Lieberman: Pentagon Should Release ‘DADT’ Study Immediately


Senator Joe Lieberman spoke with MSNBC today and said that he disagrees with John McCain and that the Pentagon should release the results of its 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' study immediately, the Wonk Room reports.

Said Lieberman:

"I’m not giving up on us doing a repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t tell during the lame duck session. To make that possible, I hope that the Defense Department can find a way to issue this report that they’ve got pretty much done, but going through clearance now, as quickly as possible and certainly before December 1st. We’ve got time to do this, and it’s the right thing to do."

Late on Friday, Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell expressed anger that encouraging results from the report had been leaked and said that Defense Sec'y Gates has no intention of releasing it before it has been reviewed.
