Defense Sec. Robert Gates Really Wants Your DADT Answers!

With just two days to go before the Pentagon’s Aug. 15 deadline to collect the opinions of military personnel on whether they’d be freaked out by a bunch of homos, Defense Sec. Robert Gates is making one last stab to collect responses.

In a letter to troops, Gates asks, “If you have not yet responded, please participate. Your response will help us assess the impact of a change in the ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ law and associated policy on military readiness, effectiveness and unit cohesion, should such a change occur.” And keep in mind: “Your answers will not be linked to your personal identity. No one associated with the Defense Department will have access to identifiable data.”

I don’t know why you wouldn’t want to trust him with your privacy.
