After all the talk about getting rid of DADT by the Obama Administration, this week, federal attorneys from The Department of justice made another go at trying to gett the Log Cabin Republicans’ Don’t Ask Don’t Tell lawsuit thrown out of court…….again.
Remember: These lawyers aren’t acting without direction from the White House. The same White House that has stated publicly DADT is unconstitutional. And the same White House that could order DOJ to stand down.
Judge Virginia Phillips denied DOJ’s last attempt to have the case dismissed. So the DOJ has a new tactic: Demanding a summary judgment. And in doing so, language like this was part of its motion:
These rules are necessitated by, among other things, “[t]he worldwide deployment of United States military forces, the international responsibilities of the United States, and the potential for involvement of the armed forces in actual combat routinely [which] make it necessary for members of the armed forces involuntarily to accept living conditions and working conditions that are often spartan, primitive, and characterized by forced intimacy with little or no privacy.” Id. § 654(a)(12). Congress’s policy judgment culminated, as noted, in its finding that “[t]he presence in the armed forces of persons who demonstrate a propensity or intent to engage in homosexual acts would create an unacceptable risk to the high standards of morale, good order and discipline, and unit cohesion that are the essence of military capability.”
Attention DOJ. There are ALREADY Homo’s in the Shower, the mess hall, the bunks, and in the gym sauna.
It’s amazing that in this day and age of the internet and immidiate news that this administration can still think they can talk out of both sides of their mouths and nobody is going to notice.
