White House Committed to Overturning ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’

Washington, D.C.-(ENEWSPF)- White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said August 11 that the Obama Administration is still committed to overturning the current "Don’t Ask, Dont Tell" policy which prevents gays and lesbians from serving openly in the American Armed Forces.

Gibbs said, "I will say this — all things that the President made commitments on and is focused on doing.  We have a process underway with the Pentagon to make changes, as the President outlined in the campaign and, quite frankly, even before the campaign, in "don’t ask, don’t tell" as somebody running for the U.S. Senate in 2004.  We have a process to make good on overturning "don’t ask, don’t tell."

Gibbs was not specific on what "the process" involves, nor did reporters press him on that issue.
