Senator Hillary Clinton promised voters that she’ll try to overturn Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell: the discriminatory policy that forbids soldiers from coming out. Regardless of the Democrats lofty goals of equality, Clinton wants gay military men and women to watch themselves:
In Tama, an Air Force veteran asked Clinton about her support for allowing gays to serve openly in the military. How would privacy be protected, he asked?
Clinton said she believed all service members, including gays, must be expected to observe the Uniform Code of Military Justice, which determines appropriate behavior.
“I feel strongly that if someone wants to serve their country, if they’re a patriot, if they’ll comply with the code of military justice and have appropriate behavior, they should not be disqualified simply because they are gay.”
Who knew a presidential candidate could be so ironic?
