‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’ Drags Forward…

The release date of the Pentagon Comprehensive Review on
the Implementation of repeal of 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' has
been moved up. According to Secretary of Defense Robert
Gates the report will now be made available on November
30th. The LGBT org Log Cabin Republicans have pursued
a three-front strategy against 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell.' First
lobbying for repeal in Congress, then consulting with the
Department of Defense & thirdly filing suit in federal court.
The case went to trial in July of 2010 & Judge Virginia Phillips
ruled on September 9, 2010 that the policy violated the First
& Fifth Amendments of the Constitution. For the 8 days that
DADT did not exist there weren’t any incidents among the
ranks in the military. The Supreme Court granted a stay
continuing DADT pending on the Obama administration’s
appeal of Judge Phillip’s ruling. Updates to Come…:)

As President Obama tries to cram more and more into a tight lame duck legislative calendar, every day the Senate has to consider this report is critical to efforts to repeal 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell.' Log Cabin Republicans firmly supported the study process and we are grateful for the efforts of the Comprehensive Working Group to deliver the report ahead of schedule. With Defense leaders including Secretary Gates and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Mike Mullen calling for repeal and the Pentagon having made early completion of this report a priority, it is incumbent upon the Senate to overcome any recalcitrance and end this failed and unconstitutional policy as soon as possible.
