Must-see video: this is what 30 Republicans voted against! Al Franken questions girl who was drugged, gang-raped, and locked in a shipping crate with a guard in front of it. KBR is Dick Cheney's company btw...

In 2005, Jamie Leigh Jones was gang-raped by her co-workers while she was working for Halliburton/KBR in Baghdad. She was detained in a shipping container for at least 24 hours without food, water, or a bed, and “warned her that if she left Iraq for medical treatment, she’d be out of a job.”

Court rules that KBR employee’s gang rape wasn’t a personal injury ‘arising in the workplace.’

Dick Cheney's Halliburton/KBR - does the Torturer's daughter Liz Cheney (on right) have anything to say about this? She must be "against the troops"!!!

Here's more about KBR, keep in mind how quickly congress defunded ACORN based on a video of two kooks dressed as a pimp and a prostitute:
