Possible Agenda for CNN's Plant "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"?
WASHINGTON, Nov. 29 — Marking the 14th anniversary of legislation that allowed gay men and lesbians to serve in the military but only if they kept their orientation secret, 28 retired generals and admirals plan to release a letter on Friday urging Congress to repeal the law.Wow, what timing?...It sure is suspicious that on Wednesday night at the Republican Debate in St. Petersburg, FL, CNN went so far as to fly planted gay activist Ret. General Keith Kerr to participate both by video and in person to push an agenda.
Few issues have split the Democratic and Republican presidential candidates this year as clearly as whether to repeal “don’t ask, don’t tell.”What better way to get the issue out, all except I'm sure CNN did not mean for it to backfire as a plant.
At a debate in June, all of the Democratic candidates said they favored rescinding the policy. The Republican candidates, meanwhile, have favored continuing it, saying that it is a sensible approach or that it would be a distraction to integrate openly gay service members into the armed forces at a time of war.
Efforts to prompt the House and Senate to repeal the legislation have gained little traction. Senior leaders at the Pentagon are on the record as saying the Department of Defense will follow the lead of Congress.
Activities planned on Friday to mark the anniversary of the legislation are to center on a rally on the Mall in tribute to the service members discharged under the policy. Sponsors of the rally include organizations like the Human Rights Campaign, Servicemembers United, Log Cabin Republicans, Servicemembers Legal Defense Network and Liberty Education.Let the truth unravel.....Don't tell me that CNN did not know what they were doing.
