Sexparties statt Katastrophenhilfe: Rettungskräfte sollen in Haiti Orgien gefeiert haben
Mitarbeiter der Hilfsorganisation Oxfam sollen während ihres Einsatzes nach dem schweren Erdbeben in Haiti 2010 Sexorgien mit Prostituierten veranstaltet haben, berichtet die britische Tageszeitung Times unter Berufung auf einen internen Untersuchungsbericht der Hilfsorganisation aus dem Jahr 2011. Oxfam bestätigte, dass mehrere Mitarbeiter unter anderem wegen sexuellen Fehlverhaltens, Mobbings und Einschüchterung entlassen wurden oder ihre Posten niederlegten.

Darunter sei auch der Landes-Direktor. Das Verhalten sei „total inakzeptabel“ gewesen, teilte die Hilfsorganisation mit Sitz in Oxford mit.

Dem Times-Bericht zufolge sollen die Orgien in einer von Oxfam angemieteten Villa stattgefunden haben. „Sie schmissen große Partys mit Prostituierten. Diese Mädchen trugen Oxfam-T-Shirts, rannten halbnackt herum“, zitiert das Blatt einen Informanten, der ein entsprechendes Video gesehen haben will.

Dem Untersuchungsbericht zufolge könne „nicht ausgeschlossen werden“, dass Kinder sexuell ausgebeutet wurden, berichtet die Times. In Haiti ist Prostitution generell verboten. Zu Ermittlungsverfahren soll es laut Medienberichten aber nicht gekommen sein.

Oxfam teilte mit, aus den Vorfällen seien Konsequenzen gezogen worden, beispielsweise sei eine Hotline für anonyme Informanten eingerichtet worden. Wichtige Geldgeber wie die Europäische Union, die Weltgesundheitsorganisation und Agenturen der Vereinten Nationen seien in Kenntnis gesetzt worden. (dpa)

US Forces Leave Iraq: Military Presence Failed to Produce Desired Results

US Forces Leave Iraq: Military Presence Failed to Produce Desired Results

The US-led coalition is drawing down or „adjusting“ its military presence in Iraq. With ISIS on the ropes, the remaining forces will refocus on “policing, border control, and military capacity building.” A senior official close to Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has been reported to say that 60 percent of the US troops will be withdrawn. About 4,000 US personnel will remain as part of a training mission. There were 8,892 US troops in Iraq as of late September. The American soldiers are being shipped to Afghanistan, where  roughly 14,000 troops are already stationed.

It’s conspicuous that the move is taking place against the backdrop of the upcoming May elections in Iraq. The American withdrawal will boost the chances of the US-friendly prime minister, Haider al-Abadi. But rebuilding the country is a large order for that cash-strapped government. Much of the nation is in ruins. The US-led coalition has not done much to propel the process of reconstruction.

So, the contingent in Afghanistan will receive reinforcements. However, the situation hasn’t budged an inch since 2001. The Taliban movement has gained ground recently and is now active in 70 percent of the countryAccording to Randall Schriver, the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Asian and Pacific Security Affairs, the war in Afghanistan costs $45 billion annually. Republican Sen. Rand Paul has said that tens of billions are „just being thrown down a hatch in that country. All attempts to reboot the operation have ended in failure. Despite that, there seems to be no prospect of pulling the plug on the failed policy.

But fighting terrorists seems to be no longer the prime mission with  the focus now shifting to Russia and China.

What will be the outcome of this reduction in US forces? Iraq is preparing an operation to clear the mountainous area near the Iranian border where some anti-government armed groups are still active. The Iraqi government needs it to be secure before it starts transporting its oil from Kirkuk. According to Reuters, Iraq and Iran have agreed to swap up to 60,000 barrels per day of crude produced in Kirkuk for Iranian oil, which will be sent to southern Iraq. The oil is going to be transported by truck and the deal will boost Iran’s regional influence.

Last December, the Iraqi government announced plans to build a new 350-kilometer (220-mile) Kirkuk-Ceyhan (Turkey) oil pipeline to carry up to one million barrels a day. If that pans out, Turkey will see its regional influence grow. About the same time, Iraq reached a deal with China’s state-run Zhenhua Oil to develop the southern section of the East Baghdad oil field, which is believed to hold eight billion barrels. As one can see, Iraq’s leaders are wise enough not to put all their eggs into one basket.

