Pentagon vs. common soldiers?

Catholic World News - December 07, 2010

Robert Reilly argues that by recommending repeal of the "don't ask, don't tell" policy that bars avowed homosexuals from military duty, the US Defense Department has sacrificed combat readiness for political correctness-- and in the process, made life more dangerous for American troops.

    The Pentagon sacrificed combat readiness to political correctness long ago when it integrated women into units where service personnel live in close proximity, e.g., ships, subs. But the buck doesn't stop at the Pentagon - we have the Generals & Admirals that Congress and the President approves.
