Obama's Foreign Policy is a Mess, period. Consider for a moment that the US Department of State actively supports Gays in the Foreign Service (Read the end of this).
Because there are so many Foreign Service Officers, and their partners now serving openly abroad, it may eventually become a policy issue with other countries. What would happen if France or one of the Islamic countries declared a sitting Ambassador or Political Officer persona nongrata and demanded their removal or recall for being GAY, or being the openly GAY State Department funded domestic partner? Does a country have the leverage to deny diplomatic credentials to Gay diplomats, or by extension their family members? Why wouldn't a country eject a diplomat for this reason, under any circumstance where there may be an existing disagreement? Would it serve the interests of militant Islamic leaders in a country to declare the USA a demonic or Satin loving country because of assignment of Gay diplomats and the open financial support for Gay partners.
Having served as an Equal Employment Officer/Advisor at two Embassies, and while this issue did not raise its ugly head, rumors are rampant within the US Department of State overseas and domestically about Gay complaints being sufficient to pressure Management Officers to providing unqualified "family members (gay domestic partners are official orders as family members) jobs.
Did you know that the US Department of State allows you to fill out a form and apply for all the same benefits for your same sex partner as are extended to other family members?
Obama does support GBLT, GLBT in writing for the US Department of State. Do a FOIA Request to see what comes out every June (Gay Pride Month), which is another celebrated Federal Holiday like Asian Pacific Islander, Black, Womens, etc. Months. Sec State Hillary R. Clinton has signed letters, memordums and other documents authorizing financial support for non-Married partners putting Gay Issues into writing/practice.
Did you know that your gay partner is entitled to same housing allowances, educational allowances, spouse employee preferences, and protections against alleged slights by using EEO and Inspector General to file complaints - Gays are already receiving Federally mandated funding via the US Department of State.
Where is the MSM to investigate these facts. June is Gay Appreciation Month, and all gays receive the same benefits as normal family members/spouses. Period. Obama does support this issue in writing - go the US Department of State and do the Freedom of Information Request or search it online.
Maybe it is time for heterosexual couple working for the US Department of State to apply for same sex partnership status for third parties to the marriage as a right too, thus challenging this practice at the State Department.
Does Free Republic Readers (or anyone in the entire Country) understand that Hillary's support for Gay Partners allows a Foreign Service Officer who is Gay in Rio de Janeiro to depart for Iraq or Afghanistan and his Brazilian boyfriend is allowed to reside in the same diplomatic quarters/residence as the now departed Foreign Service Officer/Diplomatic. This cost the US Department of State over $100,000 a year, and then the small matter of plane ticket to Thailand for the boyfriend to join the employee upon his rotation to his next assignment? Mutiply this one example a hunderd times, or more and you will see the financial implications - who authorizes this funding or diversion of funding from the authorized mission of the US Department of State?
An investigation needs to be launched into what is the funding authorization for this use or misuse of federal funds entrusted to a Federal agency, e.g., the State Dept.? Has the Congress or Senate approved funding for the State Departments (Hillary Clinton's) financial support of Gay partners?
Finally, the very fact that the US Department of State under Clinton has created the very basis of the program to rollout US Government Funding at all Federal Agencies by virture of three years of implementation now in effect at the US Department of State.
Where are voices of the Republican Congress critters and Senators, and Mitt Romeny himself on these facts which can be readily verified.
Hilda has her own broccoli patch
Only one way to rid State of Queers; move the Department to West Plains MO.
