When all else fails blame the black guy, it's what they do, it's who they are:
Former President Bill Clinton defended signing "don't ask, don't tell" policy into law in an interview with CBS's Katie Couric on Tuesday, saying that Colin Powell, who was chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the time, told him the policy would be more lax than it turned out to be.
"Now, when Colin Powell sold me on 'don't ask, don't tell,' here's what he said it would be: Gay service members would never get in trouble for going to gay bars, marching in gay rights parades, as long as they weren't in uniform. That was what they were promised. That's a very different 'don't ask, don't tell' than we got," he said.
Clinton also said he agreed to the policy because otherwise Congress would have passed an absolute ban on gays in the military.
