Pentagon winning its battle against meaningful sexual assault reform: Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand's law to take the chain of command out of sexual assault cases

The Pentagon's utter failure, despite repeated promises to the contrary, to lessen sexual assaults in the armed forces was the reason for Gillibrand's attempt to remove the military's authority to prosecute rape. The military's response has been a full court press in lobbying to defeat her legislation and to make more promises that it will do what it hasn't done despite decades of waiting.
     Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel is adamantly opposed to Gillibrand's reform.
