Adm. Mike Mullen Will Keep Kicking You Deviants Out of the Military

Adm. Mike Mullen, the Joint Chiefs chairman, favors repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. He will also continue enforcing it until it’s dead.

At a breakfast this morning sponsored by The Hill, Mullen told his audience, “The most important part is to make sure it won’t impact, in a time of great stress on our military … their ability to execute the mission. We’re trying to get this right.” Moreover, DADT “is the law, and we’ll continue to comply with it until that changes.”

But if Mullen had his way, it wouldn’t change — at least not until the Pentagon finishes its study. He is, after all, vocally opposed to Congress’ current legislation.
