Senate committee announces DADT study hearings

with one comment

The Senate Armed Services Committee announced Wednesday that it will hold hearings next week on the Pentagon study concerning Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.

The Pentagon’s study on how to best implement the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell will be out Tuesday, November 30, and the Senate Armed Services Committee announced it will hold two days of hearings on that report beginning Thursday, December 2.

The back-to-back hearings will include an all-star line-up of the military’s highest-ranking officials to discuss the report’s findings. Day One will lead off with Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Mike Mullen, and the two co-chairmen of the study group – General Carter Ham and the Pentagon’s chief lawyer, Jeh Johnson.

Day Two –Friday, December 3—will showcase three generals and one admiral who head up each of the four branches of the military–plus the vice-chair of the Joint Chiefs. Both days are almost certain to provoke tough questioning from Senator John McCain who has taken a lead in opposing repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.

The hearings begin at 9 a.m. each day.
