Don't ask...Don't Tell

"You shouldn't use your power to in any way influence a discussion or evaluation of the issue," Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions warned Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and Chair of the Joint Chiefs Micheal Mullen during a hearing to tread lightly during the evaluation phase of DADT. Mullens responded, "For me this is not about command influence, this is about leadership." Gates said, "we can't possibly evaluate the impact on unit cohesion, on morale, on retention, on recruiting unless we encourage people to tell us exactly what they think."
