Last week, Col. Janis Karpinski told a panel of judges at the Commission of Inquiry for Crimes against Humanity Committed by the Bush Administration in New York that several women had died of dehydration because they refused to drink liquids late in the day.

They were afraid of being assaulted or even raped by male soldiers if they had to use the women's latrine after dark.

Bud Tugly: This is left wing HORSESHIT.  
The ONLY source for the story is dicredited 1-star General Janice Karpinski?  
Thouroghly discredited officer in charge of Abu Gharib?  
Nice try.  
You get a big fat 1-vote from me.  
Next time post a real story, with real sources.
deathburger: Wow, they must have been pretty serious. I mean to discredit someone is bad, but to dicredit them? That's just mean!
Bud Tugly: They were pretty drunk at the time.
it certainly looks like horseshit, but I see no evidence that it's left-wing horseshit. Maybe you'd like to back that part up.
I call bullshit on this one
Mac: Here's a link to all female casualties to date...all 54 of them...with cause of death.  
Point to the 'several' she claims died cause they couldn't piss.
an cow: I emailed her and sent your link --  
"Here's a link to all female casualties to date...all 54 of them...with cause of death.  
Which ones where you talking about in the article? For this to have any credibility, there needs to be some type documents to back up these claims."--  
I had heard this story before, months ago, and since the article stated "This problem has become so acute that the Army has set up its own sexual assault web site.", I presumed there was some type fact check on it.  
I agree that there is so much propaganda coming from both sides, everything should be scrutinized.  
Yeah, this sets my Bullshit meter off, too.
LowFlyingMule: A male soldier in Iraq is so sex-starved that he will stay up all hours of the night for the chance to  
rape a potentially armed woman that needs to pee?  
Damn, no wonder recruitment is down.  
Not holding up under rudimentary scrutiny
Mac: Not holding up under rudimentary scrutiny:  
What's a little slander of soldiers in the cause of a 'larger truth?'  
From Karpinski's speech:  
For example, Maj. Gen. Walter Wojdakowski, Sanchez's top deputy in Iraq, saw "dehydration" listed as the cause of death on the death certificate of a female master sergeant in September 2003. Under orders from Sanchez, he directed that the cause of death no longer be listed, Karpinski stated. The official explanation for this was to protect the women's privacy rights.  
One problem. No female master sergeants have died in Operation Iraqi Freedom. I suppose this is fake, but accurate enough to use as a slur against our military as being such a bunch of appalling rapists that women will dehydrate themselves rather than risk having to go to the bathroom at night for fear of rape. Who cares if the story is actually true? What matters is that people think the worst about our military. Don't forget, they support the troops.
