In answer to a weeks-old query, the Pentagon has released details of eight confirmed abuse cases -- a female soldier took off her blouse, exposing her T-shirt during an interrogation, climbed onto the lap of a prisoner and rustled his hair; a medical team found a prisoner's knees bruised from a now forbidden interrogation technique.

Educators worry the trend is eroding America's position as the world's leader in higher education.
