Read it all.By ANNE FLAHERTY ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERWASHINGTON — Defense Secretary Robert Gates on Tuesday gave lukewarm support to a new White House-backed plan for a vote in Congress to immediately repeal the law that bans gays from serving openly in the military.
Even though the plan would let Gates decide when to implement repeal of the “don't ask, don't tell” policy, he has said he would have preferred more time to study the issue before Congress acts.
Gates “continues to believe that ideally the DOD review should be completed before there is any legislation” changing the law, Pentagon press secretary Geoff Morrell said. Gates has previously said he didn't want to change the policy until the study is finished in December.
