The Obama Administration betrays gay Americans yet again.
Yes, I know boasting is vulgar, but I told you so.
Note the delicious feature of the “compromise”: the process ends in December with a formal finding by the Secretary of Defense and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs that the change will not impact readiness.
Obama has been willing to accept the hostility of the advocacy groups in order to get the thing done right. More likely than not in an unjust world, that hostility will continue even after the deed is done. Obama has done some unheroic stuff, but in my book this makes him a hero. Real moral courage isn’t standing up to your enemies; it’s standing up to your friends.
Update And I’m with James Fallows: the minute the bill passes, the universities that got rid of ROTC should reinstate it, effective the day DADT ends.
