The State Department in its 2013 human rights report on Afghanistan said the sexual abuse of boys, or bacha baazi, is on the rise in the region, with the practice becoming common in Kabul.
The practice of bacha baazi (dancing boys)which involved powerful or wealthy local figures and businessmen sexually abusing young boys who were trained to dance in female clotheswas on the rise, the State Department said in its human rights report.
The report noted an increase in rapes during the year, with most victims being children. In fact, sexual abuse of children reached an all-time high, according to the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission (AIHRC).

How can it be on the rise? Its Afghanistan. Its endemic.
Well, Karzai just interfered with Barry’s plans so there ya go. NOW someone cares.
nothing new. Should have obliterated the place and everyone in it long ago.
It’s on the rise in the west due to tolerance
Doesn’t our administration support this kind of deviancy? They’re forcing it on Uganda right now.
True it isn’t new. It is somewhat ironic that it’s coming out of a State Department “run” by people such as Kerry.
Have you seen what goes on in schools? Of course they support it
Same as it ever was.
On another thread we were just talking about the rampant abuse of children in our Western Societies (and no country is exempt from this). It just turns out that Afghanistan is just as evil, if not more so, than many in Western nations.
JERSEY (UK):Children were loaned to rich paedophile yachtsmen
Send in the clowns. Kerry can handle this one.
It’s just love.....who are we to judge? /s
I wonder how in the world Ms. Hunter got this information.
Afghanistan is a MESS, politically, economically and socially. So how does Ms. Hunter decide to publish this?
It is SO incendiary and OBVIOUSLY meant to provoke and demean.
And, more to the point, how in the world does our State Department know this? How do they know this to be true?
It's garbage to rile up the people. Garbage in; garbage out. Not a good thing for our State Department to publish.
Send in the clowns??? Lol. YOU are dating yourself. But then, so am I.
From the Internet: "Send in the Clowns" is a song written by Stephen Sondheim for the 1973 musical A Little Night Music, an adaptation of Ingmar Bergman's film Smiles of a Summer Night.
It’s been reported many times by our own servicemen. It makes them sick to even be there ... that they are supporting so-called “allies” like that. It’s a very well known practice.
This is an ingrained part of their culture. They are a depraved sickening bunch of 7th Century perverts. We need to get the Heck out of there and let them get back to killing and raping each other with great abandonment.
We need to flee Sodom and let it stay Sodom? never mind allowing the Taliban back in?
Is Clinton on tour again?
Satan calls the tune in that part of the world,uses Islam as a cover to do it.
Islam is Satan.
