THE INVISIBLE WAR is a groundbreaking investigative documentary about one of our country's most shameful and best kept secrets: the epidemic of rape within our US military. Today, a female soldier in Iraq and Afghanistan is more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire with the number of assaults in the last decade alone in the hundreds of thousands.
Focusing on the powerfully emotional stories of several young women, the film reveals the systemic cover up of the crimes against them and follows their struggles to rebuild their lives and fight for justice. THE INVISIBLE WAR features hard-hitting interviews with high-ranking military officials and members of Congress that reveal the perfect storm conditions that exist for rape in the military, its history of cover-up, and what can be done to bring about much needed change.
Sorry, it's a sore subject -- didn't mean to flame you.

Totally agree with your post. At no time was I defending his actions. He made his bed. It was Army by the way.

It's a shame that I have to agree with you, but I do. At least for combat areas where stress runs high.. it may or may not be better in non-combat related positions such as the Air Force. You can say the Army needs to crack down on this left and right, but it doesn't matter.. assume that every case was tried and the criminal punished: It still happened. And will happen. It's our species nature..
