    Military recruiters told to accept gay applicants

    Military recruiters told to accept gay applicants

    Military recruiters told to accept gay applicants - Yahoo! News


    WASHINGTON A Pentagon spokeswoman says recruiters have been told that they must accept gay applicants, following a federal court decision striking down the ban on gays serving openly in the military.
    Spokeswoman Cynthia Smith said Tuesday that top-level guidance has been issued to recruiting commands informing them that the military's "don't ask, don't tell" rule has been suspended for now. Recruiters also have been told to inform potential recruits that the moratorium could be reversed at any point.


    I think at this point it's over. It's sad to see that it took a judges order instead of giving the military time to prepare for the change.

    I suspect that before the appeal process is over, the legislature will act. The military evaluation is due Dec 1, so early next year is not an unrealistic scenario.

    It's more sad to see that it took a judge to do what Obama promised the gay community 'He' would do.

    Lets hope they put the support system in place to make this transition as easy on the troops as possible.

    My understanding is that he opposes the ruling because he thinks its better to do it through congress. So in an odd way, he is attempting to keep his promise. I personally think he should just drop it.

    I wonder if when all is said and done... does Obama claim credit for ending DADT?

    No if he did it on his own via executive order (which to me would have teeth, and show leadership), like that other president with integration, he might he felt and I am speculating, lose votes.

    I see. Well, speaking only for myself, I would have approved of his using an executive order to end the enforcement of the discharges while the end of the actual policy was debated and decided upon.
