To Steve Benen, who points us to a new DOD conclusion that DADT repeal is going, in Secretary Leon Pannetta's words, "very well" -- and reminds us that those who opposed repeal did in fact make a string of predictions that turned out to be flat-out wrong.
I'm a big fan of this sort of reporting/blogging: going back to look at predictions and seeing how they turned out. Of course, it isn't always relevant. Many bills are not contentious because of disagreement about whether government, for example, should do something -- not what will happen if government tries. But when it is relevant, the more of this we can get from reporters, the better, in my view. Of course, that goes together with something even more important -- reporting on implementation. Again, something that doesn't happen nearly as much as it should.
At any rate: nice catch!
