Marine Corps' Nude Photo Scandal is Actually a US Military-Wide Scandal

The report comes days after the Department of Defense launched an investigation into a now-shuttered Marines United private Facebook group.

The scandal centers around a Facebook group known as Marines United, in which thousands of nude photos of female Marines and other service members were shared.

The newly formed task force will monitor the progress of the criminal investigation and determine whether the victims received appropriate support, Neller said.

"We will not excuse or tolerate such behavior if we are to uphold our values and maintain our ability to defeat the enemy on the battlefield", said Mattis. Marine Commandant Robert Neller, the highest-ranking Marine, will be briefing the House Armed Services Committee on the scandal next week, and the Navy Criminal Investigative Service is delving into the issue as well.

Whereas the "Marines United" scandal opened the door for the public to learn about the Marines' nude photo scandal, as reported by the Huffington Post, news about Anon-IB has broken that claims Anon-IB contains a military thread dedicated to military personnel sharing naked photos.

The existence of a private Facebook group called "Marines United" and its surreptitious distribution of explicit images of women in the Armed Forces - often with obscene, misogynist commentary - came to light in published reports over the weekend. Defense officials are also investigating an image-sharing message board, where troops from all branches of the service are crowdsourcing naked pictures of specific female service members.

He also said woman have more than proven themselves capable Marines, recounting female Marines killed in attack in Barwanah, Iraq.

After the story broke, users were still posting on the Facebook group (since taken down) asking for the photos.

"From the marines who have reached out to us since the Marines United story emerged, we believe these problems are pervasive", said Colonel Don Christensen, former chief prosecutor of the USA air force and president of Protect Our Defenders.

On Wednesday former Marine Erika Butner, and active duty Marine Marisa Woytek, came forward claiming that their photos had been shared online without their consent, and that though such behavior has been going on for more than a decade, superior officers typically look the other way.

When authorities asked Frenette why she agreed to inject Farruggia with the drugs, she allegedly remarked, "I'm a people pleaser". Meanwhile, during her interview, Frenette told the investigators that she was, at first, baffled by her friend's request.

Butner said she knew some of the women featured in the groups and said that they had not given their permission for the images to be shared online. A CNN review of the site found photos of women in uniforms from different branches of the military - and nude and partially nude images.

"I don't want people who treat women like cattle or meat to be in the military", she said.

"There are going to be consequences to this type of behavior", Neller said.

Capt. Ryan E. Alvis, a spokesman for the Marine Corps, said Thursday: "We are not able to confirm that Marines are participating in the site AnonIB".
