Kuhner Calls DADT Repeal "An Act Of National Suicide"

Blog ››› ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF

In a December 30 Washington Times editorial, Jeffrey Kuhner wrote that the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" is "an act of national suicide," claiming that it is "one of the most revolutionary and damaging acts ever done to a core American institution" and that it will "decimate the greatest fighting force on earth, undermining unit cohesion, morale and discipline - the lifeblood of a successful military."

From Kuhner's op-ed:

Moreover, Mr. Obama - again with GOP help - succeeded in getting "don't ask, don't tell" (DADT) repealed, enabling homosexuals to serve openly in the military. This is one of the most revolutionary and damaging acts ever done to a core American institution. It will decimate the greatest fighting force on earth, undermining unit cohesion, morale and discipline - the lifeblood of a successful military. It is an act of national suicide.
