Now that DADT is ended officially the judges will get into this big time and quotas in all military categories will soon be required and the military will be tied up in discrimination and harassment litigation and legislation for a long long time. One would think that we could count on an incoming Republican and conservative president and Senate to reverse this nonsense but Republicans will not reverse or repeal anything at all of consequence. Elected Republicans and conservatives can be big on holding the line but that line is the line drawn by whatever the Left and Democrats have managed to attain.

It won't be overturned unless it can be documented that it is affecting operational effectiveness and the recruitment and retention of personnel.
DADT was a mistake. It just provided the foundation for what has just occurred. Once you allowed gays to be in the military covertly, it was just a matter of time before it would be allowed overtly. Next comes the rights and benefits of gay unions/marriage to match those now provided to married couples--a man and a woman.
