The Obama administration has made no effort to dispute reports that the U.S. is providing secret military training to Syria's opposition rebels and continues to favor vague rhetoric over specifics about its policy regarding the Middle Eastern nation — particularly on the question of whether to arm rebels.
Most countries try to hide their nuclear-weapons programs. When caught building a reactor, they claim it's for electric power. They disguise missile tests as satellite launches. When they actually test a functional bomb, they argue it's for self-defense.
"These benefits shall be extended to the same-sex domestic partners and, where applicable, children of same-sex domestic partners, once the service member and their same-sex domestic partner have signed a declaration attesting to the existence of their committed relationship," Mr. Panetta said.
Mr. Panetta said the federal Defense of Marriage Act restricts those benefits to heterosexual couples, though the Pentagon has not ruled out offering them to homosexual couples at some point.
