President Obama Signed “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT) Repeal

As promised, President Obama signed the DADT repeal today. Obama said:

“No longer will our country be denied the service of thousands of patriotic Americans who were forced to leave the military … because they happen to be gay. No longer will tens of thousands of Americans in uniform be asked to live a lie or look over their shoulder in order to serve the country that they love.”

Watch the video of President Obama’s speech and the signing of the law on ABC News here.
