What do you fear more? Ignorance of Arabic or Teh Gay?
A decorated sergeant and Arabic language specialist was dismissed from the U.S. Army under the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, though he says he never told his superiors he was gay and his accuser was never identified.
Bleu Copas, 30, told The Associated Press he is gay, but said he was "outed" by a stream of anonymous e-mails to his superiors in the 82nd Airborne Division at Fort Bragg, N.C.
But the GAO also noted that nearly 800 dismissed gay or lesbian service members had critical abilities, including 300 with important language skills. Fifty-five were proficient in Arabic, including Copas, a graduate of the Defense Language Institute in California.
You'd think that we'd want everyone willing to serve...
But, n-o-o-o-o-o! Republicans would rather stay ignorant and put us all at risk than let teh gay serve their country proudly.
Tell me again which party is stronger on national security?
