The DADT Compromise: Pro and Con

This is full audio from interviews on the show today the "don't ask, don't tell" repeal compromise. Aaron Belkin of the Palm Center at the University of California, Santa Barbara, wrote a piece fully supporting the compromise in Congress and criticizing some who had reservations.

Kip Williams of GetEqual articulated the group's view that that, though it doesn't oppose moving forward with the vote on the DADT compromise, it is not acceptable and doesn't lay out a timeline for when the discharges stop. Kip had protested president Obama last night at a Barbara Boxer fundraiser in San Francisco and was arrested for heckling the president.
