The Senate Armed Services Committee will hear testimony regarding a Pentagon study on the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy on Dec. 2 and 3.
According to the Armed Services Committee website, the session will feature the full committee.
Scheduled to testify on Dec. 2 are Defense Secretary Robert Gates, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mike Mullen and General Carter Ham (co-chair of the Review Working Group).
The heads of each branch of the military — Gen. George W. Casey, Jr., Chief of Staff of the Army; Adm. Gary Roughead, Chief of Naval Operations; Gen. James F. Amos, Commandant of the Marine Corps and Gen. Norton A. Schwartz, Chief of Staff of the Air Force — will testify the following day (Dec. 3).
The Senate Armed Services Committee is chaired by Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.). The ranking Republican on the committee is Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) who has publicly threatened a filibuster of the repeal.
The Pentagon is scheduled to release its report on DADT Nov. 30, giving committee members just two days to review the findings of the year-long study.
Both days’ hearings are scheduled for 9 a.m.
