ousting of gay language specialists
Submitted: 2002-12-06 16:34:54.000 (post #: 204)

I am surprised no one has yet said anything about the gay people who were training to be military language specialists and were ousted due to their sexual orientation/preference. The press has mostly focused on the issue of how this was a bad thing because they were all studying Arabic languages deemed critical to our "war on terrorism/bin Laden/Al-Quaeda/Iraq/etc." This seems like a moment to focus again on the need for the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy in the military, although I fear what might replace it.
