Pentagon Spokesman: We're On Track To Deliver Our DADT Study On December 1st

"This report is very important to us doing this smartly." Also: "I'm not prepared at this time to tell you what action we may take upon receipt of the report."

UPDATE: The Wonk Room's Igor Volsky weighs in.

Pentagon Spokesperson Geoff Morrell reiterated the importance of the department’s working group review of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell during a briefing yesterday, but stopped short of calling on Congress to move quickly towards ending the ban. In discussing priorities for the lame duck session of Congress, Morrell said that “we are clearly urging Congressional action, echoing the President on [ratifying the] START treaty,” but Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Admiral Mike Mullen “want a study to take place in advance of that repeal to educate us how to deal” with repeal.
