Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (2)

26 Sep

Two years ago, a federal appeals court ruled that the military can’t discharge personnel under Don’t Ask Don’t Tell unless they can prove it furthers military goals. This week, Judge Ronald Leighton ruled that the Air Force did not prove that in the case of Major Margaret Witt, who was discharged under the policy, and ordered her reinstated.

I would claim that firing Witt actually hurt the military’s goals. She is a highly decorated flight nurse who rose to the rank of Major. That doesn’t happen if she’s not a good airman who’s an asset to her unit.

Congratulations, Major.
