What is the cost in waiting and delays? This. The conflict between the integrity required for a good officer and the lies required by DADT forced one of the best cadets to leave West Point. These are precisely the people we need leading the military as it ends two wars and recovers from the breaking point. Well, tries to recover. So, the delays mean the loss of more of the future of the Armed Forces. I understand the politics of the situation requires some caution, but, at this point, I wonder if there are any supporters of DADT who would ever vote for Democrats/Obama anyway. I guess the change will come shortly after November--after the next set of elections.
It will be late but perhaps not too late.
