The Senate approved Eric Fanning to lead the Army on Tuesday, giving the military branch its first openly gay secretary.
The Senate confirmed Fanning by unanimous consent after his nomination had been held in limbo for months because of a fight over the Guantánamo Bay detention center.
Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kansas) said Tuesday that he had dropped his hold on Fanning's nomination because the "clock has run out" for the president to move Guantánamo Bay detainees into the United States.
The Pentagon previously sent teams to Kansas to examine potential alternatives for housing Guantánamo Bay detainees.

Again more evidence we need the purge of our rino vichy republican uniparty esfablishment leadership and their coward enablers.
Now barry can finally start moving his compatriots from Guantanamo to Idaho.
Get him out Trump.
Leading with behind.....like Odungo
As long as our authorities have the proper butt sex qualifications, nothing else really matters.
The Senate Armed Services Committee, led by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), approved Fanning’s nomination in March, and Roberts blocked McCain from bringing up Fanning’s nomination last month.
Wonder how he’ll destroy the military. I assume he’ll mandate base churches “marry” homosexuals. I heard the military’s fighting allowing trannies in. I assume he’ll override their belief.
G.I. = Gay Issue
Obama is the most successful U S president — his intention was to destroy the nation, and he did it without an objection from the other two “branches of Government”. He still has enough time to drive more nails into the nation’s coffin before he leaves ( if he ever will).
What a nightmare it has been.
Before long, they’ll have gays up the wazoo. Of course that’s the way Obama wants it.
Who the hell wants to fight and die for this scum?
We still need to know if he likes to “issue orders” or he prefers to “receive orders.”
The Regulator Movement was founded in opposition to Governor Fanning of North Carolina. His corruption is really the original impetus for Revolution in America against the English Crown.
Is this SOB related? And just carrying on the family work?
This scumbag excuse for a human being will also have a lot less Secret Service protection when he leaves the White House which means his past may become a huge liability...
Yet another task for Trump on Day One, to boot this clown from his job, along with Carter, Mabus and the entire JCS.
Carter, Mabus-—and now this.
Valerie Jarrett’s military.
They’re only 1.6% of the population. Maybe he’ll mandate homosexual encounters.
The US Army!
Be the best you can be!/S
Learn how to blow for promotions! /S
This is the end of the all volunteer military.
Soon we will be back to the draft, women included.
And such things will eventually be part of all military performance reports.
