Or Powell right to the kisser!  to John McCain and the Republican cabal that wants to keep DADT in place. Gen. Colin Powell reversed his previous position and has come out in support of ending DADT in the US military. 

 Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese said. “His powerful voice for ending ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ is a tipping point in favor of the brave men and women who are serving our nation in silence.”

 Solmonese went after the clammy arguments put forth by McCain–“I want to ask the senators and members who are speaking out against this repeal: What do you know about military effectiveness that General Powell, Secretary Gates, Admiral Mullen and the commander in chief don’t know?”
