David Gregory on “Meet The Press” today asked Senator John McCain why Admiral Mullen’s statements isn’t enough to satisfy his 2006 statement that if military leaders say the policy should be changed, that’s what should happen.
Grandpa Munster replied: “As I said back then, we need to have a careful examination. And Admiral Mullen was, as quote, speaking personally. Just this week the commandant of the Marine Corps said that he did not want DADT repealed. There are many in the military who do not want to. We are going to go through, hopefully, a year-long study that will, hopefully, also, have the feelings of the men and women who are serving.”
Well McCain there were many in the military that didn’t want African Americans or women to serve in the armed forces but they eventually got over it. Equality is not a popularity contest.
At this poiut I even question why we would want to serve and defened a country who won’t recognize us as equals.
