Could it be that the right vs. wrong is not so clearly cut as we would like it to be (to keep things simpler?)? I have no idea... as I said, limited information + not enough time to dig for much more.

      I have a feeling that this legislation is to cover certain legal hindquarters within the military.  The side-effects of not covering those hindquarters could be... uncomfortable to our country, and so good people decided to protect the country rather than protecting morality.
