Not So Fast: Army Secretary Tells Gays That They Can Come Out of Closet and Then Orders Them Back In

It will be interesting if any gay soldiers came out of the closet after Army Secretary John McHugh told soldiers that the ‘don’t ask, don’t tell” policy was suspended. Yesterday, he ordered them back into the closet saying he “misspoke” and that the policy would still be enforced. That would make for a fascinating entrapment case for any soldiers that spoke out upon McHugh’s earlier assurance.

McHugh stated Thursday that “]u]Until Congress repeals ‘don’t ask, don’t tell,’ it remains the law of the land and the Department of the Army and I will fulfill our obligation to uphold it.” Oops.

  1. Wait, there are gays currently serving in the military and people in the military know about it? And the military still functions? No loss of moral, or loss of unit cohesion, or any of those dire predictions that we hear?

    Hmmmmmmm
