Gays? No Way! Drugs? Okay!

While the United State Military continues to discharge soldiers who are found to be gay (even those with advanced degrees in medicine), a new policy at the Pentagon is allowing former criminals (including those with drug offenses) to join the fight against terrorism. A recent report by Salon.com finds that these recruits cause more behavioral problems for Military officers on the ground who are charged with leading troops.

So while writing to your gay boyfriend back home about how much you love him is an offense that qualifies you for getting kicked off the battlefield, apparently going into battle high as a kite is not. I am comforted to know that gang-bangers and drug dealers are out there defending my freedom.
