House votes again to end ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’

I’ll say it again–I don’t oppose repeal of DADT. But Rep, Steny Hoyer (D-MD), is still a liar.: “‘It’s time to end a policy of official discrimination that has cost America the service of some 13,500 men and women who wore our uniform with honor,’ Hoyer said Wednesday. ‘It’s time to stop throwing away their service – their willingness to die for our country – because of who they are.'”

DADT represented an end to discrimination. In practice, it’s not equitable, and that’s reason enough to change it, but the change also has to be smart and comprehensive, or this will be a train wreck.
