Nine years later, an internal investigation revealed that "An untold number of Department of Defense (DOD) employees and contractors have subscriptions to child pornography websites."
Now, BuzzFeed News (which ejected one of its own suspected pedophiles last year for plagiarism) reports that the CIA has "secretly amassed credible evidence that at least 10 of its employees and contractors committed sexual crimes involving children), yet while most of the cases were referred to US attorneys for prosecution, only one of the individuals was ever charged with a crime (who also allegedly mishandled classified information), and the rest were sent back to the CIA to handle internally - which meant few faced any consequences "beyond the possible loss of their jobs and security clearances."
Details of the egregious 'pass' given to said agency employees were revealed in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit.
One employee had sexual contact with a 2-year-old and a 6-year-old. He was fired. A second employee purchased three sexually explicit videos of young girls, filmed by their mothers. He resigned. A third employee estimated that he had viewed up to 1,400 sexually abusive images of children while on agency assignments. The records do not say what action, if any, the CIA took against him. A contractor who arranged for sex with an undercover FBI agent posing as a child had his contract revoked.
Only one of the individuals cited in these documents was charged with a crime. In that case, as in the only previously known case of a CIA staffer being charged with child sexual crimes, the employee was also under investigation for mishandling classified material. -BuzzFeed
