This is disturbing....
From FoxNews -- 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.
The heads of organizations like this are usually the recipients of political favors for campaign donations and such. They have no real desire to operate or manage these foreign service organizations, nor do they care about the day to day goings-on in remote, third-world countries, and the chronic gang-rape of American women isn't considered polite conversation at DC cocktail parties.
If this number is true, 1000 American girls raped, then no amount of good charity work can outweigh the cost to these women of that. Isn't it about time for these miserably inept countries to mooch off somebody else for a few generations? I mean we're running out of women to supply for them.
I've never really got the whole Peace Corps thing. Do you learn a skill that'll help you get a job back home? I mean, helping people is a noble thing but at the cost of likely rape? I wonder if Obama will use this as an opportunity to push for his program of 2 years of mandatory youth volunteer service he's been talking about?
1000 girls raped! How has this gone unnoticed?
