Gen. David Petraeus testified before the Senate this morning that it is time to rethink the Don’t ask, don’t tell policy.
He did not say he thought it was time to change it, just rethink it. He said he wanted to see a report being prepared by Defense Secretary Robert Gates and if changing it would hurt recruiting or retention. Not sure if he thought that not kicking thousands of people out of the armed forces would actually help retention.
Petraeus is the commander leading the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
