Army officials say the manager of the sexual assault response program at Ft. Campbell has been arrested in a domestic dispute and relieved of his post.
Lt. Col. Darin Haas turned himself in to police on charges of violating an order of protection and stalking. A spokesman for the post said Haas was immediately removed as manager of a program meant to prevent sexual harassment and assault and encourage equal opportunity.
MSGT Pete Mayes said Haas and his ex-wife have orders of protection against each other. Sgt. Chuck Gill of the Clarksville police department said Hass's ex-wife said he repeatedly contacted her Wednesday night despite the order.
Allegations of sexual assault in the military have triggered outrage from local commanders to Capitol Hill and the White House.
Ibrahim Jadoon will graduate with honors this weekend from Centre College in Danville. His family left Pakistan and moved to the U.S. when he was three. When Osama bin Laden was captured two years ago just blocks from Jadoon's former home, he did a lot of reflecting.
"It was disappointing because, if people don't know, Pakistan is a relatively new nation," explained Jadoon. "I realize it was the Pakastani government's poor border security, it's inability to remove extremist militant groups like the Taliban, and it's general dysfunction that enabled bin Laden to stay hidden for so long."
Jadoon often thinks about how his life would have been different had his family stayed in Pakistan.
"The United States, for all of its faults we sometime talk about in the news, unequivocally houses the best institutes of higher education in the world," said Jadoon. "I feel lucky just to be in the U.S., but in about four days when I graduate, I will join the surprisingly seven percent of the world that actually has a college degree."
The Pakistani-American spoke to Lisa Autry about how his life may have turned out had his family had not left Pakistan, and what he thinks are the prospects for a democracy in his home country.
Federal investigators have concluded that the crew of a cargo ship ignored radioed and visual warnings about lights being out on a western Kentucky bridge in the moments leading up to a wreck.
National Transportation Safety Board investigators said on Tuesday that the crew of the Delta Mariner used only visual cues and went under the wrong span of the Eggner's Ferry Bridge near Aurora, Ky., in January 2012. The wreck tore down a 322-foot span of the bridge over the Tennessee River.
Investigators also concluded that white warning lights on the bridge had been out for several years and other lights shorted out before the wreck. The missing span halted traffic on U.S. 68 between the western shore of Kentucky Lake and the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area.
