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
Finally, Jones says, she convinced a sympathetic guard to loan her a cell phone so she could call her father in Texas.
"I said, 'Dad, I've been raped. I don't know what to do. I'm in this container, and I'm not able to leave,'" she said. Her father called their congressman, Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas.
"We contacted the State Department first," Poe told ABCNews.com, "and told them of the urgency of rescuing an American citizen" -- from her American employer.
Poe says his office contacted the State Department, which quickly dispatched agents from the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad to Jones' camp, where they rescued her from the container.
According to her lawsuit, Jones was raped by "several attackers who first drugged her, then repeatedly raped and injured her, both physically and emotionally."
We can thank Rumsfeld and his enabler Cheney for this fucking disaster. Those dumb-assess opened the door for all these mercenaries. KBR, Blackwater and all these other Merc firms need to be withdrawn from Iraq right now. We haven't even gotten past the tip of the iceberg of the evil shit these people have been up to. Enough is enough. Mercs out now.
Anybody want to guess how long before we start hearing the attacks on this 22 year old girl?
