2. An unnamed source has told People Magazine that the general in charge of this school reportedly said that a woman "WILL pass this course, no matter what". The source also claims that the women were given extra time to prepare for their tests and limitless turns on the obstacle course. The source also alleges that 3 weeks into the course almost all the women had dropped out, so this general flew out there to lean on the instructors to pass SOME women. The Army has refused to comment on this matter. Do you tend to believe these allegations?

I absolutely believe they're true.
