Riddle me this Batman! Why aren't SDVOSB companies a Required Source of Supply or Service?

Posted By Guy Timberlake, The American Small Business Coalition, LLC, Monday, August 13, 2012
This will be polarizing and likely cause many to take up arms, but hey, that's why I'm also the "INSTG8R."
 
In light of a recent development where UNICOR was allowed to compete and win business as a HUBZone firm (no, they are not) on a DoD requirement (GAO upheld the award) and my opinion that it opens the door for more rampant pillaging in the shrinking land of small business opportunities, I had a thought about leveling the playing field.
 
Since service-disabled Veterans can be recipients of support offered by the Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled (AbilityOne), wouldn't companies owned/operated by severely disabled Veterans be subject to the same acquisition benefits as UNICOR and AbilityOne? 
 
Why aren't SDVOSB companies considered a "Required Source of Supply/Services?" That would certainly provide maximum benefit to those who made significant sacrifices for our Nation.
 
Riddle me this Batman!

Peace!