Iraq has recently been turning to Russia for oil deals, military assistance, and nation building. Military cooperation between the two countries has been on the rise. The bilateral contacts indicate the Iraqi government’s desire to expand that relationship.

And the United States? It should be noted that the US troops are hardly safer in Iraq than in Afghanistan. The US had no serious political plan when Iraq was invaded in 2003 and there is no such thing as an Iraq policy now. It is one of those wars that never end. It’s easy to get in, but next to impossible to get out. Look around, it’s not difficult to find conflicts like that in many places today, such as Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Syria, you name it.

The US military presence around the world is mushrooming. Around 200,000 US troops are stationed in over 170 countries with no great victories to boast of. America is gradually pulling out of Iraq with no glory. The US is not popular in that country. Many Iraqis left the country after the US invasion, because of the massive security problems. Nor is America indispensable there. The Iraqi war was a costly military adventure that has produced many almost unsolvable problems.

In the same way, Washington may get involved in real fighting in Syria. For instance, with no proof to back up the allegation, the US insists that Syria’s government is using chemical weapons. The White House says Damascus would “pay a heavy price” if it were to carry out such an attack. Strikes against Syrian military infrastructure could lead to casualties among Iranian, Turkish, or Russian military personnel. That could also trigger a response…..

Afghanistan: US has become an investor in the country’s informal—tribal—justice system

März 10, 2012 1 Kommentar

Skandal!

As violence against women in Afghanistan spikes to its highest levels since the fall of the Taliban government, the US has become an investor in the country’s informal—tribal—justice system. In this ‚Special Report,‘ GlobalPost tells the painful stories of women who have been subjected to the tribal courts‘ brand of ‚justice‘: unfairly imprisoned, traded like property and often abused every step of the way.

Afghan women and the Rule of Law conundrum

Part Three: American money supports an antiquated and abuse-ridden system.

March 7, 2012 06:14

In December 2001, the US-led offensive forced the Taliban to scatter over the mountains into Pakistan and the international community rushed into Kabul with the best of intentions.

One of their primary goals was to reform the Afghan justice sector. And they waded in with a confidence bordering on arrogance, combined with a troubling disregard for the legal structures, however precarious, that were already in place.

In just a little over two years, Afghanistan had a new Constitution; there were training programs for judges and lawyers, and international organizations were making millions providing services to the US government in its quest to make sense of the muddle.

Ten years later, these efforts have become a nearly $1 billion “Rule of Law industry,” as one international legal specialist, who has spent several years in Afghanistan, dubbed the enterprise.

Exact figures are difficult to come by since there are multiple actors and programs involved in the “industry.” But a report by the US Congressional Research Service in November 2010 stated that total funding for “Rule of Law” from fiscal year 2002 through fiscal year 2010 was $904 million. That would mean more than $110 million per year on average has been spent in the last eight years on attempts to improve the justice system.

“When a girl is given or received in ba’ad, she is not really human anymore.”

~Shamsullah Ahmadzai, Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission

And it has largely been a failed effort, according to legal experts and human rights advocates in Afghanistan. The US did its best to prop up a justice system from the central government in Kabul but has more recently realized that the levels of corruption and incompetence in this national criminal justice system have made it nearly impossible to reform. And so the US has shifted its sights to the local tribal courts where the vast majority of criminal and civil cases are heard. This fiscal year about $15 million will go into efforts to work with these local structures.

But the effort is not without its problems: these tribal courts are all too often stacked against women, and persist in using traditional practices such as ba’ad, the bartering of women and girls as a way to resolve disputes among families.

Some of the beneficiaries of the “Rule of Law” industry largesse were Tetra Tech DPK Consulting and Checchi and Company Consulting, two companies that specialize in providing legal education services in the developing world. Both companies were contacted for this series, but declined to comment saying USAID discourages contractors from speaking with the media.

These companies have a great deal of expertise in working with developing societies, and both have sought to put the best face on what is, undoubtedly, a very difficult assignment.

