Obama to DADT: Please Don't Go!

The Week in Gay

The week started with a federal judge in California pulling the plug on “Don't Ask Don't Tell” — the military policy that bans open service by gay. It ended with the Obama administration asking for a stay on the decision.

Let me repeat that summary: President Barack Obama — who said in his State of the Union address in January 2010: “This year I will work with Congress and our military to finally repeal [Don't Ask Don't Tell]. It is the right thing to do.” — was presented with an opportunity to end DADT. And he is turning his back on it.
