Poe seeks meeting with Rice on KBR rape case.


Frustrated with “unacceptable” written responses from the State Department regarding the gang rape in Iraq of one his constituents, Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX) wrote to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Monday asking her to “answer questions in person” about the high-profile case involving military contractor KBR. Declining to comment further about whether Rice would actually meet with Poe, State spokesperson Nicole Thompson only said “the secretary’s office will respond to the congressman.”
