Justice AWOL At Congressional Hearing On Rape Harassment

While the Department of Justice was AWOL from the congressional hearings about the allegations of rape and sexual harassment by US contractors in Iraq, Jaime Leigh Jones did testify.

Melissa over at Shakesville has a link to her testimony and has a written transcript of Jones' testimony.

Not surprisingly, Jones is far from being the only one to report being raped by so-called friendlies while working in Iraq. This hearing shows why there must be serious criminal and financial consequences for these types of actions. Without consequences too many people decide that rape is A-okay and that rapists make fine employees.
