“Don’t Ask, Don”Tell, Don’t Keep This Stupid Policy”

President Obama has made it clear to Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and joint chairman Mike Mullern, there has to be an end to the “don’t ask, don’t tell,” policy that was initiated when Bill Clinton was president. White House spokesperson, Robert Gibbs told reporters, that Obama wants to repeal the policy “in a way that is least disruptive to our troops, especially given that they have been simultaneously waging two wars for six years now.” Within the past week, the Pentagon went from saying there were no plans to repeal the policy to admitting there is study on how to accomplish the task.

President Obama is correct that any change should not be disruptive, but common sense suggests American troops would welcome any assistance even from those who are gay or lesbian. Why not use men and women who are committed to serving their nation while millions of “straight people” shy away from such service?
