Lieberman Pushes DADT Repeal

Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) introduces his bill to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” today. As I write, he’s giving a presser that (alas) I was unable to attend. But via Jen DiMascio at Politico, Defense Secretary Robert Gates issued instructions for his information-gathering team — Pentagon General Counsel Jeh Johnson and U.S. Army-Europe chief Lt. Gen. Carter Ham — about what criteria they should study to recommend a repeal of the ban on open gay military service:

Determine any impacts to military readiness, military effectiveness and unit cohesion, recruiting/retention, and family readiness that may result from repeal ofthe law and recommend any actions that should be taken in light of such impacts.

Determine leadership, guidance, and training on standards of conduct and new policies.

Determine appropriate changes to existing policies and regulations, including but not limited to issues regarding personnel management, leadership and training, facilities, investigations, and benefits.

Recommend appropriate changes (if any) to the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

Monitor and evaluate existing legislative proposals to repeal 10 U.S.C § 654 and proposals that may be introduced in the Congress during the period of the review.

Assure appropriate ways to monitor the workforce climate and military effectiveness that support successful follow-through on implementation.

Evaluate the issues raised in ongoing litigation involving 10 U.S.C § 654.

So far, Gen. James Conway, the commandant of the Marine Corps, has been the only military service chief to oppose the repeal. Gates’ first criterion speaks to Conway’s concerns.
