Priorities for the Pentagon

Tuesday, November 24, 2009

Regarding the Nov. 20 news story "In Fort Hood aftermath, Pentagon opens two reviews":

Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates, like virtually all leaders in the U.S. government, has rightly vowed to do "everything in our power" to prevent another Fort Hood-type incident.

Here's something in our power: Take the scarce resources now being wasted on drumming out of the military competent, patriotic Americans who happen to be gay and instead focus them on people posing actual threats.
