Wes Clark on ‘Don’t Ask don’t tell’

January 25, 2004

MR. RUSSERT: You are a former military general, as the world knows. This was the cover of The Advocate magazine, a magazine for gay readers. If you became president, would you issue an executive order overruling “Don’t ask, don’t tell” policy in the military?

GEN. CLARK: No. What I would do is go to the leaders of the armed forces and ask them to review the policy and come back and provide, to my satisfaction, a policy that is fair and that allows qualified people to serve. I don’t believe the United States armed forces should be the last institution in America that discriminates on the basis of sexual orientation.
