This is what’s guarding the US embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan, right now:These are “contractors” (read: MERCENARIES) from a private security firm. Yes, they really like to drink vodka out of the cracks of one another’s asses…among other things. Mother Jones has more:
Because hey, what are Freedom and Democracy all about, if not nightly frat parties, hookers, booze and hazings? Your tax dollars at work, USA!PS: Yes, I know. That was VERY hard on your virgin eyes. Here, have a kitty chaser.
Drunken brawls, prostitutes, hazing and humiliation, taking vodka shots out of buttcracks–no, the perpetrators of these Animal House-like antics aren’t some depraved frat brothers. They are the private security contractors guarding the US embassy compound in Kabul.These allegations, and many more, are contained in a letter sent to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Tuesday by the Project on Government Oversight, which has been investigating the embassy security contract held by ArmorGroup North America (a subsidiary of Wackenhut, which is in turn owned by the security behemoth G4S). The contractor was the subject of a congressional probe earlier this summer that found serious lapses in the company’s handling of the embassy security contract, which internal State Department documents said left the embassy compound “in jeopardy.” Nevertheless, the government opted to extend the company’s 5-year, $189 million contract for another year. […] Numerous emails, photographs, and videos portray a Lord of the Flies environment. One email from a current guard describes scenes in which guards and supervisors are “peeing on people, eating potato chips out of [buttock] cracks, vodka shots out of [buttock] cracks (there is video of that one), broken doors after drnken [sic] brawls, threats and intimidation from those leaders participating in this activity….” Photograph after photograph shows guards–including supervisors–at parties in various stages of nudity, sometimes fondling each other. These parties take place just a few yards from the housing of other supervisors. Multiple guards say this deviant hazing has created a climate of fear and coercion, with those who declined to participate often ridiculed, humiliated, demoted, or even fired. The result is an environment that is dangerous and volatile. Some guards have reported barricading themselves in their rooms for fear that those carrying out the hazing will harm them physically. Others have reported that AGNA management has begun to conduct a witch hunt to identify employees who have provided information about this atmosphere to POGO.
