‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ Repeal Fails in the Senate

December 9, 2010 § Leave a comment


Unfortunately, the fight to repeal the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy which bans gay troops from openly serving in the army, has failed to pass in the Senate at a 57-40 test vote, 3 votes short of the 60 needed to advance. Senate Republicans blocked the legislation which would repeal the out-dated policy placed on U.S troops back in 1993.

As someone who is not an American citizen, or even a resident of this country, I know it’s a difficult place for me to disclose my disgust on the matter. I am not a Political Science expert, nor am I knowledgeable on U.S military operation matters concerning how to best protect the troops. However, this is a violation on human rights, and that is what disgusts me. It’s a sad day when equality of ALL is banned.
