The federal district court in Tacoma, Wash., held that "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy was not subject to judicial review, and the Air Force didn't have to prove anything other than that she was a homosexual.

But the Ninth Circuit, citing the Supreme Court's 2003 Lawrence v. Texas decision...

This does it. I'm 100% convinced now - the 9th Circus reaches its decisions by reading chicken entrails.

This is Congress' LAW, not the military's policy.

Effin' moron reporters.

From the statement of facts in the decision "While serving in the Air Force, Major Witt never told any member of the military that she was homosexual

I can almost guarantee that her sexuality affected the structure of her command.

“an 18-year Air Force nurse”

At 18, I really doubt she was a nurse.
