Repeal of DADT ‘could take years to complete’

Every report we see about the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell gets worse. The Pentagon-types keep using leaks to media to slow down the process and defy the wishes of the Commander-in-Chief:

The Pentagon plans to take the first step in ending the federal ban on gays from serving in the military next Tuesday, when it announces a special investigation into how and when to repeal the long-standing 1993 law.

But that upcoming inquiry — and, ultimately, the end of the military’s “Don’t ask, don’t tell” ban — could take years to complete, officials have recently suggested.

Obama didn’t call for an investigation that would take years. He said he was going to work to repeal the DADT policy — this year.
