Yes, she's strange and different...but not THAT different.

Can't touch this

Have you heard the story about the woman from Texas working in Iraq as a contractor who two years ago was drugged, gang raped by a group of male KBR employees and then locked in a shipping container by those same men because she wanted to file charges because of what had happened to her? But who finally managed to sneak out a message to her father in Texas who called his Congressional Representative who called the State Department who called the Army who set the woman free, did a medical exam, found that she had indeed been forcibly violated both anally and vaginally and then gave the rape kit and test results to KBR. Who lost them. And without any proof, there never were any charges. Or even an investigation. By ANY agency. Because it's, you know, a war on terror over there. And because they're KBR - the Iraq division of Cheneyburton.

You haven't heard that story? Then you need to go check it out.

    Did no one keep copies of the test results? What gives there?

    Or have you heard about the openly gay woman reservist who was murdered in Iraq because she had some "potentially damaging information"?

    You can (sadly) read it here

    This world and the people in it really make me sad, sometimes.

    That is so sad....My heart goes out to her. I do believe they will get what's coming to them, if not through our justice through God's.

    not surprising. no matter in the eyes of a great deal of men women always get what they deserve. i bet if there had been a trial they would have said she was wearing fishnets with her boots and that there was nothing they could do. not their fault.

    If it turns out to be true I would like to see the rapists punished under Iraqi law as well as the people involved in the coverup. (castration or hanging)

    The actions of these people in positions of power who are outside the law disgust me.
