Cases like the rape allegations against KBR are like Pandora’s Box – once you open it then it keeps getting worse:
Congress is asking questions about another ex-employee of government contracting firm KBR who claims she was raped in Iraq.
Letters to the Pentagon and the Justice Department today from Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla. underscore congressional concern about a second alleged assault, this time of a woman from Florida who reportedly worked for a KBR subsidiary in Ramadi, Iraq in 2005.
“I am deeply troubled by recent reports that at least two women who worked in Iraq under contractors for the Department of Defense were sexually assaulted by male coworkers,” Nelson wrote Defense Secretary Robert Gates Thursday.
At least some in Congress are taking note of what is happening. Will the administration? Will Dick Cheney reign in on the company he used to run? I doubt it because human life always takes a back seat to corporate profits. That is the basic foundation of “compassionate conservatism”. Who would Jesus screw over for a buck?
