Media: Halliburton Paid Dick Cheney to Commit Rape in Iran

Pages: 1 2

Jones said the attack was so brutal that her breast implants were ruptured and her pectoral muscles torn, requiring massive reconstructive surgery. This was contradicted not only by the female doctor who examined her the next day, but also by her own plastic surgeon back in Houston.

Her claim that KBR management had held her at gunpoint in a shipping container vanished when it turned out she had only remembered that part of the story two years after it supposedly happened (coincidentally, just as the media frenzy began).

Perhaps the Rohypnol made her forget something else: KBR employees, including security guards, don’t even carry guns, much less machine guns.

Having showcased Jones’ original, false accusation in a 1,500-word article splashed across its front page, as soon as her story unraveled, the Times stared at its shoes and said nothing. In another six months, liberals will once again be citing Jones’ case as evidence of the “troubling trend” of sexual assaults among military contractors.

If only Jones had accused Bill Clinton or any member of the Kennedy family of rape, the mainstream media might have treated her allegations with a little more skepticism. But she accused employees of a company with a tertiary, long-ago, six-degrees-of-separation relationship with Dick Cheney. This was no time for journalistic integrity.

Still, wasn’t it the tiniest bit suspicious that Jones claimed KBR management responded to her rape claim by locking her in a shipping container?

Why would a company that already had a PR problem stick its neck out to protect accused rapists? Isn’t it more likely that a corporation would sell out even innocent employees accused of rape? Wouldn’t it have occurred to them that she’d eventually get back to the U.S.?

From the beginning, Jones’ story was that she woke up remembering nothing of the night before … and then suddenly realized she must have been slipped the “date rape” drug Rohypnol, beaten and gang-raped!

How do you go from total amnesia to deciding that you were the star of your own Lifetime made-for-TV movie? I don’t remember offhand what I was doing last Tuesday, but this does not automatically lead me to assume I was gang-raped.

Even before leaving for Iraq with KBR at the age of 20, Jones had made rape accusations against two other men. A few years earlier, she told a doctor her boyfriend had raped her, and right before leaving for Iraq she accused a KBR supervisor of raping her. There was no evidence she was raped in Iraq other than her word — and she was already 0-for-2 on rape allegations.

Just a few years after humiliating themselves over the Duke lacrosse case, it’s nice to see the media weren’t the least bit hesitant about leaping on another ludicrous rape claim.

Perhaps liberals were slipped Rohypnol, and that’s why they can’t remember that not every woman claiming she was raped is always telling the truth.

    No one can skewer the Left with her sarcasm and wit like Anne Coulter. No writer deflates the hot air out of the self-aggrandizing and holier-than-thou priests and priestesses of liberalism, exposing their foibles and obsessions. The word Halliburton is to the Left like the ring of the bell is to Pavlov's dogs.

      "The word Halliburton is to the left…" For good reason.

  • StephenD

    So, when will the retractions start for real and not just Saturday on page 13? I'd love to see Franken called out on this. Thanks for a great story Ann! I always look forward to you, in every forum you may appear.

      When? Why never, of course.

    If the NYT was to turn out the lights, lock its doors and throw the keys into the East River about 80% of the world's problems would disappear.

    • Chicago Nick

      And the other 20% could be also pushed into the east river and be solved overnight with the decimation of the now and always useless UN. ;)

    • scum

      Sure, if only the state would dictate that only Fox News and the New York Post could sell us their drivel, the world would be a wonderful place. LOL

    Franken is/was a pornographic comedian and the biggest laugh was that they elected him knowing that fact. Obama and his gang of muzlim supporters love rape. In fact his saudi "kiss the ring" king recently passes laws making sex and marriage with babies legal. It even declares that if still breast feeding the child's mother must come to feed the baby after sexual relations.

    The left’s hatred for the right and everything American has opened a profitable cottage industry for parasites like this chick and they’re out there by tens of thousands preying on idiots who think with the wrong head time and time again and they ruin it for the women who are actually ‘raped’ in the process.

    These people have destroyed this country so greatly from within Al Queda is using their playbook now instead of the other way around during the Bush administration. Two groups like c2 in a turban.

  • myomy

    yeah, her story is absurd…. a big evil company like Haliburton wouldn't have locked her in a shipping container, they would have dropped a shipping container on her.. ouch. Our corrupt MSM shouldn't be trusted about anything these days…

  • jasonz

    it will never get out and reported by the LSM. the facts behind the case are not relevent to the ultimate lesson and goal…'the left does not like cheney' . tho the left the ends justify the means and the false vilification of an adversary is more important than integrity or the truth.

  • ebonystone

    The only surprising thing is that the MSM haven't blamed the "rape" on Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, the Tea Party, or the NRA.

    • pyeatte

      no, Bush did it.

  • ebonystone

    It's a good thing for her that her case didn't come before Gov. Christie's new Moslem judge. He would have thrown her into prison for failing to produce the required four adult male witnesses, as required by Sharia law.

  • mlcblog

    I am so not surprised that the LSM made a big deal of this false claim. They do not really care for the truth, only what headlines they can generate!!

  • scum

    If all of educaiton is the ''bastion of liberals,' it must be because conservatives moved into the big money positions in corporate America. If those CEO's want to come off the unemployment line (after the crash they caused) and teach for 34k, then go at it.

  • pyeatte

    Doesn't she face liability for false rape accusations?

  • twotwins

    New PR company please! We need billboards, our own newspaper,leaflets dropped from the skies . . . . . anything, anything to "counter" these viscious liberals. There are a few in my family and they are so nasty and cheap and low down. Somebody has to figure out a way to "counter" them everytime they open their jealous mouths!!!
