‘What we don’t need is yet another study or national commission to look at repeal’

SOUNDBITES —“What we don’t need is yet another study or national commission to look at repeal. We all know those commissions involve delay and more delay and ‘kicking it down the road’ more that a little bit. I say, put together a working group within 30 days. Have them focus on implementing open service and charge them to report back to the President within 90 days with a detailed plan and a timeline and how to get it done in this Congress. … Good intentions are no substitute for the change our service members are counting on, especially those who might like to be relieved from a third or fourth or fifth tour in Iraq or Afghanistan. They really don’t care much if the person who relieves them is gay. Would you?” —Aubrey Sarvis, executive director of the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network, one of the only “Gay Inc.” organizations actually demanding the Obama administration make good on its campaign promise [HuffPo]
