Obama Consults Advisers On Military Gay Ban

The White House says President Barack Obama is looking into ways to repeal a ban on gays serving openly in the military.

The administration isn't saying how soon that might happen. The statement was released in response to legislation reintroduced in the House yesterday aimed at lifting the ban.

The move lets Obama say he's making good on a campaign promise to reverse the law, but doesn't lock him into doing that any time soon. The statement seems to leave enough wiggle room to keep the hot-button issue from getting in the way of Obama's foreign policy agenda.
