Apparently Gates will focus particularly on "witch-hunt" situations where a servicemember is "outed" by a third party. His changes will not help someone like Dan Choi, who voluntarily outed himself.

Time Magazine has an article by Mark Thompson "Enforcing 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell': Don't Bother", link here, indicating that Gates's actions will blunt some of the more vocal naysayers.
