Prelims on DOD DADT survey suggest most servicemembers don't object to open gays in the military

Richard Engel at NBC has found (as reported by Brian Williams on Oct. 28) that most of the 100000 or so servicemembers who answered the survey on repealing “don’t ask don’t tell” indicated that they do not object to serving along openly gay servicemembers. A few, however, said they did object and might leave or might not have enlisted.

Ed O’Keefe has an Oct. 29 story and a “Federal Eye” Oct. 28 blog entry on the story at The Washington Post here.

Earlier, gay activists had been critical of the survey as introducing bias.
