In The NY Times this morning, a letter writer contemplates the difficult decision regarding Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.
- One possibility would be to form a commission that could select a committee that could study the situation and report back to the commission every three months. After five years, the committee could publish its findings, and Congress could debate how to formulate a policy acceptable to Max Baucus, Ben Nelson and Olympia J. Snowe.
- The other possibility would be to ban discrimination based on sexual orientation.
That’s sure a tough one.
I bet we could get to the second possibility pretty quickly by just asking the folks currently in the military. A lot of them can be found in Afghanisan where it is the 118th day of the ninth year of the War there.
