The climate and culture of the Academy was brought to light last sping at a briefing in April and official hearing on the Hill last June before Congress. This has been a problem for a while. Pressure from Rosa DeLauro to investigate the truth brought about the Task Force

I love how certain people in certain places get to play the "privacy card". Details should definitely be released on what happened. If its not sexual it must be racist. Always something to hide..........

Thank you, Jesse, for a well written and informative article. I have been following the Webster smith case since it bagan. You know almost as much as I. It is unfortunate that the Coast guard feels that they cannot make a full disclosure. I cannot imagine what they think they are protecting. Those in the Coast Guard and cadets at the Academy know the full story. It is only the American public and readers around the world who are being denied all of the facts. It is one thing to spin a story; it is quite another to refuse to divulge on the pretext of privacy issues.

the admiral was brewing his own beer, what a wonderful example, maybe that is why the female cadets were all so drunk one could not remember if she was raped or not, she also should have not been given the position she received , she should have received the same treatment as cadet webster smith

the admiral was brewing his own beer, there was a court martrial an one cadet testified she was so drunk she couldn't remember if she was raped or not, then had sex with mr smith the next night and morning. she should have not been given the position she was given, she should also been expelled, another one admitted she texed messaged him 21 times in one day, but she was sexual harrased. they should have been given the same treatment as cadet smith
