Dahr Jamail on military sexual trauma

Hosts Northwest Vets for Peace speak with journalist Dahr Jamail about his latest reports on military sexual trauma. The numbers of rapes and other types of abuse within the U.S. Military are staggering, according to Dahr Jamail. Victims continue to say that both their commanders and the Department of Defense in general has been ignoring pleas for help. 

Dahr Jamail is author of two recent books, “Beyond the Green Zone, Dispatches from an Unembedded Journalist in Occupied Iraq”, and “The Will To Resist, Soldiers who Refuse to Fight in Iraq and Afghanistan”.
