"...An essay just published in Joint Force Quarterly, a journal published by the National Defense University Press, shoots cannonballs through the argument that gays undermine troop morale and unit cohesion. Among its findings: Australia, Britain, Canada, and Israel, all of which lifted bans on gays in the military, have seen 'no impact' on troop performance, readiness, or cohesion. Did I mention that the essay's author, Col. Om Prakash, works for the secretary of defense and that the article was personally reviewed by Adm. Michael Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff? That's not the only sign of change, said Gabriel Winant in Salon.com. A discharged gay Arabic linguist, Lt. Daniel Choi, was even invited to lecture at West Point recently. In the end, it might be admirals and generals, and not Obama, who put 'don't ask' where it belongs: in the trash can."
Look around folks. American politicians are again showing that the U.S. is far from a world leader on yet another issue. Remember, don't ask them what is right. Tell them!
