Explicit Photos Fan U.N. Sex Scandal
Los Angeles Times ^ | 2/12/05 | Maggie Farley

UNITED NATIONS — A scandal about the sexual abuse of Congolese women and children by U.N. officials and peacekeepers intensified Friday with the broadcast of explicit pictures of a French U.N. worker and Congolese girls and his claim that there was a network of pedophiles at the U.N. mission in Congo.

ABC News' "20/20" program showed pictures taken from the computer of a French U.N. transport worker. The hard drive reportedly contained thousands of photos of him with hundreds of girls. In one frame, a tear can be seen rolling down the cheek of a victim.

The news report coincided with the U.N.'s new "zero- contact" rule banning any interaction between U.N. soldiers and locals in Congo.

The staffer, Didier Bourguet, 41, is facing charges of sexual abuse and rape in France. His lawyer, Claude de Boosere- Lepidi, said in court last week that there was a network of U.N. personnel who had sex with underage girls and that Bourguet had engaged in similar activity in a previous U.N. posting in the Central African Republic.

These people call themselves peacekeepers, when in fact all they want is a long holiday and a chance to fool around with our women

The above quote is from a government spokesman in Eritrea, a somewhat benevolent East African dictatorship which has been esentially forced to allow the presence of peacekeepers. Eritrea seems to be one of the few countries that actually cares enough about its people to kick out peacekeepers found to engage in dishonorable romantic involvements.

And to think that we still insist on remaining a member of this corrupt organization. What does it say about us?

The only positive aspect is that this disgraceful behavior by UN employees could serve as another in the long list of reasons the US should get out of the UN.

His mother must be so proud... but then, I think she may have had a premonition about her peculiar offspring. Why else would she have named him "Didier?"

I'm sure these photos will be plastered all over CBS and the NY Times day in, day out - like the photos from Abu Grahaib...

DOUBT IT...

Given the MSM response to the sexual abuse committed by a small percentage of perverted (and almost exclusively homosexual) priests,

and in light of the sexual abuse committed by a small percentage of perverted UN officials,

one wonders if the MSM will now ask that ordinary citizens (or laymen) be allowed a leadership role in the UN, that the UN be "held accountable", and its leaders shamed and forced to resign.

Where is the hue and cry?

I don't expect the UN to punish their employees - they all seem to have diplomatic immunity. Even some of their ex or retired employees like Scott Ritter up here in Delmar, NY can engage in teenage sex recruitment and the local DA will refuse to prosecute for fear of UN immunity considerations.

Their solution of course, will be putting Bubba in charge of the UN.

Sometimes known as putting the fox in charge of the henhouse.

Isn't that a great - free for all criminals/pedophiles organization for 10's of thousands of creeps -

Reason number 789 to find this corrupt Anti-American conglomeration of pedophiles a new home. How does Haiti sound? No, that's too close....Zimbabwe sounds better.

If you have not already done so, please sign the petition to get the UN out of the USA. Let's help relocate these anti-American thugs to some 3rd world shithole where they belong.

Buju had his own exposure to the U.N. problem when he said he witnessed two Pakistani U.N. troops sexually assault a teenage girl in a church convent one morning last spring

TROP alert.

Sadly, the reason this occurs ins't just because of the usual UN malfesance and corruption. Nope, look at the composition of most UN peacekeeper contingents these days; they're from the third world. Let's face it, most of these armies act this way in their OWN countries, why would they act any diffenrent anywhere else.

Notice something different in Iraq? Simple, it's the fact that we're in charge and we're keeping dicipline, and that most of the troops are from the first world or former communist bloc (where they're more liable to try and make a buck off the supply truck or sell Levis off the back of a Humvee than anything else).
