Obama Administration seeks to keep ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ in force
BREAKING AP 12:01 PM ET:
“WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration has asked a federal appeals court to immediately suspend a judge’s ruling that overturned the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy on gays.
“The administration says it wants the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit in San Francisco to take action on Wednesday while the federal government prepares its appeal of the ruling against “don’t ask, don’t tell.”
“President Barack Obama has said he supports getting rid of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, but the Justice Department also typically defends acts of Congress in the courts.”
