AFA Rape Investigation

The Air Force has identified 54 cases of rape or sexual assault in its investigation into impropriety at the Air Force Academy.

And Air Force Secretary James Roche (roach) says there are
likely many more cadets who will not come forward.

Roche told the Senate Armed Services Committee that
investigators have learned enough to realize that change must
occur.

Roche says the Defense Department's inspector general will
follow-up on several cases where the alleged victim felt the system
let them down.

Colorado Senator Wayne Allard says he believes the situation at
the academy is worse than the 1991 Tailhook Scandal. That's when
dozens of women complained they were groped or assaulted by drunken
pilots at a Navy booster group's convention.
