As the Air Force Academy football team heads to West Point for the big game against Army this weekend, the new superintendent is going on the offense as the best defense against allegations the school has a culture of tolerating sexual violence by football players and other cadet athletes.
Johnson was appointed superintendent after an investigation led to the court-martials of two football players for sexual assault and the dismissals or resignations of 15 other cadets. The Air Force's rival this weekend, West Point Academy, is playing under its own cloud of scandal, as the school's athletic program has come under fire in recent days for allegedly using the lure of booze and women to recruit high school phenoms. But even as the Air Force Academy says it is trying to move forward, members of Congress are raising questions about the dismissal of a cadet who worked undercover to expose sexual violence.
For nearly a year, Eric Thomas worked as an undercover cadet, secretly feeding information to agents of the Air Force Office of Special Investigation about alleged sexual assaults and other crimes and misconduct by his fellow cadets. Thomasa€™s information helped break a code of silence about the sexual assaults and members of the football team, said Brandon Enos, the agent with the Office of Special Investigations who handled Thomas at the time.
ABC NewsUndercover cadet Eric Thomas and Air Force Office of Special Investigations agent Brandon Enos return to where they used to hold confidential meetings in a secluded spot on the Air Force Academy's campus. But despite the success of what was called Operation Gridiron, Thomas was branded a problem and dismissed from the Academy for misbehavior.


Thomas claims that many of the demerits he accumulated were because of his undercover assignment which required him to leave campus without approval and to attend parties with other cadet athletes. An investigation by the Air Force Inspector General concluded most of the demerits he earned were not connected to his undercover work.
Gould said he did not accept that Thomas played an important role in uncovering cases of sexual assault at the Academy. But even the Air Force Inspector General gives Thomas credit for helping to bring the cases in Operation Gridiron. And the agent who handled Thomas, Brandon Enos, says he was ordered not to come to Thomasa€™ defense at the hearing where his status was being decided. Enos says he also faced retaliation for his efforts in bringing the cases, forced out of the Air Force after being given what he calls punishment assignments. Thomas approached Protect Our Defenders, a group that traditionally represents service members who have been raped or sexually assaulted, for help with his case.
Thomas now works at a nutrition store at Ellsworth Air Force base near his home in South Dakota, still holding onto the dream that he might one day fly jets for the Air Force.


Gillibrand and Thune say an independent investigation is required a€?to get to the bottom of the facts concerning the circumstancesa€? of what happened to Enos and Thomas. General Michelle Johnson in an interview to be broadcast tonight on "ABC World News with David Muir" and "Nightline". John Thune, D-South Dakota, has asked for a new investigation of the Air Force handling of the case.
