Comments: WHEN AND HOW?

Two lines go good together in your post; “…according to The New York Times” and “Something is just not right here.”

‘Nuff said.

I hadn't read anything about Iraqi insurgent rapes either, and hubby's field would have heard about it first to investigate.

What I have heard about was Colonel Karpinski's claims of how all allied female soldiers are being raped and beaten and tortured and dying from bladder infections because of our own guys.

I read that too and had the SAME reaction. My BS monitor clicked into overdrive.....

Huh? Why is it rare for news agencies to check the facts of their articles BEFORE they publish them? Probably because it is easier to just give an insincere apology when they are caught. Unfortunately my BS meter seems to go off in conjunction with just about ANY of the big news agencies.

I totally agree with Tim.

It is easy to confuse a Jihadi website with the New York Times. Surely the person that is writing the article was confusing the two. There are plenty reports of Jihadi's raping US female soldiers on jihadi websites.

Honest mistake. NY Times...Jihadi Today...who can tell the difference?

Remember, this is from the same profession that reported the capture of a 12-inch American action figure and accuses Coalition troops of throwing unfired bullets at Iraqi crones.

"walk her home after she stood post" presumably, she stood her post with a waepon, most likely an M-16. how was she not able to defend herself while walking but she could defend the post from attack. This story is completely false. I will tell you if a single American woman had been reported to have been raped by an insurgent, our troops would gone into overdrive to both protect these women and find the perpetrators.
