Don't Ask, Don't . . . *yawn*

About the debate over whether or not to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell", this article posted at Stars and Stripes' website should end it. I know it really doesn't, but three consecutive town hall-style meetings with soldiers and sailors where DADT wasn't brought up until Admiral Mullen brought it up and, even then, the groups had way more pressing issues to discuss.


I'm also a little fuzzy on the notion that this policy keeps "teh gay" out of the Armed Forces like chicken wire keeps the vermin away from a garden. It does not and it was not originally intended to act like gay repellent. Just so happened that the way the policy was enforced led to more outings of gay and lesbian military personnel.
