Don’t Ask Don’t Tell two steps closer to repeal

Yesterday, the U.S. House and a Senate committee approved amendments which would repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell - but as Vanessa noted this week – only after some “compromises” are met.

Under the compromise, the repeal would occur after a military review of the matter and subsequent approval by Obama, the defense secretary and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

On The Joy Behar Show, Lt. Dan Choi – an Iraq veteran who announced he was gay on The Rachel Maddow Show to protest DADT – discusses why this isn’t much of a “compromise” at all.
