Defense Sec. Gates Supports DADT Repeal

Defense Sec. Gates Supports DADT Repeal


Defense Secretary Robert Gates, who last month warned Congress against legislative repeal of "don't ask, don't tell" prior to the completion of a Department of Defense study, has added his name to the list of people who support a new compromise for repeal that will be voted on this week.

A Pentagon spokesperson issued the following statement: "Secretary Gates continues to believe that ideally the DOD review should be completed before there is any legislation to repeal the Don't Ask Don't Tell law. With Congress having indicated that is not possible, the Secretary can accept the language in the proposed amendment."
