Senate Republicans have killed the defense bill with the DADT repeal amendment. This effectively kills repealing DADT for the rest of the year. So valuable service members will continue to get kicked out for as much as a year or more. Enough of playing politics. When a survey of military members in the 1940's revealed that the majority of those serving did NOT want blacks serving with them, President Truman signed an order to integrate blacks anyway because he knew it was right and history would be on his side. President Obama must sign an order to prohibit enforcement of DADT until Congress can repeal it when it comes up again after the mid-term elections. This will make the Pentagon's silly surveys mute and prove to Congress it doesn't need to wait for some complicated process to stop this anti-gay policy. It will show the military continues to operate just fine the moment gay service members don't have to lie anymore under the President's directive.
