The letter that many Milbloggers signed on to today and we posted below has hit the internet and it’s been immediately characterized by the illiterate press as a call from Milbloggers to end Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. Although some of the signatories may hold that opinion, that’s not what the letter says.
It urges Congress to wait on repealing the law until the service chiefs finish their study of the impact changing the law will have on the force. It’s right there in the letter in the third paragraph, for Pete’s sake.
We ask Congress to withhold action until this is finished, but no longer. We urge Congress to listen to the service chiefs and act in accordance with the recommendations of that study.
