Don't Ask, Don't Tell - Petreus in Favor of Repeal

Blog post from the ACLU that reports Gen. David Petreus joins Joint Chiefs Chair Admiral Mike Mullen and Secretary of Defense Robert Gates in favoring a repeal of the Don't Ask, Don't Tell (DADT) policy and allowing gays to serve openly.  It also mentions studies of other countries that have allowed gays to serve openly, and that it hasn't affected unit cohesion and hasn't caused large resignations, indicating there aren't a lot of soldiers unwilling to serve with LGBT soldiers.
