McCain Will Help Make DADT Repeal Work

Senate Armed Services Committee Ranking Member John McCain (R-AZ) “said Thursday that he would work to help implement the repeal of the military’s ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy, despite his opposition to that legislation,” The Hill reports.

McCain signaled that he had made peace with the lame-duck bill to do away with the military’s ban on openly gay and lesbian service members, of which he had been an outspoken critic.

"I think I have to do everything I can to make sure that the important moral, retention, recruitment, and battle effectiveness of the military is minimized as much as possible," McCain said on Fox Business. "It is a law and I have to do whatever I can to help the men and women who are serving particularly in combat cope with this new situation. I will do everything I can to make it work."
