Obama signs repeal of 'don't ask, don't tell'

Washington (CNN) –President Obama has signed the repeal of "don't ask, don't tell," a policy that banned service members from serving openly in the U.S. military, into law.

The president signed the bill repealing the 17-year ban in front an jubilant crowd of supporters at the Department of Interior. Vice President Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, were among those in attendance.
