WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama has formally repealed the ban on gays serving openly in the military.
Administration officials say Obama on Friday signed a certification ending the 17-year-old "don't ask don't tell" policy.

Waited for the Friday afternoon News dump I see. Wonder why they didn’t do this on a Tuesday morning in a Rose Garden ceremony. Isn’t he proud that he did this?
The left has finally gotten their wish. The destruction of our Military.

Being the CIC, would that make him part of the military?
Although there really isn’t a need, now we can ask him....straight or laced...
Does anyone with two brain cells have any doubt that Zero is homosexual?
Hmmm you’d think he would have done that? I wonder why not?
And then repeal every executive order issued by former President Obama.
Counting cadence now?
Swish, swish, swish, swish.
This is going to be bad, just imagine the Pentagon under a “glitter” attack.
PERFECT timing by Obama:
LEAKED: U.S. defense officials deliberately skewed survey results to sway ‘Don’t Ask’ repeal

According to an explosive document, investigators from the U.S. militarys top investigative office found evidence that a Pentagon survey pivotal to the [DADT] repeal was engineered months prior to its release, and was deliberately skewed in later media leaks, with the intention of swaying Congress towards repeal despite opposition from combat troops.
Wasn’t one of Zeros many promises to not touch the subject?
Yup, another Zero promise ‘kept or saved’.
> Isnt he proud that he did this?
I’m sure he is.
It’s hard to believe that recruiting has gotten so bad that we now have to recruit sexual deviants to fill our military ranks. Pretty sad.
Got nothing better to do, Timmy?.....
Politicians supporting repeal of DADT relied for cover on the DOD deceptive proclamation that 70% of service members see positive or no effect for repealing DADT. The poll was conducted after Congressional Representatives had voted for repeal of DADT. Therefore, only 29% responded by completing half or more of the questions, under the compelling logic that nobody really cared. DOD contacted equal numbers of reserve and active troops and spouses, but only 20% to 30% of those whose family members military specialty could place them in harms way. Also, nearly one third had never deployed. Supposedly all these responses provided valid information, even though people in base housing, civilian neighborhoods, and CONUS bureaucracies never experience firefights and IEDs.
The entire military exists to serve Marine and Army combat infantrymen. DOD accomplishes nothing of lasting significance until infantrymen walk the ground formerly held by an enemy, and well over half of those trigger-pullers opposed repeal. Only they understand the unimaginable totalitarian leadership and obedience demanded by their chaotic and brittle environments.
Military service deals with the issues of race and sex amid the consequent extraordinary restrictions of Constitutional freedoms unknown to the civilian world. Disinformation must therefore achieve equivalency for rejection of homosexual behavior with those discriminatory issues. That objective in turn relies for vindication on the 1973 American Psychiatric Association (APA) decision to remove homosexuality as a mental disorder from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual.
Removal followed two years Newsweek described as ongoing disruptive, chaotic attacks on psychiatrists and physiologists. Yet throughout this campaign, no academic papers arose at conferences refuting any previous research. Eventually sufficient under-votes and abstentions enabled a third of APAs 17,000 plus membership to approve removal.
Next activists established a committee targeting leading researchers such as Dr. David Reuben, and Masters and Johnson to ensure perpetual sanctity for APA actions. No research papers would again confirm initial therapy success rates of 30% to 60 %, substantiating 7 of 10 homosexuals could eventually walk away from the lifestyle. Persistent activism over 37 years enabled ubiquitous infiltration of academia ensuring pre-ordained theses, approved research designs, suitable human data points, and enchanting statistical enhancements. The result has been social alchemy.
Psychology and psychiatry abandoned scientific rigor for popular acclaim. With homosexual studies freed from objective analysis, DADT repeal advocates relied upon base antidotal, emotional politics to dominate discrimination concerns. Advocates were free to avoid the realities of military operations characterized by sacrificial, primitive and intimate relations. Psychology and psychiatry were unwilling to demand a rigorous discussion of whether any mental disorders could be tolerated within the exceptional human structures needed to defeat enemies.
The Pentagon study never addressed the area of religious freedom, placing this form of discrimination for the first time among those restricted Constitutional guarantees inherent in military service. Previously the religious faith exception provided a critical foundation for surviving the grinding stresses and shattering experiences of warfare.
Basic theology explains why Jewish, Christian, and Muslim believers find their religious freedom evaporating with repeal. Followers of desert religions, who send their pastors into the chaplaincy and believers into military service, consider homosexual behavior unacceptable. It resides among the myriad sins entrapping fallen humanity.
For tens of millions People of the Book foundational Old Testament scholarship concludes homosexual relationships separate believers from God. When speaking of the character, identity, and purpose of God, He is spoken of as masculine, and all humans become feminine in relation to Him. Besides creating all things, God created heterosexual marriage as the earthy manifestation of the absolute unity and love He seeks with each person. Classical Semitic theology emphasizes identifying with God in spiritual intimacy, meaning any subsequent reasoning must proceed from that basic understanding.
Therefore after repeal, when believers reject homosexuality in counseling rolls and normal life activities, these people reside outside Constitutional boundaries guaranteeing religious freedom. They see themselves becoming guilty of at least cultural prejudice, if not criminality.
This debate veered into humanist social alchemy as a means to fabricate attachments to our Constitution and to dissemble concerning military operations. The primary issues of Constitutional speech and religious freedoms, and of whether any mental disorders can be tolerated within the exceptional human structures needed to defeat enemies were not addressed.
Now is the time for all gays serving in the military to finally come out of the closet!
After all, Obama has freed you to do so... right???
Give no mind to the officers on the sideline taking down names... it’s simply to encourage others to do the same.
After all, polls indicate that everyone in the military supports this historic change... so what could possibly go wrong?
Oh... just don’t forget to vote for your buddy in 2012.
Does anyone with two brain cells have any doubt that Zero is homosexual?
it doesn’t matter really, after all he’s done to destroy our country, but i agree he’s at least “bi”.
He’s supposedly appealing to women, went to Harvard, etc., yet no woman has EVER said she dated him, went to the H.S. prom with him, etc.
Larry Sinclair may be strange, but no one has caught him in any clear lies, (unlike Obama lying about his Mother not having health insurance).
His gay Pakistani roommate in California, moved near Columbia, even though he didn’t go there.
certainly there isn’t any proof. but, if i had to bet...
And don’t forget Frank Marshall Davis. Zero’s mother and grandparents deserve a lot of blame for turning him over to a Marxist pedophile.
You’re right, of course, that it’s his actions that really matter, irrespective of the psychological murk beneath.
