By Bryan Bender
WASHINGTON - The Obama administration is telling the Pentagon and
gay-rights advocates that it will have to study the implications for
national security and enlist more support in Congress before trying to
overturn the so-called "don't ask, don't tell" law and allow gays to serve
openly in the military, according to people involved in the discussions.
