Yesterday the White House, Democratic leaders and gay groups reached a compromise on a measure that would repeal the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell after the Pentagon finishes a study of the military’s policy. Representative Patrick Murphy (D) of Pennsylvania says he has the votes to pass a bill to repeal the measure in the House and that vote counters in the Senate have assured him it will pass there too. When will the Pentagon complete its report? Is this the breakthrough gay advocates have been working for? Should the policy be repealed at all? If so—how soon?
