Fact or Crap: KBR Fact Sheets Revived

As many of you are aware, KBR has a page on their website called KBR Fact Sheets. Until a couple of months ago, the Fact Sheet page listed several of KBR’s high profile cases with links to pages attempting to discredit the victims and tell KBR’s side of the story.

Then all of a sudden no cases and no links to KBR’s pathetic attempts to justify their position in these heinous crimes. I received several emails asking if I had copies of the pages and low and behold……I did, thanks to Google cache!

In light of the upcoming Jamie Leigh Jones trial which starts on June 13, 2011, it appears KBR has revised and republished their attack against Jamie.

As a public service to all of KBR victims, their attorney’s, reporters, investigators, etc I am republishing KBR’s Fact Sheets as they originally appeared on KBR’s website.

Here’s the link to the original KBR Fact Sheet listing available links.

Below are the links to .pdf’s of the original KBR Fact Sheet pages.

KBR Named A Preferred Employer Among Women? Surely you jest!

Every once in a while, something so incomprehensible happens, it throws off the whole balance of nature, white becomes black, up becomes down and pigs fly.

In a recent news release from KBR, it states they have made it onto the “Top 50 Employers” list for Woman Engineer Magazine with a ranking of #46. The lists published on WEM’s site do not include KBR so I can’t confirm KBR’s claim. Assuming KBR is not trying to mislead their employees and investors and did in fact somehow magically make it onto this list, I must then ask “Who in the Hell is #47, #48, #49 & #50?” KBR is notorious for their crimes and abuses against women employees. (Click HERE to contact Women Engineer Magazine and insist KBR be removed from the list)

Let’s start with this short list of well documented cases of female KBR employees who were brutally raped, harassed, intimidated and held against their will while working for KBR in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Jamie Leigh Jones – Drugged and gang raped by KBR employee Charles Boartz and other unidentified KBR employees (firemen) and then held against her will by KBR management in the Green Zone – Baghdad, Iraq. To top it off KBR has the audacity to publicly vilify Jones by calling her a liar on their own site and in the media.

Anna MayoRaped and brutally beaten by who is believed to be a KBR employee and who was allowed to leave the country most likely by KBR management at Balad, Iraq. Again KBR chooses to publicly vilify Mayo by claiming she did not pursue the issue when she felt threatened by this employee when in fact she did report it to KBR management.

Women team up to stop alleged contractor abuses in Iraq

Christine Dobbyns – HOUSTON (KTRK) — For the first time on Monday night, we heard the story of a local woman who claims she was brutally attacked and raped while working for an American government contract company in Iraq. Now, we’re continuing the story with reaction from the company — KBR — and how other women say it happened to them too.

The story of 27-year-old Anna Mayo is graphic.

“He was grabbing my hair and grabbing my hair, and my face and at one point he had my face and he was ripping it, he had gloves on and I was biting him so hard, I could taste, I could taste the gloves, I could taste the blood, I could taste the smell,” she said.

Mayo was working at KBR’s Ballad (Joint Base Balad) Facility in Iraq last November when a man claiming to be a maintenance worker attacked as she lay sleeping in her bed.

“I remember poking him in the eyeballs because he was on top of me, and I took my nail and digged it into his eye, and it’s like he was mocking me,” she said.

He put a rope around her neck and she passed out. When she came to, she was being raped.

“It was almost like a relief because it didn’t hurt as bad as when he was ripping my face off,” Mayo said.

Her injuries left her in intensive care.

“A girl that I worked with at the warehouse came in, looked at me, sat down and fainted — that’s how much of a monster I was,” Mayo said.

Mayo has filed a lawsuit against the government contractor and subsidiaries, saying, “It is not the first time that KBR has had problems with sexual violence in its workspaces, nor the first time that it has been put on notice of these rampant violent behaviors.”

But KBR says it in no way condones or tolerates illegal or unethical behavior saying “Sexual misconduct is not tolerated. Ms. Mayo’s allegations to the contrary are not correct.”

KBR employee Anna Mayo recalls attack in Iraq (Updated)

This is the full interview with Anna Mayo (approximately 20 minutes)

 

Christine Dobbyn – HOUSTON (KTRK) — A Houston woman is telling her story of survival for the first time on camera. She is a former KBR contractor who began working in Iraq in November of 2008.

Anna Mayo says what happened to her one morning in her sleeping quarters changed her life forever. While we don’t normally identify rape victims, the young woman says she wants her story heard.

In the fall of 2008, Anna Mayo left Austin to work as a KBR contractor in Iraq. Within a month, she was promoted to an operations specialist with project management.

“I loved it,” Mayo said. “I moved up really fast; I got a lot of responsibility.”

And then Mayo was moved to the night shift, so that meant sleeping during the day.

“I had a sign on my room that said daysleeper, please come back after 14:00,” she said.

On a November morning in 2009, there was a knock on her sleeping container door. She opened it to find a man she says was not an American.

“He told me that he needed to come in and check something in my bathroom,” Mayo said. Read the remainder of this entry »

Attacks against women escalating at Camp Adder, Iraq

Two days ago I blogged about the sexual assault of a US soldier that occurred the last week of August 2010 at Camp Adder Iraq. It just keeps getting worse!

Below is a wanted posted issued by the Provost Marshall Office (PMO) at Camp Adder Tallil, Iraq. It looks like there may be a serial rapist/attacker on the loose. According to this poster there have been two more attacks from October 18, 2010 to October 20, 2010.

These photos depict a person(s) wearing military clothing. Although this attacker could very well be a US soldier, I caution you not to rule out everyone else. Military issue clothing is not difficult to get.  If the attacker is a civilian, he could be using this as a disguise to draw attention away from himself. Don’t rule anything out.

If you have information regarding these incidents please contact the Tallil Provost Marshal Office DSN 318-833-1246. If the Tallil Provost Marshal Office has an email address that could be published so people could email information please send it.

If you don’t feel comfortable contacting the PMO yourself, send your information to me by clicking HERE and I will forward it for you.

This/these cowardly bastard(s) need to be caught. Then I say….“GIVE THE VICTIMS A TASER AND LET THEM HAVE A FEW MINUTES ALONE WITH HIM!”
