    Not to downplay Turing's brilliance and achievements, but his situation doesn't directly correlate with DADT. He was not in the military, he was British, and homosexuality was illegal in his country at the time.

    Or maybe I'm misunderstanding your point here. Can you elaborate on why you think Turing is an example of why the government should give homosexuals full support?

    because homos are brilliant (with a few obvious exceptions) . . .

    and well duh, didn't Turing play a significant role in defeating the Nazis? . . .

    . . . that alone should merit a fair hearing, a fair assessment of his importance to the war effort, and a government citation of the highest order . . .

    . . .and by the way, gay people, even civilians, still live in a DADT world . . . ask yourself, can a gay person be Commander in Chief currently? the answer is no . .
