Pentagon Suspends 'Don't Ask Don't Tell,' but Appeals Order

Hosted by

The Pentagon has ordered military recruiters to accept applicants who volunteer that they’re gay or lesbian. But the applicants also have to be told that could change. It’s all about the likely appeal of a judge’s order that 'Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell' is unconstitutional and cannot be enforced. One of the best known soldiers discharged when his homosexuality became known is former Army Lieutenant Dan Choi. Yesterday in Times Square, he re-enlisted. John Schwartz is domestic correspondent for the New York Times.
