Well if he says it doesn't happen when there are documented cases that it does he either isn't as informed as he thinks he is, or he's just a doddering old fool. I go with the latter.

Cajun247: Before 1950, If any two people in the military were caught 'Being Gay' they were shipped to Leavenworth, It was not tolerated.

I'm not saying that there weren't gays in the military before then, They just kept it hidden, Otherwise they faced the consequences.

If you think that's not possible, I can tell you of stories where women joined the armed forces, As men, And fought on the front lines before WWII.

They didn't care about orientation, they were concerned about performance. If you were a good marksman then they NEEDED you!

No, it was more like they didn't care if they were in a fox hole and getting shelled. That and if you were straight and happen to share that foxhole.

@cajun:

There's a reason for that.

People didn't care if gays were shot in the back before then.

Why? We had a "Don't Ask Don't Care" policy that's why.

auburnjunky we never had anything banning gays from serving in the military before the 1950s.

It's like a black person claiming racism at a KKK meeting.

OF COURSE gays will be hazed, treated unfairly, and maybe even killed in a military setting. ESPECIALLY in war. It's a testosterone fueled, high energy, push your body and mind to the limit occupation. It is filled with good people, but it is also filled with stupid, redneck, homophobes.

If some gay guy went into a battle with a rainbow patch on his arm (exaggeration) he would probably be the victim of friendly fire.

DADT was put into place to PROTECT people with alternative sexual lifestyles. Why should they want to repeal something the HELPS them survive in their chosen profession?

Also, let's not make this liberal, or conservative. CLINTON created DADT, and there were some democrats that voted against repeal the other day, because it was a piggyback legislation on a bill to raise military funding so republicans would vote for it. It's bad backdoor politics, and it didn't work!

Senator McCain, can you repeat what you just said.
"Sure...it's not the policy, it's not the policy, it's not the policy.........."

A majority of the people posting here have no idea what they are talking about.. Try to do some research on the actual Policy of DADT and see how the military handles gays or people they believe to be gay. Taking the word of a gay ex service member is hardly proof.

stupid senile old man...

obviously...there is a documented case of the military doing what the reporters are saying...they are literally saying "that IS the case, the military did exactly that"

they weren't arguing what the policy was...they could have just as easily said according to his logic "you can put a policy against raping in the military too...but that still happens..."

I think DADT should be in effect for ALL service members. Your sexual preference should never come in to play while you are serving in the military. You are not there to profess your love of a certain sex. Just follow orders and do your job and things should be fine. Keep your sexual preference where it belongs in your bedroom regardless of what the preference is.

I did not vote for the man but I would love to see him get all ex war hero on their ass and start back handing those little bitch ass reporters. I love the reporters that claim to know more about the military and their practices then the people who do actually know. It's like pissing in a wind storm, your just gonna make your self look like an idiot. Continuously asking the same question over and over again while interrupting the person asking the question has got to be the lowest form of journalism.

MrsPoods: what do you base that on? The repeal of DADT will set things back the way they were. The passage of some NEW policy or law would do what you suggest.

jtrebowski: McCain gave a direct answer, It just wasn't one the reporter liked.

@Crakrjak: It's also a technique to try to illicit a direct answer from someone who is obviously trying to avoid doing so.

First of all McCain is a stupid drating moron.

Secondly,DADT did not, and will not get repealed. The liberals couldn't even get their own people to vote it out, so let it go.

Now no gays have to be killed by redneck homophobes in the line of duty, because nobody will know they are gay.

@ nettech98: Um, no. If DADT is repealed, a person will have the choice of revealing their sexuality without the consequence of discharge. I usually don't respond to such ignorance, but you sir are an idiot.

While repealDADT is the poster child in this debate, the ultimate goal is to afford homosexuals the same rights enjoyed by heterosexuals. In this instance, those rights involve military service specifically.
