Notable Quotable: Stephen Walt on Gays in the US MIlitary

Came across this piece on the Foreign Policy website today by Stephen M. Walt, a self-described "Realist in an Ideological Age":

"As a senior officer commented during my visit to the Truman last week, it is a good thing for the U.S. military to be a fairly accurate reflection of American society rather than an artificial caste, and repealing "don't ask, don't tell" is a positive step in that direction. And contrary to what narrow-minded bigots might think, we'll get a better fighting force out of it too."
