General In Charge Of DADT Repeal: End Of Policy Will Be ‘Pretty Inconsequential’

Gen. Carter Ham, who co-chaired the Pentagon’s study group examining the consequences of repealing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, said today that lifting the ban against open service is likely to prove “pretty inconsequential.” Ham told the Associated Press that conservative groups may still speak out in support of the policy, but those inside the military will adopt a business-as-usual attitude. DADT will officially end on Sept. 20.
