Sheehan sets the stage but fails to draw the conclusion.
This degree of widespread abuse and terrorism cannot occur without complicity if not outright encouragement at all levels of leadership. There must be a culture of degradation of women soldiers in the military by that leadership. Hence they discourage females to join the military by abusing and terrorizing them (and in some cases effectively murdering them). Creating this kind of culture is a crime and these military leaders, ALL of these leaders (including the civilian ones at the top like Bush himself) need to be brought to trial for it.
