Former Marine

The Pentagon has just released a report indicating a rise in reports of sexual assault in military academies. This young former Marine speaks or her own continual sexual harrassment, brutal assualt and rape by multiple Marines serving with her while at Parris Island, North Carolina and continuing during her training at Ft. Meade, Maryland.

She says efforts to seek help from military M.D.s fell on deaf ears despite intense trauma that left her with cervical damage, unrelenting nightmares and in constant fear. After seeing what happened to other women when they did report being raped, this soldier went U.A. with the support of her family. She was picked up and jailed before being discharged without benefits.

on the dark side in Al Doura – a soldier in the shadows

WARNING: Graphic and disturbing photos between 38:40 and 40:45.
U.S. Army Ranger John Needham, who was awarded two purple hearts and three medals for heroism, wrote to military authorities in 2007 reporting war crimes that he witnessed being committed by his own command and fellow soldiers in Al Doura, Iraq. His charges were supported by atrocity photos which, in the public interest, are now released in this video. John paid a terrible price for his opposition to these acts. His story is tragic.

CBS reported obtaining an Army document from the Criminal Investigation Command suggestive of an investigation into these war crimes allegations. The Army’s conclusion was that the “offense of War Crimes did not occur.” However, CBS also stated that the report was “redacted and incomplete; 111 pages were withheld.”

This video is placed with the context of Vice President, Dick Cheney, insistence that this nation’s efforts “must go to the dark side;” which included ignoring the Geneva Conventions.

John’s story is told, here, by his father, Michael Needham. It is produced in the spirit of the public interest and towards promoting justice foundational to the rule of law.
