An independent investigating panel on Monday accused three past Air Force Academy administrators, the current dean of faculty and “the highest levels of Air Force leadership” for failing to stop sexual assault at the school, reports the Rocky Mountain News.

In a stinging 141-page report, the panel also blasted an earlier Air Force probe, saying it ignored key facts and “attempted to shield Air Force Headquarters from public criticism.”

The report made 21 key recommendations, including a call for the academy to give assault victims an option to remain anonymous. The panel, created by Congress to provide an outside review of problems at the academy, called for a full investigation to determine if academy and Air Force leaders should be held accountable.
