Human rights now, not later.

President Obama made a committment  to the Human Rights Campaign to end the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy. The policy disallows anyone who…

“demonstrates a propensity or intent to engage in homosexual acts” from serving in the armed forces of the United States, because “it would create an unacceptable risk to the high standards of morale, good order and discipline, and unit cohesion that are the essence of military capability.”

This is a matter of human rights. It seems pretty simple, Mr. President. Just sign an executive order to overturn this policy. It is not a hard decision.
