    Oooh, I’ve ‘ad ‘im. And t’other one too.

    This hasn’t had wide spread dissemination here in the U.S. It will be interesting to see what happens when more people hear of the comment.

  3. I think it’s worth noting that this is not a wholesale end to expelling gay soldiers. The heads of each branch have been tasked to take the pulse of the troops and several gay soldiers have come forward to talk to them. The Army secretary is only saying he won’t expel those soldiers. Anybody who comes out in other ways will still be tossed on his/her tookus.

  4. I guess it’s a step in the right direction, though I believe DADT should be thrown out as the bigoted, anachronistic piece of garbage that it is.

    It will indeed be interesting to see what will happens when news of Mr. McHugh’s stand becomes common knowledge.

  5. Isn’t is amusing that the US Army claims to be protecting US democracy, when they themselves are running an Apartheid regime in their own ranks.

    DADT needs to be cancelled entirely.

    Unless it is repealed by the next election, LGBT people should not vote for Obama.

    He is just another 2 faced political liar.
