More gay men and lesbians are being kicked out of the military today than before President Clinton’s much vaunted "don’t ask, don’t tell" policy. According to a new report out this week, the number of gay men and lesbians discharged from the military this year is 42 percent higher than in 1994, the year in which the "don’t ask, don’t tell" policy was started.

Here to discuss the new report and recent attacks on gay and lesbian service members are two guests.
