Iraq Veteran on "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" GOP debate question

Antonio Agnone is a former officer in the US Marine Corps who proudly and honorably served the US in the Iraq war. Here is his stance on the Republican Presidential debate and the failure of any of the candidates to support repealing the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy toward LGBTQ members. Please take 2 minutes to listen to his viewpoint.

Since the inception of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, more American service members have been kicked out for their sexuality than before the policy was instituted. Despite a critical lack of Farsi and Arabic translators, the US Military has drummed them out in record numbers. This policy is wrong from a human-rights standpoint and is wrong for the National Security of the US. Please keep this in mind when you exercise your right to vote in the Presidential election in 2008.
