Kabul Korrespondence

Fresh, factual, and funky view of Afghanistan and the surrounding Central Asian region

Monkies misbehaving

Sunday, September 06, 2009

We call em Monkeys: the ever growing community of private contractors that are making big money 'securing' Afghaniastan's more important foreigner guests. Slowly their numbers are increasing and the few social venues we have to relax in are being over taken by broad shouldered, head shaven, karkey colour clothed, meat-heads. (oh did I type that!?!) Now the shit has hit the fan at one of the monkeys top positions:


The US embassy in Afghanistan says it has fired eight security guards who were photographed taking part in lewd acts during alcohol-fuelled parties at their living quarters in Kabul.

The individuals from ArmorGroup, a private security company, were sacked after the Project on Government Oversight group sent a letter to the US secretary of state alleging that guards had held abusive rituals.

Photos that were posted on the internet show guards from the security firms in various states of undress, including some in which they grope each other naked.

"Ten guards seen in the offensive photos are leaving the country today; eight were terminated and two resigned," the embassy said in a statement on Friday.

"The entire senior management team of ArmorGroup North America in Kabul is being replaced immediately. The embassy security office continues its interviews of every one of the ArmorGroup guards."

An embassy spokeswoman also said the guards had been banned from drinking alcohol at any time while in Afghanistan.
