It’s being reported today that Panetta will announce tomorrow that he’s eliminating the direct ground combat exclusion that prevents women from serving at brigade level if the unit will be engaged in direct combat. But Mark Levin wonders if this is just another radical egalitarian social experiment.
He was clear on his show that he’s completely against it – not because he’s a chauvinist but because we as a country don’t put our women on the front lines of battle. He asks if all the Joint Chiefs of Staff throughout the many years of our Republic all wrong? Is that what we are saying today?
Levin says that he doesn’t believe putting women on the front line of combat does anything to improve our fighting force. And he doesn’t like the dictatorial way this is being decided by Panetta – on his way out.
