Air Force Academy: Who's in Charge?
The Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, having just gone through a major scandal over sexual assaults, is about to face another crisis --over ethics:
Prohibited conduct — academic cheating, intoxication on and off academy grounds, leaving the academy without permission and sex in dormitories — occurs "with enough frequency and impunity to indicate a serious likelihood that future incidents will subject the (academy) to public embarrassment and criticism," said the report by the Los Angeles-based Josephson Institute of Ethics.
Who's in charge? Doesn't the responsibility for choosing the head of a military Academy fall to the Defense Department? Maybe Rumsfeld needs to pay more attention to what's happening under his nose than on the other side of the world.
