"I'm not sure that [soldiers on the ground in the field care one way or the other if their comrade in arms are gay or lesbian.]
You heard Gen. Powell who was the chairman when [Don't Ask, Don't Tell] was implemented, had a big hand in that, who said that yes, indeed, the earth has revolved around the sun a number of times since that period 15 months ago. You have heard a variety of anecdotal input. We have experienced certainly in the CIA and the FBI -- I know, I served, in fact, in combat with individuals who were gay and who were lesbian in combat situations.
Frankly, you know, over time you said, hey, how's this guy shooting or how is her analysis or what have you?"– general david petraeus
