Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) says there IS a plan to repeal DADT

According to Rachel Maddow’s twitter link to The Advocate, Don’t Ask Don’t Tell will be repealed in next year’s Department of Defense authorization bill next year (Because we have to wait for legislative action?) . Rep. Frank claims that has been the plan all along (Then why keep it a secret?).

Please don’t fail to forget that this exchange happened in almost a year ago (link):

A Michigan resident posted a question on the transition team website asking if Obama intends to end the 15-year-old rule.

“Is the new administration going to get rid of the ‘don’t ask don’t tell’ policy?” he asked.

Spokesman Robert Gibbs replied, “[Y]ou don’t hear a politician give a one-word answer much, but it’s yes.”
