Here’s the “guidance” from Clifford J. Stanley, the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness, on how the Department of Defense is handling the fact that “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” isn’t in effect right now. It isn’t. And, the Department of Defense doesn’t want to be in contempt of Court. Although, it’s pretty clear, Gates and his people have contempt for the ruling that found DADT unconstitutional.
The key thing, as SLDN and SU have been saying is: Gay and lesbian servicemembers should NOT come out.
