"Another KBR employee raped in Iraq."

Today, Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) held a hearing on the alleged rapes by U.S. contractors in Iraq and the lack of federal prosecutions. Dawn Leamon, who worked for KBR in Iraq and has two sons who served as soldiers, is the latest victim of sexual assault to come forward. She testified that she was “unaware of any measures to date being taken against the KBR employee or the member of the U.S. military who attacked me.” Yesterday, the Justice Department reversed course and agreed to answer Senate questions on why it has not prosecuted any of these cases.
