Defense Secretary Gates: Military Gay Ban Repeal ‘Down the Road’


On FOX News Sunday, Chris Wallace asked Defense Secretary Robert Gates about White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs' statement earlier this year that "yes," Obama planned to repeal the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.

I think the president and I feel like we've got a lot on our plates right now and let's push that one down the road a little bit."
