“No Guarantee.”

Last week’s report blasting Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, backed by four retired military officials, remains inadequate, says activsts Dixon Osburn: “The Palm Center Study Group report’s first and primary recommendation is that “Congress should repeal [DADT] and return authority for personnel policy under this law to the Department of Defense.”… By returning authority to regulate gays to the Pentagon, the Palm Center Study Group proposal allows the Pentagon to reinstitute a regulatory ban on gays in place of the law, just as it had done from World War II to 1993…There is no guarantee that we would like the result coming out of the Pentagon.” [Bilerico]