Tetra Tech DPK Consulting, a company based in San Francisco, works with the formal (state) sector. According to its website, Tetra Tech DPK “furthers the rule of law in Afghanistan … by raising the legal awareness of citizens through its public outreach activities. Through carefully designed programs that promote human rights and access to justice, outdated attitudes and perceptions that in the past have hindered the development of a more open and just society are now slowly changing.”

Checchi, which is based in Washington, D.C., was given the task of working with the informal sector. It is similarly upbeat in its official materials. Its website proudly proclaims:

A woman in a burka walks through a market in a heavily populated Pashtun neighborhood on the outskirts of Kabul, Afghanistan, Dec. 19, 2011.
(Erin Trieb/VII)

“As implementing partner for this key component of USAID/Afghanistan’s new Rule of Law Stabilization Program, Checchi is working with the Afghan Government and Afghan NGOs to enable immediate access to justice through community-based dispute resolution mechanisms in districts in the southern and eastern parts of the country. Among other activities, Checchi advisors are working with community elders and relevant state actors to strengthen or re-establish the jirga and shura system for dispute resolution, as well as assisting with providing access to formal justice systems when appropriate.”

Despite the millions that have been disbursed, critics say corruption has persisted, and there is little hard evidence that substantive improvement is taking place. But with so many contractors making a profit, it seems to these critics that there is little incentive to measure what, if any, real advancement is being made.

“It has been a tremendously embarrassing waste of money,” said Rebecca Gang, who worked for two years as a consultant on Justice and Rule of Law at the Afghanistan Research and Evaluation Unit (AREU), an independent research institute based in Kabul. “Rule of law issues have been captured by the industry. The way the system has been designed, there is a negative incentive to improvement.”

As the years passed, and corruption became an ever more prevalent factor in any evaluation of the Afghan government, it became apparent to many that the reform of the justice system had failed.

Transparency International ranks Afghanistan as one of the most corrupt countries on earth, tied with Burma for second to last place. Only Somalia and North Korea place lower.

The courts are widely seen by the Afghan people as the embodiment of this corruption.

“There is a perception that justice is available to the highest bidder,” acknowledged one Western official, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The Afghan populace has responded by boycotting the state system almost entirely, falling back on centuries-old traditions. They settle disputes by turning to tribal elders, the “white beards” who are still widely respected in the country. They may be illiterate, and have very little understanding of the law, but their word is final.

The Liaison Office (TLO), a non-governmental research organization based in Kabul, maintains that the vast majority of cases still bypass the state system.

“According to our research, non-state justice systems predominate throughout the country,” said Peyton Cooke, a Program officer for TLO’s Justice Program. “Upwards of 90 percent of cases go through the informal system.”

The State Department has long been aware of this fact; in 2008 it issued a report on Rule of Law programs in Afghanistan citing similar statistics.

DynCorps – US Soldaten, ziehen ein Mord Spur der Vergewaltigung und Kinder Bordelle durch die Welt

Januar 14, 2011 9 Kommentare

DynCorps: mit dem Sex Kinder Sklaven Bordells, Kinder Handel in Bosnien und Afghanistan

 

Das ist eine ziemlich heftige Geschichte, welche von der Mainstream Presse bis heute unter dem Tisch gehalten wird. DynCorps ist erneut, wie zuvor in Bosnien, in den besonders üblen Kinder Prostitutions Handel verwickelt in 2009 und wohl davor in Afghanistan.

Afghanistan, war wohl der letzte Abschiebe Bahnhof, nach Albanien und Bosnien auch für die Deutschen Profi Verbrecher der Hilfs Organisationen, wenn man Alfred Horn, rund um die Kinderhilfe, der Steinmeier-Schröder Bande sieht, mit Bodo Hombach, was da so in Albanien auch mit dem Top Drogen Boss: Sokol Kociu lief, rund ums Kinderhaus Tirana, was unter der Schirmherrschaft von Doris Schröder-Köpf stand.
DynCorp und der Frauen Handel auf dem Balkan

http://www.dyn-intl.com/index.aspx

Ur Quelle

In Deutsch

In Filmen sind die grausamen Männer, die arme hilflose Frauen zur Prostitution zwingen, meist zwielichtige Gestalten mit vorzugsweise ausländischer Herkunft.

