Obama vows to scrap don’t ask don’t tell

The ABC is reporting that President Obama has pledged to get rid of don’t ask, don’t tell- the policy adopted during the Clinton years when Bill Clinton was unable to persuade Congress to remove discrimination against gays and lesbians in the US armed forces.

President Obama is quoted as saying that 12,000 service personnel have been drummed out of the military based on their sexuality.

No deadline has been put on when the change might be enacted.
