Obama to End 'Don't ask, Don't tell' Policy

Ad Feedback

CBNNews.com  - Incoming White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs says Barack Obama will get rid of the controversial "Don't ask, Don't tell" policy on gays in the military.

The policy went into effect during Bill Clinton's presidency. It effectively allowed homosexuals not to disclose the fact that they are gay. Military commanders couldn't ask about it either.

 It's not clear when the Obama Administration will move on this issue, but earlier reports suggested it might not be until next year when Obama presents his bill on this policy to Congress.

Elaine Donnelly of the Center for Military Readiness says if the law is repealed, the armed forces will have a whole new category of misconduct. She doesn't believe this policy will benefit the armed forces in any way.

Donnelly said the Obama administration will have to realize that a social agenda promised to activists in San Francisco and throughout the campaign, if applied to the military, would have harmful consequences.
