The end of DADT?

Representative Patrick Murphy (D-Pa) is reportedly introducing a proposal that would repeal DADT while still allowing the military to continue its study of how to implement the repeal.

According to the report in the AJC, a recent Gallup poll found that 70% of Americans polled were in favor of the repeal. Between 1998 and 2008, more than 10,000 soldiers were discharged under DADT. And a bunch of them were Arabic interpreters.

Republicans plan to fight the compromise proposal. (Now, there's a huge surprise!)

I would love to write more and give you better sources, but hey, I'm in the middle of moving.So I'm outta here.
