  • Marine Gregory Buckley was shot dead at an Afghan base by a local teen
  • Gunman granted access to base as an assistant to an Afghan police chief 
  • It is claimed the chief sexually abused the teenager and other boys at base
  • The Marine’s father says his son was told to turn blind eye to abuse at base
