Defense chief giving 'don't ask, don't tell' a closer look - CNN.com
Apparently, the Obama appointees believe that gays/lesbians are stupid, and don't realize that this is far short of what was promised.For the first time, U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates is outlining potential Obama administration plans to enforce the "don't ask, don't tell" rule selectively so that some gays could serve in the military.
U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates says there may be flexibility in applying "don't ask, don't tell."
Gates said he is looking at ways to make the policy "more humane," including letting people serve who may have been outed due to vengeance or a jilted lover. The remarks appeared in a transcript the Pentagon released Tuesday.
In addition, Capt. John Kirby, spokesman for Adm. Michael Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Wednesday the chairman "supports the idea of a less draconian way of enforcing the policy."
