Defense Secretary Robert Gates said yesterday he is looking to make the "Don't Ask Don't Tell" policy that forbids gays from serving openly in the military "more humane" until the Clinton-era ban is repealed.

Some military leaders say the policy should not be repealed if it would put more strain on an already overstretched military.

President Obama, meanwhile, continues to be criticized by gay rights activists for not acting on a campaign promise to end the policy.

So tonight, we ask you: What should happen to the "Don't Ask Don't Tell" policy?

Tell us what you think.
