The Department of Defense has released it’s study on the potential repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell and has determined that overturning the law might cause some disruption at first but would not create any widespread or long-lasting problems.
That’s that. The top brass at DoD has said reversing this policy will have minimum blow back. The survey is based on responses by some 115,000 troops and 44,200 military spouses to more than a half million questionnaires distributed last summer by an independent polling firm.
Any elected official standing in the way of this law finally being overturned, namely this geriatric, stands in the way of progress.
***UPDATE*** – President Obama issues a statement urging Senate passage. That’s more like it.
