Though the schedule is being finalized, Gibbs said he expects a formal White House signing ceremony Wednesday morning to sign the "don't ask, don't tell" repeal. "I think there are a lot of people who are interested in attending," [White House spokesman] Gibbs said. Gibbs said White House and Pentagon lawyers are working on "implementation and legal issues" associated with lifting the ban on gays serving openly in the military.
As the Senate voted Saturday to end "don't ask, don't tell," Obama praised members for "ending a policy that undermines our national security while violating the very ideals that our brave men and women in uniform risk their lives to defend."
UPDATE: White House Press Office invites R20 to the signing ceremony 915A Wednesday at the Department of Interior. A number of bloggers and activists have been invited.
