A nation in denial

Gates Warns Against Gambling on 'Don't Ask' Repeal

Delaying vote until after the lame-duck session could leave issue to be decided in the courts, Defense secretary says.
In opposing the repeal of DADT, Sen. McCain (who formerly supported repeal) cites polls of combat units.  If we're polling & listening to soldiers about who they personally prefer to serve with, let's also ask them if they personally prefer  to come home from Afghanistan & Iraq. We're arguing DADT, unemployment benefits &  taxes, but nobody wants to ask how we're paying for our wars.   Two-billion per week for Afghan, with zilch  evidence that it strengthens our national security, since  the Al-Qaeda terrorists long ago moved to Pakistan, Somalia & Yemen.

Can I get an "amen" to this post?
