Pentagon Moves to Take 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' Off the Books

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta is set today to end the ban on gays serving openly in the military, certifying that the repeal of the 17-year-old "don't ask, don't tell" policy would not hurt the U.S. military.

The decision comes two weeks after the top Pentagon brass told Panetta that ending the ban would not affect military readiness.

Barack Obama promised during his 2008 presidential campaign to end don't ask, don't tell.
