SANTA BARBARA, CA, — Today, the Palm Center released a statement in response to the White House statement regarding current legislative efforts to repeal the “don’t ask, don’t tell” law in Congress.

“The President’s actions today keeps his promise to lift the ban by establishing the terms on which ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ will be dismantled,” stated Aaron Belkin, Palm Center Director. “For the past seventeen years, every expert who has studied this policy has emphasized that dismantling it would require leadership.
