I'd be cuckoo to care what the people actually affected by this policy think!

"I make that determination by retention and recruitment is at an all-time high, the highest in the history of the all-volunteer force. I get that opinion because I visit with the troops all the time. I go to Iraq, I go to Afghanistan, I run into them everywhere. And of course I don't seek out someone who is gay. Why should I? These are all men and women who are serving. Why should I, that would be nuts.

I'm not going to deal and hypotheticals as to what would come out. But the fact is that I want to review and then I will make a decision from there. I don't know what the review will say, I don't know what they will be about. And I just have to tell you that I engage in a lot of hypotheticals.

But I'm convinced that it is working and has worked well.
