Do you really think you can make a partisan issue of something that was originally a compromise between the parties?
The fact of the matter is that this is an embarrassment to this COUNTRY!
The United States of America has made such an issue out of a nonissue that it is a great humiliation to see this continued to be enforced.
Keep it up Prof. While nations all over the world have no problem integrating openly gay soldiers, we continue to hurt our military readiness and capabilities by continuing this policy. That is really something you should be proud of on all fronts.

What gay stigma in ranks?
Opening arguments began Monday in former Maj. Margaret Witt's challenge of her discharge from the Air Force because of her sexuality. Witt, a lesbian, who was a highly regarded military nurse, is suing to be reinstated.

TACOMA — In his years of service at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, retired Master Sgt. James Schaffer testified in federal court on Monday, gay and lesbian members of his Air Force Reserve unit bore no stigma.
So in 2004, he was stunned to learn of an Air Force decision to suspend one member of his unit, Maj. Margaret Witt, for homosexual conduct that violated the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy.
"I felt it was a dishonorable act on the part of the Air Force," Schaffer testified Monday as the leadoff witness in a U.S. District Court trial to determine whether Witt, who was eventually forced into retirement, should be reinstated with the 446th Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron.
She shouldn''t have to win anything. She was highly decorated and did her job well. The military made an issue out of her sexual orientation. It's another case of how ridiculous this is.
