Morality and the Military
from the McClatchy-Tribune News Service (MCT)
In this article, Marine General Peter Pace created an apparent ruckus, being the top general in the pentagon, when he gave his opinion about lifting the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy. He stated that to do so would condone "immoral behavior", and that he in no way would support a policy that is immoral. The former general who had held Pace's office before him said that the time to lift the ban may finally be upon us, but others clearly see differently. In the article, there are prices shown that the military has been forced to pay to uphold the policy. The article states how pointless and nonsensical it seems to spend so much money during wartime, when precious resources are needed for all manner of reasons, for such a trivial reason.
