Don’t Blame The Military For “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell”

To the editors:

Re: “Bias in Camouflage,” editorial, Oct. 5.

Although you acknowledge that the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” policy was enacted by Congress, you make an unsupported leap of logic when you state that it justifies “banning military recruiters from campus.” “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” is a Congressional act that the military cannot overrule. If you are serious, you should call for a ban on visits from members of Congress and former President Bill Clinton, who introduced the policy.
