Colin Powell:: It's Time to Re-Evaluate 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell'


Colin Powell spoke with Fareed Zakaria on CNN's The Situation Room today and said it was time to re-evaluate 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell'.

Said Powell: "We definitely should reevaluate it. It's been 15 years since we put in DADT which was a policy that became a law. I didn't want it to become a law but it became a law. Congress felt that strongly about it. But it's been 15 years and attitudes have changed and so I think it is time for the Congress, since it is their law, to have a full review of it, and I'm quite sure that's what President-elect Obama will want to do."

Following Powell's remarks, Wolf Blitzer held a useless interview with former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell, who is running to be the next chairman of the Republican Party and is confident the policy works even though "he doesn't have Powell's experience" in the military.

Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. TY, Us black folk give each the "stink eye" in Weho and the suburbs occasionally, trust. Gay or straight, a lot of times some of us want to be the only Negro in the room. Can I get a witness on that from some black folk here? Every group and sub-group has the exact same issues.

    Which brings us to Oscar.

    Actually, why bother.
