[JURIST] A long-awaited reported to Congress by the US Defense Department Inspector General has concluded that "leadership failures" by multiple Air Force secretaries, military chiefs of staff, legal officers and superintendents of the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs resulted in a decade of sexual abuse and harassment of female cadets at the elite facilty. Inspector General Joseph Schmitz wrote: "We consider the root cause of the sexual assault problems at the Air Force Academy to be the failure of successive chains of command over the last 10 years to acknowledge the severity of the problem." The report did not, however, recommend specific disciplinary action. Reuters has more. The full text of the report is not yet available online.
