Even now, statements made under DADT should not be counted when made under conditions of legal confidentiality
It’s important to remember that sometimes, in relation to security of other government operations, people make personal statements to others under conditions of absolute sworn guarantees of confidentiality. Still, it seems that such statements about personal activities have been deemed as “telling” in many instances in the past, particularly when made to other military personnel with regard to matters like health care or security clearance investigations. Statements made to others sworn to confidentiality should never be regarded as “violations” of DADT even now.
