Powell, Former Army Sec'y on Gay Military Ban

There are two interviews in this clip, one with Colin Powell by Rachel Maddow and one with former Army Secretary Clifford Alexander by Andrea Mitchell. Powell does the political thing, and is a bit disingenuous about his role under Bill Clinton, though he does say he now would support lifting DADT if the Congress should decide to do so. Alexander is just astounding, really taking on the band homophobia in a powerful way. Watch the clip and listen to what he has to say.
