What a nice organization.

Peace Corps Gang Rape: Volunteer Says U.S. Agency Ignored Warnings

More than 1,000 young American women have been raped or sexually assaulted in the last decade while serving as Peace Corps volunteers in foreign countries, an ABC News 20/20 investigation has found.

In some cases, victims say, the Peace Corps has ignored safety concerns and later tried to blame the women who were raped for bringing on the attacks.

"I have two daughters now and I would never ever let them join the Peace Corps," said Adrianna Ault Nolan of New York, who was raped while serving in Haiti.

Didn't Obama increased the size of that organization? Not yet, but he plans to :

"Barack Obama will double the Peace Corps to 16,000 by its 50th anniversary in 2011 and push Congress to fully fund this expansion, with a focus on Latin America and the Caribbean."

More rapes and more cover-ups coming.

Where ever there are a lot of men with only a few women, you will get this situation..
I'm not saying it's right.
I think rape is disgusting but it always occurs under those conditions..

And if thousands of US women have suffered this then how many locals, including children, do you think have been effected??
