Los Angeles (April 2, 2012) - In May, 2010, Palm Center director Aaron Belkin debated Elaine Donnelly, a leading opponent of DADT repeal, at the Air Command and Staff College (ACSC) in Alabama.
The Air Force had planned to release the video of the debate, but the ACSC Commandant was unhappy with the session and did what he could to block its release. (Ten rejection and delay notifications from his office are posted here: http://bit.ly/GYBSWL).
The Palm Center has managed to obtain a copy of the video, which we have posted at howwewon.com . For the full story of the debate and the video, see the March/April 2012 edition of OutServe Magazine: http://bit.ly/HnGzdW.
