DADT update

Please, please tell me this isn't what President Obama meant when he promised to repeal DADT this year in his State of the Union address.

CNN is reporting that  Defense Secretary Robert Gates (right)  is expected to announce changes today easing the Defense Department's controversial "don't ask don't tell" policy prohibiting gay men and women from serving openly in the military.

So what's the big change?  Outings by third parties may no longer be automatic grounds for initiating separation proceedings, especially if it is proven that the person making the allegation has a grudge against the military member.

OK. You can no longer assume that a soldier will be kicked out of the military if you out him/her simply because you want vengance.

Please assure me that this is just a first step.
