Condi Rice bemoaned the fact that the State Department is having a hard time finding qualified language experts—particularly people that speak Arabic and Farsi. New York Dem Gary Ackerman had a suggestion for Rice: Perhaps the State Department could hire the 322 foreign language experts discharged from the military since 1992 for being gay and lesbian.
Well, it seems that the military has gone around and fired a whole bunch of people who speak foreign languages — Farsi and Arabic, etc… after they trained them in their foreign language schools for 63 weeks, and presumably they all pass all kinds of security things, and many of them told on themselves and were fired. For some reason, the military seems more afraid of gay people than they are against terrorists, because they’re very brave with the terrorists. I mean, If the terrorists ever got a hold of this information, they’d get a platoon of lesbians to chase us out of Baghdad.
The affirmative suggestion that I would make is why can’t the State Department look to pick up all those people that were fired from the military because [the State Department does not] have a policy [against hiring gays and lesbians], and put these three dozen Farsi and Arabic people to work.
