WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. Army leaders have begun to study the prospect of sending women soldiers to the service's prestigious Ranger school - another step in the effort to broaden opportunities for women in the military.
Gen. Raymond Odierno, Army chief of staff, says he's asked senior commanders to provide him with recommendations and a plan this summer.

Dumbest idea yet!
Dumbest idea would be to send to fags there.
Lax requirements there, too?
Don’t be in a hurry to create another Kara Hultgreen.
Rangerettes! Don’t think so.
I would be fine with that, provided women recruits were held to the EXACT SAME standards as the men, and the standards were not lowered to get some acceptable number of women through.
“Gen. Raymond Odierno, Army chief of staff, says he’s asked senior commanders to provide him with recommendations and a plan this summer.”
Gee, recommendations and a plan...sounds like they’re not trying to determine WHETHER women ought to be allowed to go, but HOW they’re going to modify the program so women can artificially pass.
Sounds, in fact, a lot like the DADT repeal “survey” we had to take a couple of years ago...
See my #10 - great minds, my FRiend!
Who was that woman and what happened?
Already been done.
Bank on that. This is a done deal and they are just working out the details. Does anyone - ANYONE - believe they will recommend against this?
Oh, and by the way, anybody else see how this dovetails with Obama’s campaign theme of the war on women? Do you think Obama just might be setting up Conservatives to oppose this? Naah...
Fully expect that if this comes to pass. Several new candidates will fall victim to ‘accidents’ during training. Regardless of which DACOWITS committee member is shepherding them.
Which is what training is for.
Better there than on the battlefield.
An incompetant BITCH who crashed her F-14 into USS Abraham Linciln (CVN-72) and killed herself and her RIO and “crashed” the careers of some FINE Naval Officers/Aviators(Blowback from Tailhook ‘91).

I’ve got a buddy who is a long time instructor at the local police academy. He has always been in charge of administering the the fitness tests to potential recruits. We were discussing the fitness tests applicants have to go through (ie. x amount of push-up in 60 seconds, etc, etc) and I was surprised to find that recruits aren’t asked to do any pull ups. He said it used to be a requirement that one be able to do at least 5 pull ups but they drooped pull ups from the test altogether because in two years there had never been a female applicant who could do a single pull up.
Fortunately, no one in that police force will ever be required by law to protect a citizen of the jurisdiction, no harm, right?
