Wackenhut Gone Wild

This can’t exactly be helpful in advancing the cause of “western values” in Afghanistan:

Wonder what it’s like to guard State Department facilities in Kabul? In photos first published by Gawker, security contractors get their kicks peeing on one another, simulating anal sex, doing “butt shots,” and “eating potato chips out of ass cracks.”

    Picture it: The beginning of the millennium. A corrupt, degenerate, debauched, exhibitionist culture decides the time is ripe to embark on a global mission to reform traditional, conservative societies.

    What can possibly go wrong with that?

    Anyway, why the hell do these nimrods think they have film and photograph everything?

  2. That’s a good question. I have no idea why so many people feel the need to memorialize their bad behavior on film.

    Kinda reminds me of the gang showers in my high school after PE. I don’t recall any cracker eaters though.

Interesting update to the story and a victory of sorts for bloggers (that part of the conversation starts about 4 mins. into the clip) where it’s suggested that the story really only got legs once pictures were released directly to Gawker.com by the Project for Government Oversight (POGO) as opposed to the MSM:

    Sadly, No. Looks like Wackenhut’s contract has been re-upped for another year:

    “Yet in July of this year, after representatives from the State Department and from Wackenhut Services, Inc, (AGNA’s parent company) testified that previously identified problems had been solved, the State Department renewed AGNA’s contract for another year.”
