    After all the writings on these documents, it's finally happening, they are getting translated, but not by the government. Perhaps the problem has always been the lack of translators, then again, they got rid of any that were gay. :cuckoo: :

    I understand that, but in this particular case, considering the nature of the work, an evaluation memo of insubordination would have done the trick and allowed necessary work to proceed.

    in that case every gay soldier could sue for the right to stay since gay
    translators dont destroy the troops. I am not a big lawyer guy but that is
    my understanding.

    Well in any case, it's now getting started. My guess is when there is something 'interesting' it will be re-translated by experts.
