Bush Picks Regni to Run Air Force Academy

From Times Wire Reports

Lt. Gen. John F. Regni was nominated by President Bush to be superintendent of the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs as the school works to recover from scandals over sexual assaults and religious intolerance.

Regni is commander of the Air University at Maxwell Air Force Base, Ala. He will replace Lt. Gen. John Rosa Jr., who is stepping down to become president of the Citadel, a military college in Charleston, S.C.

Dozens of female cadets at the academy have said they were punished or forced to resign after reporting that they were sexually assaulted.
