Senate Panel Continues ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ Hearings
Wednesday, March 17, 2010 at 1:43 pm
The Senate Armed Services Committee might still not have Gen. David Petraeus’s eight-minute statement on the military’s ban on open gay service, but tomorrow morning, hearings resume on the prospective end to “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” Two young mid-career ex-officers, Michael D. Almy, a former Air Force major, and Jenny L. Kopfstein, a former Navy lieutenant, are expected to testify about how the policy cost them their military careers. A retired Marine four-star general, John J. Sheehan, is expected to offer counterarguments for why the policy ought to remain in place. (If Sheehan’s name sounds familiar, you might be an Iraq war obsessive.)
