MEDIA: HALLIBURTON PAID DICK CHENEY TO COMMIT RAPE IN IRANAugust 3, 2011A front-page story by James Risen in The New York Times on Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2008, reported on a "troubling trend" of sexual assaults committed by American employees of military contractors in Iraq. The centerpiece of his story was Jamie Leigh Jones, who claimed to have been brutally gang-raped in 2005 while working in the Green Zone.
(Risen also interviewed other women claiming to have been sexually assaulted in Iraq and -- for journalistic balance -- their attorneys.)
Jones famously claimed that days after arriving in Iraq with KBR, then a subsidiary of Halliburton, she had been drugged and gang-raped by fellow employees and then held at machine-gunpoint in a tiny shipping container by KBR managers, with no food or water for 24 hours, as retaliation for reporting the rape.
You may have heard about Jones' sensational allegations - invariably reported as fact -- on ABC's "20/20"; CNN; CBS News' "The Early Show," MSNBC, National Public Radio, in every major U.S. newspaper and international media.
All she had to do was mention the words "rape" and "Halliburton," and the automatons went wild!
Jones told her tale before congressional committees, on numerous TV shows -- and in a book she is actually writing, titled: "The Jamie Leigh Story: How My Rape in Iraq and Cover-up Made Me a Crusader for Justice." (Scheduled for release the third Tuesday after never.)
Then-senator Barack Obama demanded a State Department investigation into Jones' claims.
But no one jumped on Jones' story with more self-righteousness than Sen. Al Franken. He used her story to jam through a grandstandy "anti-rape" amendment to an appropriations bill prohibiting defense contractors from including mandatory arbitration clauses in employment contracts, thus depriving mountebank trial lawyers like John Edwards from collecting massive damages awards from illiterate jurors.
Whatever..just show them the dire situation graphically! And Ross was in the race very well until he flaked out! He would have probably won.
Maybe a picture of Chris Christie came on her TV and she swooned over to Iran?
Pray for America
I hope some of the posters that don't understand her style and wit read it.
I still don’t get it.
I actually like that form of the word better than archetypal
Maybe I should have “spelled” it archetype-ical
Dr. Zoo, do you want the word archetypicle for your book Dictionary of Words That Are Not But Should be, Thypos Welcome?
yes. It does nothing to help me understand why she wrote Iran.
It’s a jab at the MSM
If the MEDIA: posted a story about Cheney being paid to rape someone, they would just as likely get the country wrong too.
Oh. Okay. Thanx
<< How do you go from total amnesia to deciding that you were the star of your own Lifetime made-for-TV movie? I don’t remember offhand what I was doing last Tuesday, but this does not automatically lead me to assume I was gang-raped. >>
Made me laugh.
And, I do appreciate AC taking time to point out what lying frauds MSM are when their anti/conservative agenda is being served.
Let me know if you'd like to be added to the Ann Coulter ping list.
She did that last month as well with an article she wrote on her new book, calling it a “Besteller” lol! I think she still hasn’t changed it.
Go Annie! Lucky for us she sticks to stories to find out the real truth rather than the Lame Stream Media who would champion the little boy who cried wolf as long as the supposed wolf was Christian, Conservative, Republican or Military.
And last week she lit into the NYT.
I remember the flack she caught for saying too bad Osama didn't target the Times back in Sept ‘01
But then of course the NYT, Osama and Obama have similar agendas.
Why target a fellow traveler.
Good article. Maybe the House should have passed a bill prohibiting government contractors from hiring raving nutters with breast implants. In fact, they could use breast implants as a marker for “employee likely to reduce efficiency and cause trouble.”
Perhaps liberals were slipped Rohypnol, and that's why they can't remember that not every woman claiming she was raped is always telling the truth.
Either that, or the entire "objective journalism" claim of the value of journalism as we know it is a scam - and the actual business model of the Borg consisting of Associated Press journalism and "liberal" politicians" is to give the public the mushroom treatment (i.e., to keep us in the dark and feed us horse manure).
History starts fresh every day for liberals. Must be peaceful to have such a “free” mind.
Where’s that clown Al Franken now?
