    I posted this in another thread on this topic, repeating it here. Read and see what you think: Don't ask when: Repeal of gay ban won't be soon - Yahoo! News

    As that study gets under way, officials were expected by mid-March to suggest ways to relax enforcement of the law. Of particular interest is minimizing cases of "third party outings," where a service member is kicked out after being reported by others to be gay.

    The protracted time line is about more than giving military leaders time to assess the impact on troops and put new rules in place. The multiyear process also is a strategic way of getting troops used to the idea before they have to accept change. Politically, the time line puts off congressional debate over lifting the ban until after elections this fall.
    Leaving aside the cowardice of putting off the vote till after elections this fall, it sounds like the military is going to go slowly with this and try and handle it as painlessly as possible.

    What sort of gay-hating homophobic fascists would implement something like 'dont ask don't tell' in the first place? Such bigotry.

    Probably the same sort of filth that would cheat on their wives repeatedly, and with barely legal interns.

    Likely -- the character of such people is questionable at best.

    And whose supporters would argue that its OK to commit such a felony, so long as that felony involves consentual sex.

    IOW, it's ok to lie about some things while under oath?

    Yes, but just the things -they- think it is OK to lie about -- other opinions need not apply.

    Well, I think it is ok to lie about how much money is being spent to kill terrorists.

    I thought this was about Cheney and gays in the military, not a general attack on Clinton.
