"You’ve seen or heard the news about the rising incidence of sexual assaults in the U.S. military. Our automatic assumption is that most were women. Not so. What you’re not told by the State Run Media is that the majority of those sexual assaults are male-on-male. And the incidence of male-on-male sexual assaults is increasing. Welcome to the Obama military! gay soldiers Scarborough reports for The Washington Times, May 20, 2013, that a recent Pentagon survey shows more military men than women are sexually abused in the ranks each year, but those man-on-man sexual assaults are underreported. The Pentagon’s 1,400-page annual report came with two basic sets of data: official reports of sex crimes and a scientific survey sample of the 1.4 million active force from which the department extrapolated the number of abuses, regardless of whether they were officially reported In fiscal year 2012, which ended on September 30, 26,000 service members were victims of sexual assaults, But roughly 14,000 of the victims were male and 12,000 female, according to a scientific survey sample produced by the Pentagon."

"... roughly 14,000 of the victims were male and 12,000 female, according to a scientific survey sample produced by the Pentagon."
So the scientific study indicates that un-reported sexual crime in the military has increased but mainly the increase is in male on male assaults.
Since it is DoD's own data that is under discussion here one can only conclude that the armed forces are being abused in public over this because:
- The Chiefs know that the BHO Administration has a pro-gay agenda and will not support them if they speak the truth about this.
- The collection of Harpies in the senate who are raging over their sense of victimization will not listen to reason.
- John McCain's lunatic outburst yesterday must have some as yet hidden motivation.
IMO the data in these studies is being used to abuse the military leadership for the purpose of making them more amenable to various agenda items. The JCS have been remarkably resistant to the idea of US intervention in Syria. What better way to bring them "to heel" than this distortion of statistical data?
McCain, ah well, this bandwagon will work for him if it leads to war in Syria. pl
