NDAA + DADT = WH pinky swear

by Jeremy Hooper

There were whispers going around today suggesting that DADT repeal could be stripped from the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) to which its currently attached. The White House is working to muffle that chatter:

Dan Pfeiffer, White House communications director, said in a statement on Monday evening, "The White House opposes any effort to strip 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' from the National Defense Authorization Act."

*Congressman Frank on where we stand (and why we can't sit around standing much longer):

I congratulate President Obama and Secretary Gates for affirming the importance of prompt Senate action to complete the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” This proposal has the strong support of the President, the Secretary of Defense, and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, as well as solid majorities in the House and Senate. “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” is a policy that was never fair and it damages national security. I urge all those who share our commitment to repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” to lobby Senators of both parties to make sure that it happens.
