Whitehouse.gov Reinserts Call to ‘Repeal’ Don’t Ask Don’t Tell

Yesterday afternoon, we noted our handy Changetracker tool had spotted some interesting changes on Whitehouse.gov. In particular, the call to “repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” had been replaced with softer language saying, President Obama "supports changing Don't Ask Don't Tell in a sensible way that strengthens our armed forces and our national security."

Well, last night the White House reinserted language saying President Obama supports the “repeal” of Don't Ask Don't Tell. The new phrasing: "He supports repealing Don't Ask Don't Tell in a sensible way that strengthens our armed forces and national security."
