Pelosi: Obama Should Stop Discharges

In a message released March 30, 2010, Nancy Pelosi has made a pretty bold and progressive statement regarding Don't Ask, Don't Tell. It's brief and very to the point.

The Majority Leader and Speaker of the House had this to say, “We all look forward to the report on the review of the ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy by the Defense Department. In the meantime, the Administration should immediately place a moratorium on dismissals under this policy until the review has been completed and Congress has acted.”

It sounds redundant because many of us have been saying this for sometime now. The president has the power to stop all discharges until this matter is reviewed and an actual decision is made. And as much as I love our President, this is the one issue that has me wavering on my support for him.

Mr. President, sign the order. Stop the discharges. Do the right thing for our gay and lesbian solders.
