Openly Gay Military Unit Created by the Pentagon-Fiction! & Satire!
Summary of eRumor:
A forwarded email that appears to be a press release that says that the Pentagon has created an openly gay military unit in response to President Obama’s directive to end the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy. The press release says that the Pentagon plans to call the unit “The 69th Fighting Sodomites” and include changes to uniforms and dorm equipment.
The Pentagon has issued no such press release and this is an article found on the satirical Scooters Report web site.
President Obama called for the end of the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy in the U.S. Military in his January 28, 2010 State of the Union address.
