Marine Gen. Formally Opposed To "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" Repeal Now Says It's a A Non-Issue

It's good to see that this transition has been as smooth as possible.  No unit cohesion, combat readiness or effectiveness problems.  I wonder what those still opposing the repeal will now use as an argument? 


Via AP:
Marine Gen. James F. Amos, the face of opposition in the military to lifting the ban on gays serving openly, now acknowledges his concern has proven unfounded that repeal would undermine the war effort. In fact, he says, Marines have embraced the change. 


In an Associated Press interview, Amos called the repeal in September "a non-event."


..."We attribute this success to our comprehensive pre-repeal training program, combined with the continued close monitoring and enforcement of standards by our 
military leaders at all levels," Smith said.
