Tags: Don't Ask Don't Tell, James Joyner, Outside the Beltway blog, ridding ourselves

"Aside from seizing the opportunity to end a form of discrimination that will be looked upon with embarrassment in the not too distant future and complying with the wishes of the commander-in-chief, the fact of the matter is that wartime is when we can least afford to devote time and command attention to ridding ourselves of warriors whose only fault is being born with the wrong sexual orientation."

-- James Joyner, in an Outside the Beltway article called, "3 of 4 Service Chiefs Oppose DADT Repeal." I love how the author argues on behalf of equal human rights while using such militaristic language.
