Don’t Ask Don’t Tell Repeal an Unnecessary Distraction

Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell has been on the books for almost twenty years. President Clinton signed it into law as a compromise to allow homosexuals to serve in the military without facing harassment or discrimination. General James Amos, Commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps, has testified in favor of it before Congress; and a survey of U.S. Marines shows that the majority favor keeping the policy in place. With that in mind, ending it just doesn’t make sense.
