The U.S. Defense Department has released a report criticizing a former leader of the Air Force Academy but saying he didn't impede an investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct and drug use by football players. The Pentagon's inspector general found that former superintendent Lt. Gen. Mike Gould shielded a football coach from questioning, The Colorado Springs Gazette reported (http://tinyurl.com/ju2hyom). The Air Force Academy issued a statement saying the report found no system-wide problem but academy leaders still have a duty to improve the culture and climate at one of the nation's leading academies.
