A national defense analyst and Pentagon advisor says a recent report concerning the alarming rate of male-on-male sexual assaults in the military should create a roadblock to President Obama's efforts to repeal the 1993 law banning homosexuals from military service.
An annual report from the Department of Defense reveals that over the past year, reports of sexual assaults in the military have increased by 11 percent, including a 16-percent spike in reported incidents in combat areas, principally in Iraq and Afghanistan. While 87 percent of the reported assaults were male-on-female, seven percent were male-on-male.
Lt. Col. Bob Maginnis (USA-Ret.) was part of the military working group that helped craft the 1993 law known as Section 654, Title 10. The law states that homosexuality is incompatible with military service. Maginnis considers the seven-percent figure in male-on-male sexual assaults alarming.
"You've got to come to the conclusion that in the military, where we have a ban for that type of service and we're having a fairly significant incidence of assault that's associated with that type of activity, then you actually may have a worse problem than you think," he suggests.
"Seven percent is not something to dismiss lightly. If you're going to have that much homosexual assault, that's just the tip of the iceberg."
The retired Army officer says the increase of incidents of male-on-female sexual assaults is also very alarming and must be dealt with, especially in a time of war.

Liberals don’t believe in human nature, or that nature defines human sexuality.
If you cant take out a homosexual, maybe you shouldnt be in the military
What isn’t being said is that, for the most part these assaults are ccomminted on gays by gays.
Maybe I’m just thinking about the way we handle things down on the farm.
Never expect a liberal to look at the consequences of their ideas and say “oops, we were wrong”.
It’ll never happen.
Ever seen a prison documentary?
Once crawled into an old sub that was part of a museum exhibit. I can’t imagine my having to love for months with a bunch of guys in that space. REALLY can’t imagine living in such an environment without “rules”. Lord almighty!
They can allow gays in the millitary, but they should require them to take “saltpeter” pills daily and have twice a year STD tests.
While you’re at it, ban women from the military. Seriously.
I taught in the public schools. Superintendents move from failure to failure, getting every high salaries because failure is defined as “success.”
Maybe. It’s been years.
We'll have male on female, male on male, female on female, female on male, shemale on hemale, hemale on womyn.....yuck, this is beginning to sound like a Gilbert and Sullivan libretto !
Exactly - my assumption is that the incidents referred to in this report involve officers assaulting subordinates.
They must have sprayed that stuff all over Afghanistan.
It’s funny, since they are all humanists. I would think they would all be big on biology as the source of all human behavior.
I don't see how they are open to blackmail if everyone already know they are queer.
What are the other 6%? Female-on-female?
If rapes are generally underreported because the victim doesn't want to have to deal with the publicity, that could apply especially to heterosexual victims of homosexual assaults...so the figures may be low.
* rim shot *
Oops, maybe that wasn't the right way to put that.
