    How can anyone imagine that any of the Chiefs, including Mullen, would commit career suicide by going against Gates whom they report to…any more than imagining that any dissent any of them have already expressed was done without his permission?

    The difference between Clinton and Obama is that Clinton came into office wanting to end the ban and eventually caved to the homophobic military, while Obama came into office ALREADY having caved to them.

    He has surrendered TOTAL control of what happens to the ban to Gates. Despicable but undeniable.

    The military is about protecting the United States, not pleasing everyones problem about acceptance.

    Gays cans serve in the military, not openly. This is not grade-school.
