the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy established during Bill Clinton’s term in office in 1993 that prohibited homosexuals from serving in the armed forces.
Horse manure. In no way, shape, or form, did DADT prevent homosexuals from serving in the military — it permitted them to serve as long as they weren't open about it (Don't tell).

The only prohibition was that the services were no longer allowed to raise questions about a servicemember's sexual orientation (Don't ask).
