    It wasn't a fluke that Bob Gates was left in charge at Defense to oversee the dismantling of DADT, and he did a credible job from what I can tell.
    All hail Orwell!!!

    Bob F-ing Gates pushed to keep DADt off the agenda in 2009, opposed any sort of moratorium (Congressional or executive) on DADt discharges, fought tooth and nail against the California DADT case that twice resulted in a Federal Court Order barring DADT enforcement and stonewalled the "training" for DADt repeal to be complete after he left office so it wouldn't occur on his watch. Justr because he said some nice words about TEH GAYS in a January 2010 Senate hearing doesn't make him a saint on LGBT issues. His actions have spoken much louder than his words.
