How brave American women on the battlefront are treated

I had blogged in October, 2009 that it was shocking that American women who allege rape or harassment while serving in Iraq or Afghanistan have been denied recourse to courts. Studies that I had not been aware of when I blogged in October show the extent of this offence.  For example, this story from May, 2009 shows another form of wink-wink-nod-nod behaviour of the Government when it comes to dealing with this issue. This story on BBC's website datelined 17 April, 2009  reviews a book on the subject. Importantly, it alleges that the US Department of Defense knew about this state of affairs and chose to do nothing.
