Don’t Ask Don’t Tell Repeal Signed by President Obama

President Barack Obama signed the repeal of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” today ending the 17 year discriminatory practice baningn gay service men and women from serving openly in the military.

From CNN article:

The repeal “will strengthen our national security and uphold (America’s) ideals,” Obama said. “No longer will tens of thousands of Americans in uniform be asked to live a lie.”

“I believe this is the right thing to do for our military,” he added. “It’s the right thing to do, period.”

This is a moment “more than two centuries in the making,” the president said. Over the course of U.S. history, “gay Americans fought just as hard (and) gave just as much to protect” the country as anyone else. “We are a nation that believes all men and women are created equal.”
