ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The Department of Defense’s role in the latest WikiLeaks scandal is just one more reason why Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Adm. Mike Mullen should resign immediately.

Mr. Gates and Adm. Mullen have spent the last year campaigning for homosexual rights, specifically by promoting the social engineering known as the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” They clearly crossed the line into partisan politics when they advocated the vote take place before the new, more conservative Congress convenes.

Stop and think about this for a minute. North Korea is shelling South Korea. Iraq, pressured by Iranian influence, seems to be backsliding. The U.S. body count in Afghanistan continues to mount. Despite this, all that Mr. Gates and Adm. Mullen seem to care about is promoting the homosexual lifestyle in the military. They will even try to bamboozle members of Congress into thinking that the push poll they conducted on ending “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” was a valid piece of social research.

Normally, the harm from social engineering does not manifest until after a law is passed. In this case, the harm caused by Mr. Gates‘ and Mr. Mullen’s foolish focus on this issue is already occurring. They should do the honorable thing: Resign, today. Those in the armed forces deserve better.
