In the eight months since President Barack Obama nominated Eric Fanning to become secretary of the Army, the first openly gay man to be recommended to that branch's highest ranking civilian position is no closer than he was months ago to a confirmation. Republican Sen. of Kansas Pat Roberts is holding up Fanning's confirmation. The lawmaker wants Obama to promise not to move Guantanamo Bay detainees to the Fort Leavenworth, Kansas military installation.
Late last month, Roberts said on the Senate floor, "Let me be very clear on this — as a veteran, a Marine — I support Mr. Eric Fanning for this post. If the White House calls and assures me that terrorists held at Guantanamo will not come to Ft. Leavenworth, I will release the hold - immediately."
