  1. Whilst the proposals are to repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell in the short term, the policy would stay in force for almost a year more while the Armed Forces “study” the effects of allowing gays to serve openly.
    Also, the authority to allow gays to serve would pass to the Pentagon, who could easily choose to keep the policy in place if they chose. Theoretically they could even make the regulations even tighter and ban gays from serving at all.
    This article doesn’t make this clear (see http://advocate.com/News/Daily_News/2010/05/24/White_House_Green_Lights_DADT_Repeal/ for more information)

  2. A step in the right direction.

    Why, despite other armed forces world wide having zero issue with this are they still dragging their heals.

    One reason, and one reason alone.

    The Ulcerated Sphincter of @rse ( USA ) is still bogged down by religion.

  4. No Mr Obama. You promised to repeal it. Before you were elected. It only takes your signature. Stop pandering to other interests. And don’t tell me I don’t understand.
