Gates: DADT repeal could be implemented by September

Via AP:

Gates says he sees no roadblock to repeal of gay ban:
More than a million U.S. troops have been trained on the new law that repealed the 17-year-old ban on gays serving openly in the armed services, and Gates said the instruction has gone well.

“I think people are pretty satisfied with the way this process is going forward,” he said. “I think people have been mildly and pleasantly surprised at the lack of pushback in the training.”

If Gates approves the certification before he leaves office, the repeal could be fully implemented in September.
