The Center for Military Readiness castigated President Obama’s nomination of Solicitor General Elena Kagan to the U.S. Supreme Court because of what it described as her “deliberate hostility” toward the military.

“It is unfortunate that President Barack Obama has chosen to replace the only military veteran on the Supreme Court with a nominee whose only significant record indicates deliberate hostility and opposition to laws protecting the culture and best interests of the American military,” center President Elaine Donnelly said in a statement issued by the independent public policy organization that specializes in military/social issues.

Senators should question “Kagan’s flawed logic and anti-military attitude that she expressed by signing an amicus brief challenging the Solomon Amendment in Rumsfeld v. Fair,” Donnelly said. “It is significant that the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of that legislation, which protects equal access for military recruiters on college campuses, with a unanimous (8-0) vote. Even Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg did not agree with Kagan’s anti-military views.”

Donnelly also questioned Kagan’s record as solicitor general, saying, “Kagan failed to appeal the unjustified and problematic procedural ruling of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in a case challenging the 1993 law stating that homosexuals are not eligible for military service.”
