Is the military's counterproductive policy on gays in the military worth re-examination. U.S. Rep. Vic Snyder seems to think so and he's now in a position to have something to say about it.
The lead from an item on Mara Leveritt's blog:
Rep. Vic Snyder (D-Ark.), the new chairman of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Military Personnel, said today he believes the military’s policy of “don’t ask, don’t tell” may warrant re-examination.
Though addressing the policy was not a priority, he said, “My own feeling is that evidence is accumulating that it is not working as people thought it was going to work, and when we have people like Gen. [John] Shalikashvili raising the issue, it certainly opens the question to broader discussion.”
