Happy anniversary of DADT!

Today is the one year anniversary of the death of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.

Somehow we’ve survived the end of military cohesiveness.  The army has endured the death of recruiting.   There was also the mass exodus of troops that we were assured would take place.

From the vantage point of the present, it is transparently clear that the death of DADT was really the biggest non-event ever.  All the uproar at the time was just a bunch of paranoid, unsupported homophobic bluster.  It is equally clear, but infinitely more embarrassing, that none of the “sky-is-falling, end-of-the-world” folks who fear mongered against DADT’s demise have had the integrity to say “Oops, our bad.”
