The White House Blog: “The President on the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Repeal Act of 2010: ‘An Historic Step'”

“Today, President Obama released a statement on the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Repeal Act of 2010. Today’s historic vote would not have happened without the tireless efforts of many, including leaders in Congress, advocates, and the clear leadership provided by the President. As recently as this morning, the President has been reaching out to Senators from both sides of the aisle to help secure votes. It was only 11 months ago that the President called for the repeal in his first State of the Union and then laid out the plan, including the Pentagon’s Comprehensive Review for the Repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, that has taken us to where we are today.”
