection of the innocent when he is able to do so.
