Kagan Stands By Opposition to DADT

Elena Kagan, under questioning from Jeff Sessions, just stood by her opposition to the military’s “don’t ask don’t tell” policy, calling it “unwise and unjust.” When she barred military recruiters from having access to the Harvard Law School office of career services, she said she was trying to abide by the school’s anti-discrimination policy and “protect” gay and lesbian students. Sessions argued that she acted outside her legal authority and only reversed herself once the school faced a loss of funding.
