Obama Already Declining to Enforce DADT?
We expect the Department of Defense to announce at the Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on Feb. 2 that ”Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” discharges were down by almost 30 percent last year. Indeed, the department may release the discharge numbers before the hearing. As we alerted you here last week, the new trend is indeed welcoming news, but it is not a substitute for full repeal in 2010.
My emphasis. Crazy, right? At a time of two wars and an “extended surge” in Afghanistan, the Obama administration doesn’t want to throw qualified service personnel out the door just because they’re gay!
