LIVE: Senate + House Armed Services Committee Hearings on DADT

Watch the House’s live feed here. The Senate’s feed is here.

Air Force chief Gen. Norton Schwartz (pictured) at House: “This is not the time to perturb the force that is at the time stretched … without careful deliberation. And two, should the laws change, our standards of conduct will continue to apply to all airmen.”

Army chief Gen. George Casey at Senate: (to Sen. Reed) “I have heard nothing from anyone about any conflicts with British or Canadian soldiers … that have already implemented that policy.”

Army Sec. John McHugh is also before the Senate.

    I watched and i have faith that we will get a stoppage of discharges which is awesome for someone who is taking his next step to join up later this week. ie me.

    Nothing happened. It will studied until after the midterms and then forgotten.

    There are not enough votes to repeal DADT in the US Senate and there will be even fewer after the midterms.

    The LGBT Community will not gain any ground with Obama – much like the Clinton years. It’s all bull-shit. We waste a ton of money and effort with politics and yet we never get anything. When will we learn?

    @Josh AZ: Good question, but a better one for you is…

    What should we be doing? Can you answer that? If not, why waste our time with negative remarks?

  • Josh AZ

    @AlanInSLCUtah: It wasn’t a negative remark, it was a wake-up call.

    We should be figuring out how to win. I just don’t think we will until we let go of political silliness. It’s just a complete waste of time.
