Skip to comments.White House, Congress reach deal on repeal of 'don't ask, don't tell' (We're doomed!)
Posted on 05/25/2010 3:43:39 AM PDT by tobyhill
Congressional Democrats reached an agreement Monday with the White House and possibly the Pentagon on a key legislative step toward repealing the "don't ask, don't tell" policy that bars openly gay soldiers from the military.
In a letter to President Obama obtained by CNN, three congressional sponsors of legislation to repeal the policy outlined the proposed agreement that would set contingencies based on completion of a military review of the matter already under way and subsequent final approval from the president and military leaders.
Specifically, the proposed agreement calls for repeal to become final only after completion of the military review expected by the end of 2010, followed by a review certification from Obama, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen.

Well America you voted for it; hope it makes you feel safe at night.
Republicans ought to insist on a repeal of the health care reform bill as a condition for repeal of DADT.
I dont know who will take over America first. The Mexicans, the Muslims, or the faggots.
Suffice to say the future doesnt look good for the straight anglo-saxon community. Where do we run?
No. How about they grow a spine and don't compromise? How many times do we have to get burned before the Great Obsolete Party wakes up and realizes they'll get back-stabbed again? Repealing 0Care should be a sperate issue entirely. In fact we shouldn't even have DADT. It should be "Don't Join Homo."
The Democrats and the STUPID people that voted for them, have succeeded in DESTROYING our once fine Military!!!
To be overturned via executive order January 21, 2013.
GOP needs to start running against everything dems do.
All of it.
Our country is in deep trouble. We are stuck with this POS who thinks he has absolute power.
Right now, the Feds can’t get a grip on the Gulf Oil Spill, the NORK’s have torpedoed a SK ship, Iran is nuking up, fiscal economic crisis is swamping Europe. Are we focused or working on any of these issues? Hell no. Our priorities are focused on getting gays in the military, raising taxes, and who will be at the Andrews AFB gym at 2pm today for the daily pickup basketball game.
And if its a mutual ball grab, everyone can laugh while watching them hump away. They can be sent on suicide missions.
This will work its self out among the ranks. They wont need another law from the senate after they allow gays to join.
Yeah. Wait till gay couples start moving into base housing. That’ll do wonders for recruiting and retention.
Hey, this is important stuff.
I feel so confident in the government knowing this is the stuff they have on the front burner /s
Anyone here know what a rack party is?
We need equal rights for those of us who are openly normal and don’t want to be around queers.
Many of them are just pleased as punch that they have.
Yes...the Democrat Party is the party of DEATH and GAYS.
I suspect our armed forces will be self-policing to deal with this issue.
This is another nail in our coffin.
I hope that someday there is a terrible vengeance placed on these quislings who would destroy our country. All those who support this in the Military (Gates and Mullen) may they rot in hell as well. Morally speaking, all those in support of this travesty are lower than Civil War Bushwhackers and Bandits.
It is an insidious effort to create a fait accompli.
This attempt has not been yet approved by Congress; and it should damn well not be approved. A vote is said to be scheduled for this week, maybe Thursday.
Pleasepleaseplease telephone your Congressional Rep. on this and tell them NOT to approve ANY change in the policy until the military study group completes its work and issues its findings.
Most Republicans hold that Don't Ask, Don't Tell has been workingand it has indeed. But the homosexual lobbies want OPEN homosexual-ism in the U. S. military.
This, for one thing, will destroy all our efforts to work with Islamic peoples in, yes, the war against terrorism.
Whe I was in the Army, it was called a "blanket party".
