This is ridiculous on so many levels!!! First of all, the whole notion of sensitivity "training" of any kind is a bunch of liberal mamby pamby hooey.
Second of all, WHY in the h*ll are these reeducation sessions being done on the BATTLEFIELD, of all places??? They say, "We HOPE that it will have little impact on their combat and security operations here." Hope? HOPE???!!! Maybe "hope" worked to bamboozle the American public into electing Obama, but you need a little more than HOPE when it comes to combat and security!
Third, repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell has not even been certified yet! Why are we rushing into these liberal kumbaya circles in a war zone when the repeal isn't in effect? If it could be found to hurt combat readiness, then we sure as h*ll shouldn't be bringing sensitivity trainings to promote it into combat.
Bottom line: Get the h*ll away from our men and women in uniform on the front lines in active war zones! Their lives and their immediate mission is more important than indulging in your group therapies!

“It’s absurd because the military has more important things to think about in that dangerous part of the world,” she said. “For the administration to say this is more important than even with the troops we’re trying to train in that part of the world, I think it shows flawed priorities at best. It is ridiculous.”
