Cheney for DADT Repeal


Citing changes in society and recent signals from military leadership, former vice president Dick Cheney told ABC News' This Week that he believes the time is right to repeal the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy.

"Twenty years ago the military were the strong advocates of 'don't ask, don't tell' when I was secretary of defense," said Cheney. "I think things have changed significantly since then. I see that Don Mullen, or Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has indicated his belief that we ought to support a change in the policy. So, uh, I think my guess is the policy will be changed."
