    The date is set for the release of a controversial Pentagon Report on Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.

    Defense Secretary Robert Gates told reporters Sunday, the working group he appointed to study the impact of repealing the law that bans gays from openly serving in the U.S. Armed Forces will be available to congress and the general public on November 30th.

    Don't Ask, Don't Tells Days Numbered?

    [DGO] Don't Ask, Don't Tells Days Numbered?
    A showdown looms, for the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy.

    Gates said he created the working group so it could inform the Department of Defense of the best steps to take if the law is changed to counter potential risks.

    A federal judge ruled the policy unconstitutional last month. The case has been appealed to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in California.

    The senate is expected to vote on repealing the ban before the end of the year.
