Interesting segment. I have to say, I don’t like it when someone presents the big reason to repeal DADT as “we really need his/her skills”. That’s all sorts of not cool. As much as I appreciate people pointing out the silliness inherent in firing people who have skills you really do need, I also think that’s a secondary issue. Lesbians and gay men should be permitted to serve in the military because the stated reasons for their exclusion are prejudicial and/or disproven nonsense.
I love the defense that we need DADT because some soldiers won’t want to bunk in the same room as a gay serviceman. Our troops are much more professional than that. What a slap in the face to them.
Something to consider for the future: Once DADT is repealed, we’ll need to complete the circle by getting the dishonorable discharges based solely on DADT reclassified and full benefits of the discharged servicemembers restored.
