(VIDEO) 9/20/11: U.S. MILITARY “DON’T ASK DON’T TELL” POLICY ENDS

The U.S. Military “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” policy ends today after of years of debate.  President Obama and other top  officials signed off on the repeal and sent it to Congress in July of this year, after strong opposition from multiple organizations. 

The original policy was enacted December 21, 1993 and prohibited military personnel from discriminating against or harassing closeted homosexual or bisexual service members or applicants, while barring openly gay, lesbian, or bisexual persons from military service.

While this is a relief to many it is still controversial and will continue to be a topic for debate.  But in the end, was this truly a good policy anyway?  Does it really matter what sexual orientation a person is who is fighting for our country?  This is certain to receive harsh debate for both sides so get your fire extinguishers ready!

What do you think?
