Petraeus to support overturning 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell'

Gen. David Petraeus has indicated Sunday that he would support overturning the 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' policy present in the military.

Petraeus said that it matters very little to soliders whether or not they serve with gay or lesbian military members, Politico said.

The policy, which forbids military members from being open about being gay, has been under review by lawmakers and high-ranking military officials, the Houston Chronicle said.

Politico reports that Petraeus believes it comes more down to the mission than sexual identity. "Frankly, over time we said, 'Hey how is this guy's shooting, or how is her analysis, or what have you?'"
