Statement of Army Lt. Gen. Thomas Bostick

            The Department of the Army released today a response by Lt. Gen. Thomas Bostick concerning an editorial entitled, “New Gay Army,” that appeared in the Sept. 16 edition of the Washington Times:

            “The statements attributed to me are inaccurate.  I simply did not make those statements.  Moreover, as a member of the Department of Defense Comprehensive Review Working Group, I have been extremely careful not to express any views that might influence the integrity of the comprehensive review.  I therefore have not expressed any opinions that might suppress the opinions of anyone participating in our discussions.  I find the statements falsely attributed to me to be personally reprehensible.”
