Rep. Ellen Tauscher on 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell'
Think Progress did an interview with Rep. Ellen Tauscher today following her announcement that she is re-introducing legislation to end the military's failed "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.
Said Tauscher: "I think that there’s, a lot has happened since 1993 and I think that even though the atmospherics look the same, a brand new president, you know, at a time when the Republicans are critical of whatever he’s doing, I think that what our job is is to inform people about the current state of affairs. And that is that 75 percent of the American people believe that this is the wrong policy."
Yesterday I posted a preview of Nathaniel Frank's new book which promises insight into the flawed thinking and the perpetuation of the military's failed policy.
