Sexual Hazing In Afghanistan

I can't post any of the photos here, but you might want to wander over to Gawker and see what kind of shenanigans the private security company hired to protect the U.S. embassy in Kabul are getting up to.
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." These photos were provided to us by the Project on Government Oversight, which has just written a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton detailing its investigation into the "Lord of the Flies environment" that has overtaken the private contractors who guard State Department employees in Kabul, Afghanistan. According to POGO, employees of ArmorGroup North America—a unit of contracting giant Wackenhut—get their jollies off by "deviant hazing [that] has created a climate of fear and coercion, with those who declined to participate often ridiculed, humiliated, demoted, or even fired."
Gawker calls it "desperately homoerotic fratboy" hazing. It's like a really bad gay porn flick, really.
