Top Marine Rejects Plan To Repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”

The head of the United States Marines said he opposes ending the ban on gays serving openly in the military, the first top military officer to take sides against President Barack Obama over the issue.

General James Conway told the Senate Armed Services Committee yesterday that he disagrees with Obama’s plan to repeal the ban, commonly known as “Don’t ask, don’t tell”.

“My best military advice to this committee, to the (defense) secretary, and to the president would be to keep the law such as it is.”

Conway said the current policy worked and any bid to lift the ban should answer the question: “do we somehow enhance the war fighting capabilities of the United States Marine Corps by allowing homosexuals to openly serve?”

Is this really the best time to readdress this issue, when our military is  in the midst of fighting two wars?

    • But will B-HO listen to his top commanders? Does he really care about what’s best for our military?

      I don’t feel this is the right time to make this change, in the middle of fighting two wars with who knows what on the horizon.

      Personally, I won’t be surprised if he push’s the “coming out” through. I don’t believe he has our military’s or our country’s best interests at heart.

Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.
