It's got to be tough for these guys to buck the ACORN in Chief who is making a serious effort to screw up the military by allowing open homosexuality to wreak havoc on our force structure in the middle of a war.
Imagine. Gay marriage will be the next stop; quaters for homosexual couples. And lets not forget bisexuals. Have to let the bed room determine social policy in the band of Brothers (and Sisters) who are dying to keep us free.
Chiefs of Navy, Army, Air Force, and Marines Oppose DADT Repeal
The heads of the Army, Marines, Air Force, and Navy oppose the current amendment to repeal "don't ask, don't tell." Senator John McCain's office just released letters from the chiefs of the armed services, as well as a statement from the senator urging Congress to let the military complete its study before taking legislative action.
“I cannot over emphasize the importance of completing the comprehensive review prior to taking any legislative action," says McCain. "Our military is currently engaged in two wars and we need to have a true assessment of the impact of repealing ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’ on battlefield effectiveness prior to taking any legislative action. We must remain focused on what is in the best interest of our service men and women and not simply fulfill a campaign promise.”
McCain has written a letter to Levin opposing repeal. Here are excerpts from the service chiefs' letters:
“I remain convinced that it is critically important to get a better understanding of where our Soldiers and Families are on this issue, and what the impacts on readiness and unit cohesion might be, so that I can provide informed military advice to the President and the Congress,” said General George W. Casey, Jr, U.S. Army. “I also believe that repealing the law before the completion of the review will be seen by the men and women of the Army as a reversal of our commitment to hear their views before moving forward.”
So, once again we have this blithering idiot not acting out of what is right or wrong or best... but instead, out of political expediency.
