WASHINGTON — The Pentagon’s Inspector General has launched an investigation into the response by American troops to allegations that Afghan military and police officials were involved in the sexual abuse of children.

The investigation will seek to determine what role American servicemembers should serve in curtailing the sexual abuse of children and whether they properly responded to such allegations, Deputy Inspector General Kenneth Moorefield wrote in a memorandum to senior defense leaders dated Feb. 19.

“We have been conducting a research project related to these issues since Oct. 28, 2015,” he wrote. “This announcement is to inform you that we are now conducting a full assessment addressing these issues.” Among the questions that the investigation seeks to answer, Moorefield wrote, are whether troops were instructed — either officially or through unofficial channels — to ignore sexual abuse, how many cases of child sexual abuse had been reported to the U.S. military and whether those reports had been forwarded to the Afghan government, and whether American troops have been trained properly to deal with the issue.

The investigation also seeks to determine what legal authorities American troops have on bases in Afghanistan to intervene or to use force if they witness or are informed of sexual abuse of a child, Moorefield wrote.

The publicity is stirred up so they have to act like they are doing something. In my experience the IG is a paper tiger. I've seen some seriously fucked up shit go down and get reported to the IG and nothing ever comes if it.  Some fucking group of officers comes, asks a bunch of questions and takes statements, leaves and thing go on the same as they have before.

That was bullshit in its purest, most fundamental form.

Why? What do they hope to accomplish? Acknowledge what everyone already knows?

It's not like anything will be done about it.

Same here, I've never seen the IG do shit.  Congressional inquiries on the other hand...

I still can't believe they did that.
