    Group Seeks 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' Injunction

    A gay rights group will ask a federal judge Thursday to order the Pentagon to stop enforcing "don't ask, don't tell," the law barring gays from serving openly in the military.

    The group the Log Cabin Republicans already won a big victory last week in the same case. U.S. District Judge Virginia Phillips said the law violates the First and Fifth Amendments of the Constitution. Now, attorney Dan Woods, who represents the gay-rights group, is looking for a more practical ruling.

    "We want her to block any further enforcement or application of don't ask, don't tell wherever we have military operations not just in California, not just in this country but wherever we have military bases anywhere in the world," he said.

    A Pentagon official said government lawyers will likely object to a court injunction. There has been no word from the Justice Department.

    Doesn't look to good for the anti gay crowd lately

    What court that actually has authority to rule on military issues are they going to get this injunction from? The last judges ruling didn't mean squat., why would a new one make any difference?

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    It's going to be even worse for the anti-DADT folks, since DADT isn't the law that bans gays from serving in the military.

    I'm going to laugh my ass off, when DADT is abolished and there's nothing to protect gays serving in the miltiary.
