Smart bombs, but dumb policies. Hello, this is Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. The headline in last Wednesday's New York Times read, "Sexual Assaults in Military Raise Alarm in Capitol." The Washington Post ran with the same story citing this alarming fact, "The estimated number of military personnel victimized by sexual assault and related crimes has surged by 35 percent over the past two years." At a press conference, President Obama said he had "no tolerance for this behavior and he has ordered the Secretary of Defense to prevent these sex crimes." Well, what could have possibly brought about such a massive surge in sexual assaults? Could the radical social policies pushed by the Obama administration onto the military be a factor? The Post and the Times both failed to mention that it was two years ago when the 1993 law against open homosexuality in the military was repealed. The President's outrage is the height of hypocrisy. How could a Commander-in-Chief expect good order and discipline when his policies undermine the moral foundation?
