I think Nancy Pelosi should carefully consider getting her facts "straight" before speaking in public. Greyhawk, blogging at Michelle's:
The Clinton-era "don't ask don't tell" policy, often erroneously referred to as "the Pentagon's", is actually congressionally mandated and can only be changed by some future act of congress.
I think the military should carefully consider changing the policy. We need the most talented people, we need the language skills, we need patriotic Americans who exist across the board in our population. We don’t need moral judgment from the chairman of the Joint Chiefs.

And Peejz at Right Voices reminds Nancy, she voted for it.
