Colin Powell Calls For Ending Don't Ask Don't Tell

Former Secretary of State Collin Powell called for a review of Don't Ask Don't Tell on CNN's "State of The Union" Sunday show. Getting Colin Powell to step out on this issue is important based on his participation during the Clinton administration when the law was crafted.

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell said on Sunday that the "Don't Ask Don't Tell" policy he helped craft should be revisited, but he would not go so far as to call for a full repeal of the compromise.

"The policy and the law that came about in 1993 I think was correct for the time," Powell said in an appearance on CNN's "State of the Union." "Sixteen years have now gone by, and I think a lot has changed with respect to attitudes within our country. And therefore, I think this is a policy and a law that should be reviewed."
