Clinton SecDef (R) Opposes "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"

Money quote:

Later the same day in which General Shalikashvili's article appeared, former Defense Secretary William Cohen agreed with the general during an interview on CNN that Congress needs to revisit the issue of the ban on openly lesbian, gay and bisexual service personnel. Mr. Cohen's statement also reflected a change of heart on the matter.

I think what we're hearing from within the military we're hearing from within society, that we're becoming a much more open, tolerant society for diverse opinions and orientation,” Mr. Cohen stated. He referred to the ban as a form of discrimination.

OYE Comment: If heterosexuals don't care enough to Be A Man! Enlist!, why care if non-heterosexuals do?

So it's come to this? Cowardly republicans aren't man enough to fight the war they started, so now it's up to the gays they openly despise to step up and defend this nation. They should be ashamed, but they have no shame.

You fraud. The only reason he's advocating gays in the military is because they are running out of people to enlist. Suddenly, it's just fine to be gay and be in the military. Don't ask don't tell my ass. I don't think it's safe for gays to serve in the military because of all of the homophobia among the troops. Fight the war your god damned selves you BIG HETERO MEN!
