Gates Says Obama Administration Too Busy To Look At Don't Ask - Don't Tell

Secretary of Defense Robert Gates says the Obama administration will uphold the laws which includes Don't Ask - Don't Tell. In the video below Gates says the administration has been a little busy and that DADT will "be pushed down the road a little bit."

I am not surprised that President Obama doesn't want to make this change while trying to gain the confidence of the military. Unfortunately, he also want to increase the troops in Afghanistan and DADT is a policy that makes our military weaker by dismissing qualified soldiers. President Obama needs to listen to the many military officials that say this law needs to go. Hopefully he won't wait until the troops are pulled our of Iraq in 18 months but before we weaken our troops even farther.
