DADT is dead!

Long live the… nevermind.

Critics of repeal within the Pentagon had long argued it was too risky to pursue the change at a time when the military was stretched by the wars in Iraq in Afghanistan.

But a Pentagon study unveiled last year predicted that scrapping the policy would have little impact, and repeal won support from Mullen, chairman of the U.S. military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff, and then-Defense Secretary Robert Gates.

I often find it amusing that the loudest people speaking on behalf of the military aren’t the people in charge of the military.
