According to A.P., the U.S. Army dismissed an 82nd Airborne Sergeant, an Arab language specialist, because he's gay, therefore violating the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.

All I can say is, "Whew! It's a good thing we're not at war in a nation where the native language is Arabic."

Didn't you know? Arabic speakers are terrible for unit cohesion and morale. The other guys just aren't comfortable around them.

But you're forgetting the whole "double negative" thing from basic logic.

A *gay* Arabic speaker cancels himself out. The other soldiers find themselves strangely confortable around him, and morale goes through the roof.

That's crap. I personally don't give a rat's rump what a person does with their private life. The army needs all the help they can get right now. I wonder how they found out? It doesn't sound like he was being totally obvious about it. I don't think that fellow soldiers should be able to "out" someone on hearsay.

Ohhhhh, I'm gonna guess the "outing" was based on something far more first hand than hearsay.

In fact, depending on the particular talents the arab langauge expert had, it might have been both first and second hand knowledge.

Sometimes being dirty is what a true patriot has to do.
