One of the key architects of the military’s ban on openly gay soliders — otherwise known as “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” — now says it’s “probably time” to revisit the policy.
Former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, whose Senate hearings in 1993 helped sway public opinion behind the gay ban, said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday that it’s time to take another look. Nunn was a key advisor to President Obama during the transition and was often mentioned as a possible vice presidential pick.
“The policy we have now … is the least worst policy we could have had 15 years ago, but it is probably time to take another look at it. I would go very carefully and prudently,” Nunn says on the show.
