Justice Dept Refuses To Attend Congressional Hearing On Halliburton Rape Cases

The Department of Justice refused to send a representative to answer questions from Congress today on the investigations into allegations of rape and sexual assault on female American contractors.

"I'm embarrassed that the Department of Justice can't even come forward," said the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee John Conyers, D-Mich.

Does justice mean anything in the US?

They do not want to investigate these rape cases.
They do not want to investigate the missing CIA torture tapes.

Are they hoping that it will all go away and that people will eventually forget?

Why keep trolling?  You can do better than this.

You don't like it when 'foreigners' interfere with internal affairs in China to China bash.  Why do you insist on doing the same.

Chang,

You will be wasting your time and energy to try and protest against these loop-holes in the execution of the laws in the US of A . If you look back to the " Wild West " genre of movies and comic books , that is the best explanation you can get regarding the behavior of the present day Americans too .

Their laws are a plenty : beautifully crafted, honorably written and imbued with god and the biblical exaltations to one and all !! All prim and proper and all motherhood quality . Then comes the application and the enforcement . Now we do run into a tad of a problem . There are roughly two groups of Americans . This is necessary because it determines how and if those beautiful laws apply or not .  

Government officials , departments and elected members to Congress generally escape confrontations with little things like embezzlement of a billion or two , a rape or three or a murder of a foreign person.  More easily , we see that the women , the colored , the poor , the lower social scale members and ALL foreigners  can be treated which ever way the sheriff of the day chooses.    Remember the good guy with the white hat and the baddies with black hats. I do wish they still wear these to help us work our way through  the morass.

Back to this woman raped by her colleagues in Iraq .  Being a woman , she is likely to have to prove that she was not " asking for it , dressed inappropriately and making eyes at the hard working boys " over there. Her past history of sexual experience will need to come out for public scrutiny , Her demeanor at the trial will be monitored and assessed by a SMS and phone in voting system to determine her guilt or otherwise . If she is good, " Big Brother " may sign her on one of their shows next year . Watch this space . It can only happen in America. !!

Why is it US bashing? It is current news, you know,  something that is being reported in the US media, who have suddenly found that they have a responsibilty to question things that their government are doing.

It's a pity that they have left if for about four years or so.
They should have questioned these things about four years ago!

It is not us doing the bashing but the US media who have suddenly realised that they were muzzled for too long!

Did dumBya not say that he was going to write some comics when he leaves office? Or is that a rumour?

He certainly speaks the language of those comics, you know:

"dead or alive"
"with us or against us"
"bring em on"
...
