Judge Shuts Down Enforcement of 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell'

Woo-hoo! A woman -- U.S. District Judge Virginia Phillips -- has issued an injunction ending enforcement of the barbaric and unconstitutional Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy. The judge ordered the Defense Department "immediately to 'suspend and discontinue any investigation, or discharge, separation, or other proceeding' related to the policy."

"DADT is no longer the law of the land," said Judge Virginia Phillips. The ball is in the Obama Admin court.

The Obama DOJ can appeal and defend the odious policy of overt discrimination. Or President Obama can do the right thing and thank Judge Virginia Phillips for doing what he should have done.

SAN DIEGO (AP) — A federal judge issued a worldwide injunction Tuesday stopping enforcement of the "don't ask, don't tell" policy, ending the military's 17-year-old ban on openly gay troops.
