It's out of whack, and I don't think any serious person could say it's not...The policy as implemented does not work as I announced and as the leaders of the military at that time in 1993 pledged to implement it.

President William J. Clinton, December 17, 1999

President William J. Clinton, July 19, 1993

For a period of about one year (October 1992 to November 1993), along with several other energetic and dedicated soldiers, I helped raise money, lobby Congress, and organize a campaign. We also participated in radio and television interviews and offered our personal stories to print media. Some news shows labeled us gay activists. Well, I submit that people still disagree bitterly about what it means to be . . . an "activist."
