VIDEO: Dick Cheney endorses 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' repeal
DC. Cheney defends the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," stating he believes the country has "moved on".
Deferring to the counsel of members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff who have argued for the repeal of the separate-but-not-quite-equal rules for gay, lesbian and bisexual soldiers, Cheney said on ABC News' "This Week": "When the Chiefs come forward and say, 'We think we can do it,' then that strikes me that it's time to reconsider the policy."
Cheney explained that, "Twenty years ago the military was a strong advocate of Don't Ask Don't Tell when I was the Secretary of Defense. I think things have changed significantly since then."
