ABC News is reporting a shocking story of an woman who claims to have been ganged raped and then held in a container box by Halliburton/KBR in Iraq. The story of Jamie Leigh Jones is shocking and demands a congressional investigation into whether this contractor and the Justice Department covered up a heinous criminal act.
According to Jones, she was gang-raped by Halliburton/KBR coworkers in Baghdad at a KBR camp in the Green Zone.. She says that the company put her under guard in a shipping container with a bed and told her that she could lose her job if she left.
Jones has filed a federal lawsuit against Halliburton and its then-subsidiary KBR. While the Justice Department investigated, it never brought criminal charges and the laws passed for Iraq may protect these alleged culprits.
There is ample grounds for a tort action, but the failure to proceed with criminal charges calls for investigation.
