    Gates to Congress: Hold off on DADT

    Its nice to see the SECDEF taking into considerations the feelings of the people who DADT affects and not a few militant gays and a bunch of "Feel Good Liberals" who it does not affect at all........

    Thank you Mr Gates......

    Gates to Congress: Hold off on DADT
    Updated: 5/1/10 4:47 PM EDT.


    “I strongly oppose any legislation that seeks to change this policy prior to the completion of this vital assessment process,” Gates said in a letter sent Friday to Rep. Ike Skelton (D-Mo.), the chairman of the House Armed Services Committee. “I hope Congress will not do so, as it would send a very damaging message to our men and women in uniform that in essence their views, concerns and perspectives do not matter on an issue with such a direct impact and consequence for them and their families.”

    So, Obama agrees with something you agree with and you attack him because he let down his base?

    Err, I thought this was the plan already? He's asking congress to do something they're already doing.

    I support Robert Gates. Let the Pentagon confirm that most people in the military don't mind serving with gays. That'll give those who want to repeal DADT more legitimacy.

    It's going to happen, and it's probably going to happen next year. DADT is history, and about time.

    He's letting the Pentagon finish their investigations. How does that not look good for those who want to repeal DADT? All that will happen from those investigations is show how most military personnel don't care about sexual orientation. If anything this helps those who want to repeal DADT.

    I just don't think that any investigation except an independant one can be trusted. There's too much politics shrouded around this. The outcome seems like it can be changed to whatever it needs to be at the end of the day.
