|Congressman wants to write a little|
tiny delay into repeal of DADT
Two Congressmen, House Armed Services Committee chairman Rep. Bud McKeon (R-Calif.) and Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) are attempting to delay the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell. Despite their attempts, according to the Advocate, Pentagon officials said that the repeal WILL HAPPEN on September 20, 2011:
|Pentagon official says NO DELAY.|
NO DELAY. Its the Law.
"The repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell will occur, in accordance with the law and after a rigorous certification process, on September 20," the Pentagon spokesman said. "Senior Department of Defense officials have advised Congress of changes to regulations and policies associated with repeal. We take that obligation seriously."
I am developing an entirely NEW RESPECT for the military. All along, the military officials have graciously and faithfully obeyed the law when it comes to the repeal of DADT. When the courts said it was illegal, the military immediately stopped enforcing it. And now they WILL NOT delay the repeal because it is the law of the land to end DADT. My hat is off in respect to that attitude.