Dass auch Angestellte der Regierungen von unseren westlichen zivilisierten Demokratien solchem Zeitvertreib frönen, zeigte damals die Besetzung Bosniens.

Die amerikanische Söldnerfirma DynCorp wurde von der amerikanischen Armee und von der UNO in Bosnien als zivile Hilfskraft verpflichtet.

Dort beteiligten sich alsbald Mitarbeiter von Dyncorp am florierenden Mädchenhandel. Die Männer kauften sich junge Prostituierte aus den örtlichen Bordells, und hielten sie dann wie Sklaven:

“Das Gespräch unter den Mitarbeitern drehte sich um die Prostituierten, die man besaß – wie jung sie waren, wie gut sie im Bett waren, und was sie gekostet hätten.”

Dies hört DynCorp-Mitarbeiter Ben Johnston mit, und als er dann mithört wie ein besonders perverser Kollege prahlt, “mein Mädchen ist noch nicht mal 12″, beschließt er dagegen vorzugehen.
Johnston beschwerte sich in der Chefetage von DynCorp und bei der zuständigen Aufsichtsbehörde der US Army, aber ohne Erfolg. Stettdessen wird er von DynCorp gefeuert. Kathryn Bolkovac, eine andere Angestellte der Söldnerfirma, beschwert sich ebenfalls und wird auch gefeuert.

Beide gingen dann vor Gericht, und beide gewannen. Daraufhin feuerte DynCorp mindestens sieben in Bosnien stationierte Mitarbeiter, unter ihnen den Vorgesetzten des dortigen Lagers wegen der Vorwürfe des Frauenhandels.

Aber trotz der klaren Beweislage wurde bislang keiner der pädophilen Sklavenhalter vor Gericht gestellt:

“Wegen einer Kombination aus internationalen Verträgen, jurisdiktiven Schlupflöchern und bürokratischem Wirrwar können Mitarbeiter von privaten Söldnerfirmen wie DynCorp der Strafverfolgung entgehen, wenn sie die Verbrechen im Ausland begangen haben.”

Zum generellen Problem des Mädchenhandels in kriegsversehrten Gebieten sagt Human Rights Watch:

“Zwangsprostitution ist in Ländern, die sich im Wiederaufbau befinden, allgegenwärtig. Hauptgrund ist das massive Kontingent an unbegleiteten, hochbezahlten und männlichen Mitarbeitern aller möglicher internationaler Organisationen.”

Die eifrig geschickten Helfer sind also genau die, die den boomenden Mädchenhandel erst ermöglichen. Dies stellt Amnesty International auch in einem Report fest:

“Die Menge an NATO-geführten Friedenstruppen führte dazu, dass der Kosovo sich mit zwangsprostituierten Frauen füllte. Ein zuvor eher kleiner ‘Markt’ für Prostitution wurde so in eine große menschenhandelbasierte Industrie umgewandelt.

Die stationierten Friedenstruppen sorgen weiterhin für 80% des Umsatzes der Zuhälter, Bordellbesitzer und Mafiosi, die einheimische Mädchen entführen oder Frauen aus (anderen Ländern) einschleußen.”

Dem Report zufolge sind an den Geschäften Soldaten aus Amerika, Frankreich, Deutschland und Italien beteiligt.
Anfang 2004 gab die Abteilung der UN für Friedenssicherung zu, dass “die friedenssichernden Truppen zunehmend als Teil des Problems des Menschenhandels gesehen werden, und nicht als Lösung.”

Kinderprostitutions-Service für Dyncorp in Afghanistan aufgedeckt

von Redaktion @ 22:46. abgelegt unter Afghanistan

#Cablegate: Depesche #09KABUL1651 deckt auf, dass Afghanen für Mitglieder der Söldnerfirma Dyncorp in Kundus die Dienste von Kinderprostituierten Bereitgestellt haben:

On the Kunduz Regional Training Center (RTC) DynCorp event of April 11 (reftel), Atmar reiterated his insistence that the U.S. try to quash any news article on the incident or circulation of a video connected with it. He continued to predict that publicity would “endanger lives.” He disclosed that he has arrested two Afghan police and nine other Afghans as part of an MoI investigation into Afghans who facilitated this crime of “purchasing a service from a child.”

