US military looks into gay pride flag that was raised over Afghan base…

The Pentagon says that it is looking into that photograph of a soldier hoisting a pride rainbow flag at a base in Afghanistan.

Army Lt. Col. Jimmie E. Cummings Jr., a spokesman for NATO and U.S. forces in Afghanistan, told The Daily Caller that the military is trying to authenticate the photographs.

“I would not call it an ‘investigation,’ but we are looking to see … if the picture was taken somewhere here in Afghanistan or not,” Cummings told TheDC. “We have not been able to verify the photograph as of yet to determine who or where these pictures were taken.”

Cmdr. Bill Speaks, a Defense Department spokesman, told TheDC that there “is no DoD policy that would prohibit an individual service member from doing this,”
