Propaganda Minister Robert Gibbs Claims DADT Repeal Will Strengthen National Security

I am not sure what the rationale is for Gibbs' claim DADT repeal will strengthen national security. Our military isn't having any trouble recruiting now. The challenge they face is retaining combat trained and experienced troops. 60% of combat troops oppose repeal of DADT. I can't see how this will help with retention in those units.

I think it is important to note that although 60% of combat troops oppose the repeal, 84% of combat troops that had knowingly worked with a homosexual had a non-issue or positive experience. Most opposition is based on unfounded notions and bias. As a military member, I do not always agree with how my fellow soldiers live or agree with their belief systems. This is what I care about; Are you great at your job and can I trust you with my life.