Aus der Depesche geht weiter hervor, dass die US-Regierung nach Erhalt der Information sofort alles Notwendige veranlasst hat. Die Journalistin, die ein Video von den Ereignissen hatte, wurde prompt erfolgreich dazu gedrängt, nichts darüber zu veröffentlichen und der Skandal erfolgreich vertuscht werden konnte.

So läuft das in der freien Welt: wenn bekannt würde, was die US-geführten Koalitionstruppen und ihre Söldner in Afghanistan so treiben, könnte das schließlich “die Sicherheit” gefährden.

Mein – Parteibuch

Press TV berichtete am heutigen Donnerstag unter Berufung auf Iran Newspaper on Network, dass amerikanische Besatzungssoldaten in der westafghanischen Provinz Farah Mädchen und Frauen in eine US-Basis verschleppt und dort mehrfach vergewaltigt haben. Eines der Mädchen starb einem medizinischen Bericht zufolge an Genitalverletzungen, die durch die Vergewaltigung hervorgerufen wurden.

Bisher ist nicht bekannt, dass die US-Armee Maßnahmen ergriffen hat, um die Vorwürfe zu untersuchen und die Täter zur Rechenschaft zu ziehen.

Dieser Fall wäre nicht der erste Fall, in dem US-Besatzer Kinder in Afghanistan zur Befriedigung ihrer sexuellen Gelüste missbrauchen. Mitarbeiter der US-Söldnerfirma DyCorp in Nordafghanistan hatten dort schon früher Dienstleistungen eines Kinderprostitutionsservice in Anspruch genommen. Dies wurde zwar zur Tatzeit erfolgreich geheimgehalten, ist jedoch durch eine geleakte Depesche des US-Außenministeriums Ende letzten Jahres öffentlich geworden.

Auch dass US-Besatzungssoldaten in der Vergangenheit bereits Menschen zu ihrer eigenen Belustigung tödlich gequält haben, ist inzwischen bestens bekannt. Im Irak hatten US-Soldaten zahlreiche Gefangene im Gefängnis Abu Ghraib zur Erlangung von sexuellen Lustgewinnen sadistisch zu Tode gefoltert und in Afghanistan haben US-Soldaten in der Vergangenheit bereits Menschen ermordet, um abgeschnittene Körperteile von ihnen als Trophäen zu sammeln.

Westliche Medien haben über die neuen Vorwürfe offenbar eine Nachrichtensperre verhängt, um die Unterstützung der Bevölkerung westlichen Ländern für den Krieg gegen Afghanistan nicht noch weiter sinken zu lassen. Kein westliches Medium hat über diese Vorwürfe bisher berichtet.

 

A damning dossier sent by Kathryn Bolkovac to her employers, detailing UN workers’ involvement in the sex trade in Bosnia, cost the American her job with the international police force.

She was sacked after disclosing that UN peacekeepers went to nightclubs where girls as young as 15 were forced to dance naked and have sex with customers, and that UN personnel and international aid workers were linked to prostitution rings in the Balkans.

After a two-year battle, an employment tribunal ruled yesterday that Ms Bolkovac was unfairly dismissed by DynCorp, an American company whose branch in Salisbury, Wiltshire, dealt with the contracts of the American officers working for the international police force in Bosnia. There will be a further hearing at Southampton to decide the amount of compensation DynCorp must pay Ms Bolkovac…

Bosnia: The United Nations, human trafficking and prostitution

By Tony Robson
21 August 2002

There is mounting evidence that the United Nations has carried out a cover-up of the role played by its personnel in human trafficking and prostitution in Bosnia—a trade that has grown astronomically since the establishment of the Western protectorate seven years ago.

An American woman who served with the International Police Task Force (IPTF) in Bosnia recently won a case of unfair dismissal against a US State Department sub-contractor, after she was sacked for reporting an alleged prostitution racket involving other serving officers.

