dr martens shoe laces Obama speaks out about military’s
Posted by Adam Thiele emailNBC The frustration and fight over the military don ask don tell policy seems to be intensifying after a California judge ruled against it this week.But for the White House, which has long pushed for a change, that decision does not go far enough.Late Thursday President Obama made it clear, he plans to do away with the military don ask don tell policy.President Obama says, “This policy is not a question of when it will end, it will end on my watch.”But the president apparently doesn think a ruling from a judge in California this week, ordering the military to “immediately stop enforcing the ban worldwide.” is the answer.White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs says, “The President has been active in encouraging and imploring Congress to do the right thing and end a harmful, discriminatory, unjust law.”The justice department is working on an appeal of that California ruling, a frustrating move for many gay service members.This F 16 pilot who has served in both Iraq and Afghanistan was forced to hide his identity while talking with MSNBC Rachel maddow Wednesday night.The pilot says, “I seen us come so close with Don Ask Don Tell with the repeal is kinda like the carrot stick right there in front of you, but you just can reach it.”The military is currently reviewing how to integrate openly gay troops into the armed services. Key questions include living arrangements, and whether the government will be required to provide benefits for same sex partners of service members.That study should be finished by December first.Commanders say the battle over “don ask. don tell” frankly doesn matter.Maj. Gen. John Campbell of the US Army says, “They engaged in the fight, they engaged with working with people every single day. They not worried about the politics of what going on in the United States, they not worried about the politics of don ask, don tell.”The Department of Defense sent an e mail out today to all the judge advocates in the field telling them to abide by the terms of the district court ruling.While the Pentagon continues to study the ruling and decide whether to appeal and seek a stay.Heavy snow causes concerns for some driversHeavy snow causes concerns for some driversUpdated: Sunday, March 11 2018 11:41 PM EDT2018 03 12 03:41:17 GMTWFIEHeavy snows across the tristate made roads slick Sunday night.
