Reason Writers Around Town: Shikha Dalmia on Obama's Pusillanimity on Don't Ask Don't Tell


In her latest Forbes column, "Obama's Betrayal on Don't Ask Don't Tell," Shikha Dalmia shows how President Obama is colluding with conservatives to screw over gays in the military. (Evidently, screwing over kids in the D.C. voucher program wasn't enough.)

As Dalmia writes, there is solid evidence from both the U.S. and abroad that no one goes through boot camp to get a date. "So the question is, will President Barack Obama lead the way to its repeal—as he promised he would during his campaign—or back-pedal to political safety, as he seems to be doing?"

Whole thing here.
