US Mission in Afghanistan: Homosexual Boy Sale Edition

The “publish” button had barely been pressed on the latest Lair posting about Keyser’s incomprehension of the reason why the US is in Afghanistan, mind when all of a sudden Keyser discovers that PBS has clarified all of his doubts. Here’s the blurb about the April 20 episode of Frontline:

In Afghanistan today, ailment in the midst of war and endemic poverty, health an ancient tradition–banned when the Taliban were in power–has re-emerged across the country. It’s called Bacha Bazi, translated literally as “boy play.” Hundreds of boys, some as young as eleven, street orphans or boys bought from poor families by former warlords and powerful businessmen, are dressed in woman’s clothes, taught to sing and dance for the entertainment of male audiences, and then sold to the highest bidder or traded among the men for sex. With remarkable access inside a Bacha Bazi ring operating in Northern Afghanistan, Najibullah Quraishi, an Afghan journalist, investigates this practice, still illegal under Afghan law, talking with the boys, their families, and their masters, exposing the sexual abuse and even murders of the boys, and documenting how Afghan authorities responsible for stopping these crimes are sometimes themselves complicit in the practice.

Well, smack Keyser’s ass and call him a sodomite! Who knew that NAMBLA had taken over the NSA and was directing to the US military to open up the floodgates of pedophile auctions? At any rate, that’s about as plausible an explanation of US aims as any.

Anyhoo, here’s a foretaste (as it were) of the Frontline offering.

  1. This is news?

    I remember some British publication back in 2001 (yes, right at the beginning) gleefully pointing out that the Republicans (as the British journalist saw it) with their shock and awe had just restored Kandahar to its pre-Taliban position as homosexual prostitution capital of south Asia.

    By the way,the video screen above is dark and imprinted with the words “Sorry this video is not available in your region for rights restrictions.” I hadn’t even tried to play it! Sodomy videos not cleared for East Asia?
