Solving the Problem of Rape, KBR-Style

You almost certainly remember the case of Jamie Leigh Jones, a KBR/Halliburton employee who was raped and imprisoned in Iraq, and only escaped because a sympathetic guard loaned her a cell phone that allowed her to call for help.

Each time I think we’ve hit the floor, someone starts digging deeper.
