File under President Obama win will be allowed to fight for our country on the front lines for the first time.
-- men and women alike.
Everyone is committed to doing the job.
They're fighting in there dying together.
And the time has come.
To our policies to recognize that reality.
But the reality is our military might have to lower it's standards in order to help those women qualify for combat should -- come before fighting ability.
Retired lieutenant colonel Robert Maginnis joins us right now he's the author of deadly consequences how cowards are pushing women.
-- Colonel they are on the front lines now that's you're not saying the women on the front lines who were taking bullets -- now.
Or shouldn't be -- is saying that we should be low in the standards to put them there.
We should lower the standards we have 204000.
Women that are.
In the armed forces doing a phenomenal job some of humor there have demonstrated gallantry.

And are we that type of country.

We have a combat proven armed forces the standards are high because that's what the enemy requires in order for us to -- him and -- The reality is that most women can do a few might be able to -- and if they do you know it that congress has got to make that tough decision.
Do we want to put young men and young women together with a sexual dynamics and the in habitable consequences of that mixture and congress is.
Relegated its responsibility.
You know they're leaving it to the administration the administration is charged by radical feminists that says no this is about equality we could care less about the readiness of the course.
We need congress to step in military -- you're here today because you feel as though diversity is taking precedence over readiness.
Anyone see it stopped because our series in danger in our enemy is not doing the same thing.
Lieutenant colonel Robert Maginnis thanks so much.
Thanks Brian all right --
