Last week Rep. Marty Meehan (D-MA) unveiled legislation to overturn the ban on openly gay and lesbian soldiers serving in the military, or, as it's more popularly (and infamously) known, the "don't ask, don't tell" policy. Colbert weighs in.
As Stephen mentions, the policy has led to the discharge of over 11,000 service members; 37 of which were Arabic translators. With the military stretched as thin as it currently is, can we really afford to lose these crucial soldiers? All for the sake of a blatantly discriminatory policy?
