A federal judge in Tacoma, Washington, has ruled that the Don't Ask, Don't Tell discharge of Air Force Major Margaret Witt was unconstitutional and that she should be reinstated.
Judge Ronald B. Leighton wrote that Major Witt posed no danger to unit morale:
To the contrary, it was Major Witt's suspension and ultimate discharge that caused a loss of morale throughout the squadron. In addition, several other former service members testified about their military experience as closeted gays or lesbians and the positive reaction of their fellow servicemen and women once they acknowledged their sexual orientation.
We've got Major Witt on the show tonight, along with Lieutenant Colonel Victor Fehrenbach. This is going to be a big, big night. We'll see you at 9 Eastern.
