Top opponent of DADT repeal admits he was wrong

WASHINGTON -- The Marine Corps commandant who once said openly gay service members would be a dangerous "distraction" and was among the most outspoken opponents of repealing the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy said today he does not expect to lose troops over the change.

"I haven't had any indication yet at all, not at all," Gen. James Amos told reporters when asked if he expected the mass exodus of troops that Sen. John McCain and other critics predicted if the ban was lifted.

Amos was visiting troops in Afghanistan's Helmand Province when President Barack Obama signed the repeal in late December. He said he addressed some 12,000 Marines about the change and "everyone said, 'Sir, we got it. We're going to do this thing.'"

The about-face by the Marines' top general came before the ink was dried on the law and was underlined in a video Amos taped with the Corps' Sgt. Maj. Carlton W. Kent last month. In it, he said the service "will step out smartly to faithfully implement this new law. It's important that we value the diversity of background, culture and skills that all Marines bring to the service of our nation."

This is silly, the implementation of this new policy has hardly started anywhere..the marines will be the last.

Nearly every Homosexual in the military joined under the DADT climate, hardly the lisping types who will be encouraged to join and act "openly" in dress and manner.

These 'acts' you are so afraid of are already proscribed for homosexuals and heterosexuals alike under 'fraternization' rules! And having a lisp has nothing to do with sexual orientation! Talk about stereotypes and prejudice!!

Here let me correct you (again).

I am not "afraid" of Homosexual "acts"...... and evidently they aren't either.
