Robert Gates issues implied warning to John McCain (SFGate)
Secretary of Defense Robert Gates has just issued a thinly veiled warning to GOP opponents, led by Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., of repeal of the Don't Ask, Don't Tell ban on gays in the military: if you don't repeal the law now, the courts inevitably will, causing much more disruption in the force.
McCain spokesperson Brooke Buchanan said, "Senator McCain and his staff are currently in the process of carefully reviewing the Pentagon's report regarding the repeal of the 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell'' law."
Gates noted that the repeal language requires certification by President Obama and the Pentagon that the military is ready for implementation, adding there will also be no dawdling because the president will be watching. The Pentagon chiefs met with President Obama yesterday.
