Are grads of West Point, the Naval Academy, Air Force Academy, and Coast Guard Academy trained in leadership?

Update:

Edward - graduating is graduating and history has shown that position does not positively correlate with accomplishment. Nice try.

    Here are each academy's mission statements. You decide.

    U.S. Military Academy Mission:

    "To educate, train, and inspire the Corps of Cadets so that each graduate is a commissioned leader of character committed to the values of Duty, Honor, Country and prepared for a career of professional excellence and service to the Nation as an officer in the United States Army."

    Naval academy mission:

    is "to develop midshipmen morally, mentally and physically and to imbue them with the highest ideals of duty, honor and loyalty in order to provide graduates who are dedicated to a career of naval service and have potential for future development in mind and character to assume the highest responsibilities of command, citizenship and government."

    The Air Force Academy Mission is to educate, train and inspire men and women to become officers of character, motivated to lead the United States Air Force in service to our nation.

    "The United States Coast Guard Academy is committed to strengthening the nation's future by educating, training and developing leaders of character who are ethically, intellectually, professionally, and physically prepared to serve their country and humanity, and who are strong in their resolve to build on the long military and maritime heritage and proud accomplishments of the United States Coast Guard."

    Yes, and the ones who graduate 5th from the bottom of their class were obviously incapable of learning those lessons!
