This Is Done, Take Two: DADT Repeal Certification

On Dec. 22, 2010, President Barack Obama looked up after signing the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Repeal Act into law and told the audience assembled, “This is done.”

Today, after 3 p.m., Obama signed another document, also signed by Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Adm. Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff: the certification required under the act. In a statement, he said, “‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,’ will end, once and for all, in 60 days — on September 20, 2011.”
