A newly-surfaced report shows that the United States concluded years ago that women were systematically forced into sexual slavery by the Japanese military during World War Two.
That was the determination made back in 2007 by a working group tasked with going through classified U.S. records to identify war crimes related to the Nazis and Imperial Japan.
After combing through more than 8.5 million pages of documents, they concluded that the Japanese military had contracted private vendors to set up so-called "comfort stations" for its troops dating back to as early as 1932.
The group sent their findings on to the U.S. Congress.
