First of all KBR is no military, so you're the one confused here bud!
What I was talking about if you care to read it without prejudice was ATTITUDE not any specific organization or entity. I hope that I made my point clear now for you or should I repeat it and dash your joy in finding a shred of military criticism in my opinion? Just let me know before you make a fool of yourself again
My assumption that it was military personnel does not change the point. You still are comparing a completely unrelated incident to a thread discussing interrogation techniques. This happened in the 'green zone', a U.S. military controlled sanctuary, so to speak. Furthermore, Halliburton/KBR is hired by the U.S. Government to serve the military. Let's post the entire article for every one to see so they can decide for themselves that your rants are meaningless:
A Houston, Texas woman says she was gang-raped by Halliburton/KBR coworkers in Baghdad, and the company and the U.S. government
are covering up the incident.
Jamie Leigh Jones, now 22, says that after she was raped by multiple men at a KBR camp in the Green Zone, the company put her under guard in a shipping container with a bed and warned her that if she left Iraq for medical treatment, she'd be out of a job.
"Don't plan on working back in Iraq. There won't be a position here, and there won't be a position in Houston," Jones says she was told.
In a lawsuit filed in federal court against Halliburton and its then-subsidiary KBR, Jones says she was held in the shipping container for at least 24 hours without food or water by KBR, which posted armed security guards outside her door, who would not let her leave.
"It felt like prison," says Jones, who told her story to ABC News as part of an upcoming "20/20" investigation. "I was upset; I was curled up in a ball on the bed; I just could not believe what had happened."
Finally, Jones says, she convinced a sympathetic guard to loan her a cell phone so she could call her father in Texas.
"I said, 'Dad, I've been raped. I don't know what to do. I'm in this container, and I'm not able to leave,'" she said. Her father called their congressman, Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas.
"We contacted the State Department first," Poe told ABCNews.com, "and told them of the urgency of rescuing an American citizen" -- from her American employer.
Poe says his office contacted the State Department, which quickly dispatched agents from the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad to Jones' camp, where they rescued her from the container.
According to her lawsuit, Jones was raped by "several attackers who first drugged her, then repeatedly raped and injured her, both physically and emotionally."
Jones told ABCNews.com that an examination by Army doctors showed she had been raped "both vaginally and anally," but that the rape kit disappeared after it was handed over to KBR security officers.

Anyone? fats55, ArmyDover, Bottomfine1, jayquack, and as much as I don't like it cmith? . . .
You see people, once we step over the rights of foreigners and some mofos say it's ok because "it's war" (what fuking war?)
And it appears to me, in the above quote, you are most certainly criticizing our military. Who are the ones you're accusing of perpetrating 'thuggery' and who are you referring to as those who 'once we step on the rights of foreigners . . .'?
