There has been HUGE damage to the military and national security due to the repeal of DADT. Testimony in the article 32 hearing last week of PFC Bradley Manning, the Wikileaks source, revealed that his homosexuality was widely known and he had sent his commanding officer a photo of himself dressed as a woman and referred to himself as "Brianna". He stated that he had a gender identity problem. He was so unstable that the bolt had been removed from his weapon and despite all of this his access to classified info was never restricted. His immediate supervisor refused to testify at the hearing. Does anyone really think that if Obama hadn't let it be known that he wanted DADT repealed that Manning's behavior would have been tolerated?
