Joe Jervis pointed out something important. For any of us, me included, who thought the Joint Chiefs looked all stony last night when Obama mentioned DADT repeal, simply because protocol required it of them, they weren’t so stony when Obama mentioned Iran.
It seems the Joint Chiefs are permitted to weigh in publicly during the State of the Union when they like what their Commander in Chief says. And they clearly didn’t like what he had to say about making the Armed Forces less discriminatory.
It’s a sad day when insubordination is not only tolerated in our uniform military, but instigated at the top.
