Military Tells Congress Not To Change "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" Gay Law

Robert Gates and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mike Mullen told the House Armed Services Committee that changing the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" Gay Military Law is a mistake, and that the military needs to give their feedback before any changes are made.

"'Our military must be afforded the opportunity to inform us of their concerns, insights and suggestions if we are to carry out this change successfully,' Gates and Mullen wrote to the panel's chairman, Missouri Democrat Ike Skelton." {1}
