McCain Will Support DADT Repeal

McCain Will Support DADT Repeal


Sen. John McCain, an avid defender of the law that barred gays and lesbians from serving openly in the military, said he will now make sure that the repeal is properly implemented.

McCain said he had made peace with the legislation passed during the lame-duck session of the Senate last month, according to The Hill.

"I think I have to do everything I can to make sure that the impact on the morale, retention, recruitment and battle effectiveness of the military is minimized as much as possible," McCain said Thursday on Fox Business. "It is a law and I have to do whatever I can to help the men and women who are serving, particularly in combat, cope with this new situation. I will do everything I can to make it work."
