I heard attorney Susan Burke interviewed about this on Bill Maher’s show. She is representing military women in a “series of lawsuits designed to reform the manner in which the military prosecutes rape and sexual assault.”

She mentioned that when they talk to Pentagon offiials about this problem they are always told that the US military has a “zero tolerance” for sexual assault, but when they actually get into court, the defense is often the statement that sexual assault is “an occupational hazard.” !!!!!
