Defense Secretary Leon Panetta to certify that gays can serve openly in the armed services

“A question I have asked many for the last two years concerning our President. If his presidency is illegitimate then should he not be held accountable for military KIAs due to orders he has given. People want to downgrade the importance of his birth certificate and his legitimacy as President, but there are serious ramifications here if it is discovered he is not eligible to be President thus giving unlawful orders that result in the deaths of many military service members.”
AS well as every thing else he has done in his official capacity as POTUS, to include appointments, nominations, bills, laws, treaties, name it.
Don’t drop the soap.
It’s in his discretion to say that doing so would have a negative effect on retention and recruitment. But he won’t, because he’s a Progressive.
I wonder how the Taliban would react to being “engaged” by the 5th Gay Battalion?
well no one with any authority in our Government has said Obama is not eligible to be President. I happen to personally believe Obama is ineligible but who am I but just a FReeper? I am not aware of a single member of Congress making the case he is not eligible. So from a pragmatic standpoint your statement is meaningless. The solution is not to expect the Military to disobey legal orders but for us to seek impeachment and we all know that won't happen.
One day there may come a Belisarius, but by then, as it was in the past, it will be too late.
I’m glad I retired before it was mandatory.
Panetta is not a soldier. He can tell Obama to pound sand on any order he issues. Obama can fire him. That's about it. But Panetta is not bound by any order Obama issues.
If Panetta thought this was an order that would harm the military, he would be duty bound to tell Obama that he is not going to carry it out. Then Obama would have to fire him and appoint a new lackey to carry out his vile orders.
I hate this. But the teachers unions have been promoting this for 10 years. The teens today think it’s normal. I’m going to be an 80 year old grandma and I’m going to be looked at as a racist 80 year old grandma back in the 70’s. The only difference is, I’m not F’ing my same sex partner. Perversion is prevision.
“Hello, my name is Sue, and I’m a hetro”. Who cares?
“What ever happened to the defense authorization bill amendment Republicans added that required all armed forces division chiefs would have to sign off as well?”
They signed off on it about 2 weeks ago.
Which branch of the Armed Forces did you serve?
Four more years and the draft will be debated to be reinstated.
You’ll never wield a sword. Get real, Europe is all gay. You’re going to sit at your comfy desk and post comments on an internet site. “Conservatives” have a lot of bravado. Are you really going to fight this fight?
Thank you. Considering your screen name I trust you.
So is every branch leader going to confirm and sign off that the repeal will not harm the military. I thought two of the armed service branch chiefs were wary of this?
I can’t wait for the first headline “Gay PFC killed in a ‘friendly fire’ incident in Afghanistan.
Exactly right, the ranks will take care of their own. There will be a lot of accidents now. Lots of queers will be going home in plastic bags.
Apparently they all have already signed off. According to the AP:
“His decision, which was expected, comes two weeks after the chiefs of the military services told Panetta that ending the ban would not affect military readiness. Dismantling the ban fulfills a 2008 campaign promise by President Barack Obama, who helped usher the repeal through Congress and signed it into law late last December.”
Can a corpsman refuse to touch a gay soldiers blood?
