Haliburton: Screwing Americans Literally and Figuratively

haliburton.jpgHey Haliburton: You’re not supposed to torture the Americans, you dumb shits.

A Houston, Texas woman says she was gang-raped by Halliburton/KBR coworkers in Baghdad, and the company and the U.S. government are covering up the incident.
Jamie Leigh Jones, now 22, says that after she was raped by multiple men at a KBR camp in the Green Zone, the company put her under guard in a shipping container with a bed and warned her that if she left Iraq for medical treatment, she’d be out of a job. …
According to her lawsuit, Jones was raped by “several attackers who first drugged her, then repeatedly raped and injured her, both physically and emotionally.”
Jones told ABCNews.com that an examination by Army doctors showed she had been raped “both vaginally and anally,” but that the rape kit disappeared after it was handed over to KBR security officers.

And you know what’s even more screwed up about this? The Haliburton contractors — thanks to immunity while on Iraqi soil — will likely never face charges. God Bless the U.S.A.

BAM!

One slight problem - Halliburton did not own KBR at the time of the incident. So to imply that quote "Halliburton/KBR coworkers" gang raped the woman is, well, you're the lawyer, you tell me...

Oh, and by the way your buddies over at overlayered.com have a less inflammatory take on the situation http://www.overlawyered.com/2007/12/halliburton_gang_rape_and_fear.html
