If you’re unfamiliar with the name Jamie Leigh Jones, she’s the woman who has accused Haliburton/KBR of locking her in a shipping container after she reported that she’d been gang-raped by co-workers. If her allegations are proven to be true, that’s pretty damn awful on too many levels, including being another nail in the ‘contractors are evil’ coffin. So of course, it’s just a fiendish plot to undermine the American war effort, right?.
I’m beginning to wonder why we even have humor sites anymore. There’s no beating the bat-shit insano output of political blogs for sheer crazy.
(note: While the linked site is satire, the idea that the Jones case is some kind of anti-American plot is seriously being discussed by a number of well-read political bloggers, as you can see via Swift’s links )
