Supreme Court rules that DADT stays until 9th Circuit reviews; McCains split on issue

The Supreme Court has allowed the military “don’t ask don’t tell” policy to stay in effect for now, while the Ninth Circuit reconsiders the appeal. The Court did not comment, and its temporary stay does not really give much of a clue as to how it would rule if it heard the case. AOL News has a headline here.

MSNBC also has an article noting the split between Arizona Senator and former GOP presidential candidate John McCain and his daughter Cindy on ending “don’t ask don’t tell”. McCain wants the DADT removal stripped from the defense reauthorization bill, and led a filibuster (I still think a silly and unethical device) in the Senate to prevent a vote in September.
