From the article: "I apologize to Ambassador Hormel and any LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) Americans who may question my commitment to their civil rights," Hagel said in Friday’s statement. "I am fully supportive of ’open service’ and committed to LGBT military families."

Except from what I have read he has yet to apologize to Ambassador Hormel. So just how "sorry" is he?

Ambassador Hormel, when asked if he accepted the apology, said simply, "No". At least that's what I read the other day.

Who is this man kidding ? After so many years and only when it's going to affect his agenda "I'm sorry" and to only read abut the man doesn't have the courtesy to meet face to face with him and apologize that shows no class and cowardliness .

Yes, he is not a troll.

Except when he's trying to mess with the feeble minds of the uber "religious" kooks.
