The Marines Say Goodbye to 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell'

Hosted by

What do Marines do if homosexuality is against their religion and a gay man moves into the barracks? "Follow orders." That's the message at Camp Pendleton, 29 Palms and other Marine bases when it comes to repeal of the ban on gays and lesbians in the armed forces. We hear about the mandatory training now underway. Also, will Congress approve expanded oil drilling in the waters off Southern California. And are the Lakers out of it? On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, the death and the deadly legacy of Osama bin Laden.
