Some DADT obstruction from McCain and just an interesting article on the same subject, both from the evil internet lefty hub Huffington Post:
McCain's DADT letter Signed by Dead Guys
- The average age of the officers is 74. The "oldest living signer is 98, and several signers died in the time since the document was published." Servicemembers United Executive Director Alex Nicholson added that only "a small fraction of these officers have even served in the military during the 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' period, much less in the 21st century military," so it's hard to believe that they "know how accepting and tolerant 18- and 21-year-olds are today."

- "At least one signer, Gen. Louis Menetrey, was deceased when the letter was published and didn't sign the document himself. According to a footnote on the letter, his wife signed the document for him after his death using power of attorney — six years after Alzheimer's disease robbed him of the ability to communicate."
Relevant as always, McFossil.

And this is just an interesting article on who exactly is losing by the DADT policy:
