The Congress has sole constitutional authority to make rules for the military, not the President/CIC or the courts.............

You are correct about the Congress having authority to regulate the military. In this instance, they, too, have sided with changing DADT. That gave the courts, in my non-lawyer opinion, the open door to walk through and say to the world that it should be done sooner rather than later. They were supported in that by the CINC’s comment that DADT is unconstitutional. That is my point. The court had an open door and they walked through it. Given the background, I can see how they’d logic their way to such a conclusion.
