More Evidence that DADT Is Undermining US Military

This story about gays and lesbians at the US Military Academy just serves as more evidence that we need to hustle a bit faster to get rid of this obsolete restriction.
“Anyone you meet here,” the senior female cadet said, “you have to assess their personality very closely, and see if you can trust them.”
This is not only sad but destructive.  Creating an environment of fear and distrust among the future officers in the military is awful.  How will these officers work together down the road?

I'd love to see if a reporter could find a similar group of folks willing to talk to a journalist at the US Air Force Academy, given its status as an outpost of evangelical proselytizing.  Distrust must be incredibly high there.
