Anyone who followed this man’s blatant disregard for the directives of his commander-in-chief knows that the only thing that has changed is that he doesn’t want to be remembered as a bigot. Colon Powell is the person most singularly responsible for DADT. All he had to do was agree with his president’s wishes.
I smell a future bid for the White House, maybe on a centrist ticket for the GOP (who after all got badly burned in 2008 through Rightwing lunacy). Watch this space!
Yes Colin Powell fell foul of “W” so he can’t be all that bad…..
“More than 13,000 servicemembers have been fired since it was introduced, having come out or been outed by third parties.”
I hope the 13,000 sue the US government for discrimination.
Thank you, Colin Powell.
This is great news if you consider it a good thing to have war criminals and sickeningly craven political opportunists as allies.
I used to highly respect this man until he proved himself to be just another gutless and heartless, lying and thieving politician.
Don’t forget that this is the man who went to the UN and sold the whole “weapons of mass destruction” meme, to rally the USA and its allies to war, when HE KNEW that what he was saying was not true.
He is also the man who spit in the face of his Commander in Chief and fought him tooth and nail to prevent the full repeal of the anti-gay military ban.
It’s about time we cleared up the communication gap in the armed forces:
Thank you, Mr. Powell.
Young American soldiers just don’t care if a soldier is gay or not:
Powell has changed his, that’s all:
The Fall of DADT:

Withers: Discharged soldier offers ideas on how to dismantle DADT:
Let’s see you become a former secretary of state and joint chief of staff, and then let’s see what you can do about DADT between your pints, and your BNP.
