    "The changes to Don't Ask, Don't Tell (DADT) announced last week by Defense Secretary Robert Gates are leading to some confusion about the law's current status. On Wednesday, the Secretary of the Army declared that dismissals on DADT charges were on hold. By Thursday, he was forced to recant his remarks."

    I think DADT would be thrown out in a hurry if every one of our troops "come out". What are they gonna do? Kick everyone out?

    It is just more talk, talk, and talk, no serious action on changing or even repealing DADT just endless political windbagging. What else is new.
