I like the way they try to sanitize the matter by using terms like underage and prostitute. The bottom line is that it’s technically pedophilia (the girl was only 16 at the time) and that’s why the FBI is involved.
It’s an all too common practice for wealthy creeps to travel to foreign countries looking for a taste of forbidden fruit and yes, even though it happened outside the US, it’s still a federal crime. All too often these girls (and boys) are kept as virtual slaves. Because of that even the UN and Interpol are involved in investigating these human traffickers in the sex tourism trade.
To call them prostitutes is to dismiss the fact that these kids are being bought and sold and held against their will, forced to provide sexual services to rich bastards with political connections.
