'Pentagon study dismisses risk of openly gay troops' - Title

WASHINGTON A Pentagon study on gays in the military has determined that overturning the law known as "don't ask, don't tell" might cause some disruption at first but would not create any widespread or long-lasting problems. - Article

However, as pointed out in the article, the facts of the matter will not sway some. Who have made only claims that openly gay troops will affect morale.

And, as this study proves, is just that.

Claims.

Not true.

The numbers again...

14,000 discharged to date. Source? Service Members Legal Defense Fund.
$1.3 Billion tax dollars spent on DADT. Source? Congressmen Patrick Murphy.
Now:
Study shows no effect to morale or unit cohesion during time of war. Source? Pentagon.

You would think after 17yrs of DADT this would be evident.

Apparently some wish to debate, and often ignore, the facts of the matter.
