Statement By Senator John McCain Regardig Passage Of The "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" Amendment By The Senate Armed Services Committee

U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) made the following statement today regarding the passage of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" amendment by the Senate Armed Services Committee:

"I deeply regret that the Senate Armed Services Committee voted today to pass the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell' amendment. This vote short circuits the ongoing Pentagon review of the policy and thereby denies our men and women in uniform a chance to have their voices heard on an important issue that affects them and their service. That is why all four Service Chiefs opposed legislative action at this time. The vote today is a de facto repeal of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell' law, and I am concerned that the men and women of our military will view this preemptive political action as a deep sign of disrespect and unwillingness to consider their views."
