The nation's top military official says that if Congress changes the law to allow gays and lesbians to serve openly, the Pentagon will comply.
Adm. Mike Mullen says that if the "don't ask, don't tell" law
changes, he would advise President Barack Obama on how to integrate
openly gay and lesbian military members into military operations.
The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff says he's working to
provide Obama an objective assessment of what impact, if any,
changing the law would bring to an already stretched-thin military
fighting two wars.
Obama says he wants to allow gays and lesbians to serve openly
but has taken a go-it-slow approach since taking office.
Mullen appeared Sunday on ABC's "This Week."