Kathryn Bolkovac was an employee of DynCorp Technical Services, one of the US government’s top 25 service providers with 23,000 employees worldwide. In Bosnia DynCorp provides maintenance support for the US military, as well as recruiting American officers for the international police force through its UK subsidiary, DynCorp Aerospace Operations Ltd. DynCorp has earned $1 billion since 1995 for providing maintenance to the US military worldwide. The contract to provide recruitment for the IPTF is valued at $15 million.

The case against DynCorp Aerospace Operations Ltd was brought under the UK Public Interest Disclosure legislation, known as the “whistleblowers charter”, which protects employees who make disclosures about malpractice within their company. Bolkovac had been posted to Sarajevo in 1999 to investigate traffic in young women from Eastern Europe who were forced into prostitution.

“When I started collecting evidence from the victims of sex-trafficking, it was clear that a number of UN officers were involved from several different countries, including quite a few from Britain,” she said. “I was shocked, appalled and disgusted. They were supposed to be over there to help, but they were committing crimes themselves. But when I told the supervisors they didn’t want to know.”

Bolkovac first drew attention to the abuses in October 2000 in an email to DynCorp management. She was first demoted and then six months later sacked. On August 2, in a 21-page judgement, the Southampton Employment Tribunal found in favour of Bolkovac and against DynCorp Aerospace Operations Ltd. The company’s claim that her employment was terminated because of gross misconduct was firmly rejected. Evidence of falsifying time sheets was dismissed as “sketchy to the point of being non-existent”. Charles Twiss, the tribunal chairman stated, “We have considered DynCorp’s explanation of why they dismissed her and find it completely unbelievable. There is no doubt whatever that the reason for her dismissal was that she made a protected disclosure and was unfairly dismissed.”

Bolkovac is not the only employee of DynCorp to seek legal redress for unfair dismissal. An American aircraft maintenance technician, Ben Johnstone, filed a lawsuit against his sacking in 1999 after he also disclosed information about the involvement of co-workers and supervisors in the sex trade at the DynCorp hangar at Comanche Base, one of two US bases in Bosnia. The allegations included sex with minors, rape and buying and selling women for sex.

His allegations led to a raid on the base by the 48th Military Police Detachment on June 2, 2000. The operation by the US Army Criminal Investigation Division (CID) began to uncover evidence supporting the claims made by Johnstone. However, the investigation was wound up after the CID determined that, under the Dayton Agreement, UN officials and contractors enjoyed immunity. Two of the employees named by Johnstone and most heavily implicated in the abuses were sacked, but escaped criminal charges.

Johnstone was sacked the day before the raid for disciplinary reasons that were unsubstantiated—he merely received a letter of discharge for bringing “discredit to the company and the US Army while working in Tuzla, Bosnia-Hercegovina.” Since 1998, eight DynCorp employees have been sent home from Bosnia, three have been dismissed for using prostitutes, and none have been prosecuted.

Bolkovac made disclosures to the UN chief in Bosnia, Jacques Paul Klein, and the UN’s police commissioner in Bosnia in November 2000, but IPTF Deputy Commissioner Mike Steirs described her as “stressed and burned out” and her contact with the UN was terminated following her sacking.

..............................
4. (C) On June 23, Assistant Ambassador Mussomeli met with MOI Minister Hanif Atmar on a number of issues, beginning with the April 11 Kunduz RTC DynCorp investigation. Amb Mussomeli opened that the incident deeply upset us and we took strong steps in response. An investigation is on-going, disciplinary actions were taken against DynCorp leaders in Afghanistan, we are also aware of proposals for new procedures, such as stationing a military officer at RTCs, that have been introduced for consideration. (Note: Placing military officers to oversee contractor operations at RTCs is not legally possible under the currentDynCorp contract.) Beyond remedial actions taken, we still hope the matter will not be blown out of proportion, an outcome which would not be good for either the U.S. or Afghanistan. A widely-anticipated newspaper article on the Kunduz scandal has not appeared but, if there is too much noise that may prompt the journalist to publish.

