Is Jim Webb a anti gay Bigot?
One thing is certain, Sen Jim Webb and Gen Peter Pace support the same policy regarding homosexuals in the military.
"I think [the military's don't ask/don't tell policy] is a good policy for the basic reason that when you look at the confined quarters that people live in, I think you would have some extremely difficult problems if there were more overt lifestyle issues at play. I think there have always been gays in the military and there always will be. Young people living in cramped quarters need to have zones of privacy. I think it has worked because it allowed people to keep zones of privacy. That's why I support it." (James Webb in the San Diego Union-Tribune, 10/30/05)
"I support the don't ask, don't tell rule. I think that the military is a different environment. It's one where we've always had gays in the military, we always will." (James Webb on MSNBC Hardball, 6/8/06)
I must of missed these quotes in Lowell's post. Pace was truthful and put his feelings out there-right or wrong. We can argue morality all day, but please Lowell stop trying to convince us that Webb is a champion of gay rights in the military. They both support the same policy.
