A Pentagon document outlining retirement and other discharge policies for service members with disabilities, lists homosexuality together with mental retardation and personality disorders.

*facepalms* It's not just the utter insanity of the statement. It's the utter insanity of it being redacted in the first time, and then passing by who knows how many layers of internal reviews, editors, etc - with nobody saying "wait a second, do you realize how bad this will look?".

I'm not an american, but I *so* want to believe that there are more brains in the Pentagon than this suggests. Because, really, if the world needs something, is smart, coolheaded, rational people in the Pentagon.
