Senator John McCain said that he would listen to the leaders of the military before considering the repeal of DADT. He even used General Colin Powell as an example of who he listens to about such important decisions affecting the military. There is big news on that front today.
General Colin Powell:
“In the almost 17 years since the ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ legislation was passed, attitudes and circumstances have changed,” General Powell said in a statement issued by his office. He added: “I fully support the new approach presented to the Senate Armed Services Committee this week by Secretary of Defense Gates and Admiral Mullen.”
Any Questions, Senator McCain?
