A Heinous Crime or...

To be clear: If this happened and the perpetrators are convicted no penalty is too harsh.

See this.
A Houston, Texas woman says she was gang-raped by Halliburton/KBR coworkers in Baghdad, and the company and the U.S. government are covering up the incident.
Ms. Jones has a website here.
The Jamie Leigh Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping United States citizens and legal residents who are victims of sexual harassment, rape and sexual abuse while working abroad for federal contractors, corporations, or government entities.
Conservative blogs and websites have said similar to what I offered with my opening sentence. Left leaning sites have already convicted Bush and Cheney.

The reasoning seems to be that some of Bush's Executive Orders are aiding and abetting corporations like Halliburton and Blackwater in breaking several laws.

One of the EOs can be found here. Some discussion of this and several other related EOs by Jerry Corsi and others can be found here.

So we have several EOs that were in place when this particular incident is alleged to have occurred in 2005.

So, for two years Ms. Jones kept quiet and next month there will be an interview with her on ABCs 20/20 to promote her foundation.

There is one assailant named in court records and 6 John Does.

That most of the current information available.

I'm continuity fascinated by those that will take limited information, a hatred of Bush and Cheney, weave a complex (befuddled?) scenario, and then started hunting for the first lynch mob they can join.

Many who would be outraged by such a rush to judgment in other contexts seem to develop an almost maniacal glee over stuff like this.
