"...General Colin Powell, who help[ed] get us in this mess, says Congress should not be rushed.

Not be rushed? Excuse me, waiting 17 years for repeal of this policy is hardly rushing anything. Not be rushed? Over 14,000 honorable LGBT soldiers have been dismissed for wanting to serve their country as full Americans. What is Powell thinking?"

-- Longtime activist David Mixner in his blog post, "Who Is Commander-In-Chief?"
