Well … where to begin.  At last count, I have 600 email messages about DADT in my box and reading through them is dizzying. 

The Pentagon study endorsed the repeal of DADT, finding that 70 of enlisted mend women essentially see no negative impact.  70 percent.  The Pentagon recognizes that repeal decisions from the courts are inevitable and a legislative repeal is the best way to maintain control over the situation. 

OK.  Seems pretty straightforward. 

Nope.  Repeal got all caught up in the ensuing debate over tax repeal and did not pass. DADT was part of the defense reauthorization bill which as a spending bill was part of the larger debate on finances.  Some analyze the political bungling. Stand alone repeal bills have now been introduced.

So now we wait. 

BTW, West Virginia's Senator Manchin was the only D to abandon ship b/c he still thinks there needs to be more time to explore implementation.  Oh, and he needs to talk to West Virginians.  Manchin is just like the Western PA Republicans in Democrats clothing.  Only he has pretty hair.  Beware.
