'Don't ask, don't tell' report: Little risk to repeal law

Don't Ask, Don't Tell
On Nov. 15, 2010, Lt. Dan Choi, center, and others handcuffed themselves to the White House fence to push President Obama to keep his promise to repeal the "don't ask, don't tell" ban on gays openly serving in the military. (Pablo Martinez Monsivais/Associated Press)

The official "don't ask, don't tell" report won't be out until 2:30 p.m., but The Post's Ed O'Keefe and Craig Whitlock have a leaked copy. They write:

According to a survey sent to 400,000 service members, 69 percent of those responding reported that they had served with someone in their unit who they believed to be gay or lesbian. Of those who did, 92 percent stated that their unit's ability to work together was very good, good, or neither good nor poor, according to the sources.
