Pentagon Official Admitted Off Record that Afghan Allies were Sexually Abusing Children

As the Free Beacon [1] reported, this is disturbing:

A senior Pentagon official admitted to theĀ Washington Free Beacon late Monday that Afghan forces allied with U.S. troops in the war-torn country have been caught sexually abusing children.

The admission comes on the heels of reports that the Obama administration has been punishing U.S. soldiers who blew the whistle on this sexual abuse.

U.S. lawmakers early Monday expressed shock and outrage [2] over the report and called on Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Join Chiefs of Staff, to immediately address a policy of ordering U.S. troops to ignore such sexual abuse.
