In a front-page story published in the February 11 edition of Human Events, David Freddoso explains reasons why the charter of the Pentagon’s Defense Advisory Committee on Women in the Services should be allowed to expire at the end of February 2002. This and other articles appearing in the Washington Times (Feb. 1), United Press International (Jan. 31), National Review Online (Feb. 13), (Feb. 12, (Feb. 1) and CNS (Jan. 31) reported on statements made at a news conference organized by the Center for Military Readiness on Jan. 31, 2002.

The Defense Advisory Committee on Women in the Services was established in 1951, when there were virtually no women, civilian or military, in leadership positions. Fifty years later, there is no need for a tax-funded civilian advisory committee to tell the Defense Department what to do regarding military women. The appointment of new members, or continuation of the DACOWITS in any form, would be tantamount to endorsement of the most problematic social engineering policies devised by civilians in the Clinton Administration. A decision to drop the DACOWITS would demonstrate that women in uniform have truly "arrived" as valued members of the national defense team. It would also benefit uniformed women, as well as men, who want to serve in a well-trained, effective military. . . Read More

The Bill Clinton "Legacy Project," instigated last December by the former president and his friends, is off and running in an unlikely direction. Clinton’s record as Commander in Chief was abysmal. That did not stop the New York Times from publishing a New Years Day op-ed piece headlined "Winning With the Military Clinton Left Behind." The hubristic piece, written by Michael O’Hanlon of the Brookings Institution, claimed that "...President Bush stands on the verge of winning a war with the military that Bill Clinton bequeathed him."The theme was quickly picked up by the same partisans who recently denounced Senior Presidential Advisor Karl Rove for injecting "politics" into public discussions of the War on Terrorism. The Clinton Legacy Project is determined to "spin" the story to Clinton’s advantage, while hypocritically denouncing anyone who happens to notice the obvious. . . Read More

CMR attorneys are pleased to announce that a Motion for Summary Judgment was filed on October 24, 2001, with the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, in order to end the harassment lawsuit filed against CMR in April of 1996. Speaking at the 6th Annual CMR Celebration in Washington D.C. on October 18, CMR attorney Frank Northam of Webster, Chamberlain & Bean gave a concise overview of the baseless litigation, and expressed total confidence that attorney Susan Barnes and her client, former F-14 pilot Carey Lohrenz, would be unable to continue their case following this Motion. The oversized filing was supported by voluminous documents, testimony, and affidavits that completely refute bogus charges that were brought in a failed attempt to silence CMR. Lead attorney Kent Masterson Brown has petitioned the Court for Summary Judgment because Plaintiff Lohrenz and attorney Barnes do not have the facts necessary to support their case. . . Read More
