Ivory Coast: UN troops trade food for sex with young girls

Yet another reason for the passage of Ileana Ros-Lehtinen’s House bill, the United Nations Transparency, Accountability and Reform Act, to hold the stinking United Nations accountable.

Naturally, however, Obama and Hillary are so in the tank for the detestable organization, that both the State Department and the White House have said they oppose it, and so will pressure senate Democrats to veto the bill. It won’t be a hard sell because Democrats love the United Nations as much as they hate United States.

AP (h/t Gateway Pundit) – United Nations peacekeepers in Ivory Coast enticed underage girls in a poor part of the West African nation to exchange sex for food, according to a United States Embassy cable released by WikiLeaks.

The cable written in January 2010 focuses on the behavior of Beninese peacekeepers stationed in the western town of Toulepleu, an area that has been at the crosshairs of the nation’s 10-year-long conflict.

A random poll of 10 underage girls in Toulepleu by aid group Save The Children U.K. in 2009 found that eight performed sexual acts for Benin peacekeepers on a regular basis in order to secure their most basic needs. “Eight of the 10 said they had ongoing sexual relationships with Beninese soldiers in exchange for food or lodging,” the diplomat wrote in the cable, citing information shared with the embassy by a protection officer.

On Tuesday, United Nations spokesman Michel Bonnardeaux confirmed that in April, 16 Beninese peacekeepers were repatriated to Benin and are barred from serving in the U.N. following a yearlong investigation.

“We see it as a command and control problem,” said Bonnardeaux who spoke by telephone from New York. Of the 16, 10 were commanders and the rest were soldiers.

The commanders, he said, “failed to maintain an environment that prevents sexual exploitation and abuse.”

Sexual misconduct by U.N. troops has been reported in a number of countries including Congo, Cambodia and Haiti — as well as in an earlier incident involving Moroccan peacekeepers in Ivory Coast.  (more UN perversion>>)
