Obama's Abu Ghraib and Media Silence. Child Rape on U.S. Bases in Afghanistan Draws Little Attention

This would be a major issue if Bush was in the White House!

Remember the Abu Ghraib prison scandal in Iraq? How could you forget. It was front page news for YEARS! Images of terrorists being humiliated looked much like a fraternity initiation gone bad yet the media howled and howled.

Terrorist humiliated at Abu Ghraib. Cry me a river!
But a report in the New York Times that U.S. soldiers were told to ignore the sexual abuse of children, including the rape of boys and girls at U.S. military bases in Afghanistan by our Afghan allies was a three day story. The Washington Post wrote a follow up report and White House spokesman Josh Earnest expressed "deep concern" with promises that the issue would be raised with the Afghan government. In other words, that's the end of it. You can expect as much to be done about this as the IRS targeting of the Tea Party or the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The left used Abu Ghraib as a way to demonize the entire Bush war and anti-terrorism effort. They simply refuse to hold Obama to the same standard even when children are involved!
