Now that the DADT is Done
The question remains: How will the repeal be implemented? Mac Owens
explains that repeal should be implemented in a way that does as little to compromise military readiness as is possible under the circumstances--stressing, again, that the purpose of the military as a fighting machine ought to be the guiding principle whenever making decisions about it. Robert Gates shares this view and has indicated that he make take some time before certifying the change. But Owens worries that Gates may soon depart the administration and be replaced with someone who, like Obama, is eager to act for political reasons. " And this is the great danger: that the repeal will be expedited for political reasons no matter the impact on the military."
