Sen. Barbara Boxer, no stranger to controversy, compared the United States to Iran, North Korea and Pakistan this week, saying America’s Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy puts it on a par with those three countries.

Appearing with Connecticut Sen. Joseph Lieberman at a news conference on Thursday, Boxer, D-Calif., suggested the military’s policy banning gays from openly serving in the military puts the U.S. in the same camp as countries notorious for their human rights violations. Democrats are pushing to repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell during the lame duck session.
