The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) hailed a federal court decision to ban enforcement of the US military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, according to a statement released on Thursday.
"The decision to ban enforcement of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” is a welcome rejection of an unjust, ineffective and discriminatory policy that prevents talented Americans from serving in our armed forces solely on the basis of their sexual orientation," the statement read.
The statement continued saying " The ADL firmly believes that hiring and firing decisions should be based on merit and performance, not on personal characteristics. No one should be dismissed from a job because of real or perceived sexual orientation."
