Pentagon Releases Sex Cases Study

The army will be the army. Hopefully thi issue will now gather enough steam to hold those responsible accountable for their actions

WASHINGTON - Women at U.S. military academies say they have faced 302 incidents of sexual assault since they enrolled, a figure the military says is comparable to civilian schools.

"We are about where college campuses are, tragically. That's not, frankly, terribly surprising," said David Chu, undersecretary of defense for personnel and readiness. "These young men and women come from civil society."

On Friday, he announced the results of the Pentagon (news - web sites)'s first comprehensive study of assaults at the academies along with a new military-wide policy aimed at protecting the confidentiality of people who report being sexually assaulted.
