According to an AP breaking news alert, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta will announce tomorrow that the DOD is ready to repeal DADT. MSNBC has more details:
Each member of the Joint Chiefs had to submit a recommendation to Secretary Panetta, indicating that they are far enough in their training to repeal DADT, and that it will not have an impact on military readiness. The next step is for President Obama to certify the repeal, which then begins a 60-day waiting period to implement the repeal — before "Don't Ask Don't Tell" is officially a thing of the past.
See, that wasn't so difficult, was it?
