White House Issues Statement In Support Of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" Repeal

Chris Geidner reports at Metro Weekly that the White House has issued a statement supporting the National Defense Authorization Act to which the compromised repeal of DADT is attached. A portion of the statement mentions DADT specifically.
Policy Concerning Homosexuality in the Armed Forces: The Administration supports section 591 as it would allow for completion of the Comprehensive Review, enable the Department of Defense to assess the results of the review, and ensure that the implementation of the repeal is consistent with the standards of military readiness, effectiveness, unit cohesion, recruiting and retention. Such an approach recognizes the critical need to allow our military and their families the full opportunity to inform and shape the implementation process through a thorough understanding of their concerns, insights and suggestions.
