Obama To Fire Gay Arabic Linguist
So much for the campaign promise to put a stop to the insanely ignorant practice of firing desperately needed Arabic linguists from the military because they're gay. So much for Obama's promise to repeal Don't Ask, Don't Tell.
Obama is about to fire a West Point graduate who is also a desperately needed Arabic linguist. Dan Choi's crime? He came out on national television. The poor man must have thought he was living in a free country or something.
