Time For Change

The United States policy pertaining to gays and lesbians serving in the military, known as “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” came into being in 1993 during the Clinton administration.

Last night, Clifford Alexander, former Secretary of the Army appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show. He presented the most cogent and forceful argument I have ever heard against “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell”. You can watch the video below.

lee, that was a really great story. i couldn't agree more. in my opinion, don't ask don't tell treats gays as second class citizens. in much the same way as the military used to treat women. a person's sexual orientation has nothing to do with if they can perform the job they are required to do.
