Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has announced plans to lift a long-standing ban on military women in combat. It will, he says, 'ensure that the mission is met with the best qualified and most capable people, regardless of gender.' Critics say women are in for a rude awakening and worry that the dynamic of mixing genders could weaken fighting troops. What do you think? Originally aired January 31, 2013.