5. (C) Atmar said he insisted the journalist be told that publication would endanger lives. His request was that the U.S. quash the article and release of the video. Amb Mussomeli responded that going to the journalist would give her the sense that there is a more terrible story to report. Atmar then disclosed the arrest of two Afghan National Police (ANP) and nine other Afghans (including RTC language assistants) as part of an MoI investigation into Afghan “facilitators” of the event. The crime he was pursuing was “purchasing a service from a child,” which in Afghanistan is illegal under both Sharia law and the civil code, and against the ANP Code of Conduct for police officers who might be involved. He said he would use the civil code and that, in this case, the institution of the ANP will be protected, but he worried about the image of foreign mentors. Atmar said that President Karzai had told him that his (Atmar’s) “prestige” was in play in management of the Kunduz DynCorp matter and another recent event in which Blackwater contractors mistakenly killed several Afghan citizens. The President had asked him “Where is the justice?”

6. (C) Atmar said there was a larger issue to consider. He
KABUL 00001651 002 OF 003
understood that within DynCorp there were many “wonderful” people working hard, and he was keen to see proper action taken to protect them; but, these contractor companies do not have many friends. He was aware that many questions about them go to SRAP Holbrooke and, in Afghanistan, there is increasing public skepticism about contractors. On the other hand, the conduct of the Combined Security Transition Command-Afghanistan (CSTC-A) is disciplined. Looking at these facts, he said, he wanted CSTC-A in charge. He wanted the ANP to become a model security institution just like the Afghan National Army (ANA) and National Directorate for Security (NDS), and the contractors were not producing what was desired. He suggested that the U.S. establish and independent commission to review the mentor situation, an idea he said Ambassador Eikenberry had first raised. Atmar added that he also wanted tighter control over Afghan employees. He was convinced that the Kunduz incident, and other events where mentors had obtained drugs, could not have happened without Afghan participation.

Irak: Collateral Murder

Die Realität der Befreiung des Irak

5.10.2010

12. Juli 2007, New Baghdad – Irak. Im Bild zu sehen sind unter anderem die bei Reuters beschäftigten Journalisten Namir Noor-Eldeen und Saeed Chmagh.

Sogar herbeigeeilte Helfer in einem Kleinbus, die versuchen die Verletzten zu bergen, werden aus der Luft niedergemäht. Dabei werden zwei Kinder die im Fahrzeug sitzen ebenfalls schwer verletzt. Von einer Bedrohung oder Waffen keine Spur.

Ein Panzer der US-Armee rollt dann später über die verstreuten Leichen und die Besatzung lacht sogar.

Man hört den Funkverkehr zwischen dem Kommando und den Schützen:

Alle sind aufgereiht.
Los, schiess endlich!
Schiess weiter!
Ha, Ha, ich hab sie erwischt!
Einige Leichen liegen rum.
Wir haben acht Typen erwischt.
Ja, da krabbelt einer noch da unter rum.
Wir werden noch ein Paar erschiessen.
Hey, du schiesst und ich rede.
Oh, ja schaut euch diese toten Bastarde an.
Nett, nett. Gut geschossen.
Danke.“ aus SChall und Rauch

Kommentar: Es gibt Etliche Videos, wie US Soldaten und auch Söldner mit vollen Vorsatz, absolut unbewaffente Zivilisten erschiessen und wie aus den mitgeschnittenen Unterhaltungen hervor geht: „zum Spaß“ Dies zur Verbrecher Organisation NATO!

Overview

5th April 2010 10:44 EST WikiLeaks has released a classified US military video depicting the indiscriminate slaying of over a dozen people in the Iraqi suburb of New Baghdad — including two Reuters news staff.

Reuters has been trying to obtain the video through the Freedom of Information Act, without success since the time of the attack. The video, shot from an Apache helicopter gun-site, clearly shows the unprovoked slaying of a wounded Reuters employee and his rescuers. Two young children involved in the rescue were also seriously wounded.

The military did not reveal how the Reuters staff were killed, and stated that they did not know how the children were injured.

After demands by Reuters, the incident was investigated and the U.S. military concluded that the actions of the soldiers were in accordance with the law of armed conflict and its own „Rules of Engagement“.

Consequently, WikiLeaks has released the classified Rules of Engagement for 2006, 2007 and 2008, revealing these rules before, during, and after the killings.

WikiLeaks has released both the original 38 minutes video and a shorter version with an initial analysis. Subtitles have been added to both versions from the radio transmissions.
