The Whistleblower

2010 R 112 minutes
Sent to Bosnia to train cops in the aftermath of that country's brutal civil war, American policewoman Kathryn Bolkovac (Rachel Weisz) uncovers evidence that U.N. peacekeepers are complicit in a flourishing sex-trafficking trade. But when she brings her allegations to light, she discovers that her foes are more powerful than the law. Based on a true story, this thriller from director Larysa Kondracki co-stars Monica Bellucci and David Strathairn.

Fucking DynCorp. My husband had a run in with those corrupt, arrogant, lazy fuckers when he was in the service, and he is next to impossible to piss off, and he was pissed when he got home from work. Anyway, I remember reading this article within a couple years of it being written. When the phrase "diplomatic immunity" showed up in the movie I had to take a break as I was picturing myself going after one of the characters in the movie with a baseball bat. "Immunize that, you fucker!" I thougt.
