Steve Kagen joins group seeking Don't Ask Don't Tell data

Steve Kagen signed a letter by congressman Jim Moran (D-VA) to the Secretary of Defense seeking data on the military's Don't Ask Don't Tell policy.

Though the request is only for data, it is clear from the letter that the ultimate goal is an end to the policy:
We write yoday with regards to the current prohibition on openly gay and lesbian service members in the military, commonly known as “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (DADT)....

Through these monthly updates, Congress and the public will get a clearer picture of the continued costs and damage to our national security inflicted by this policy.
Moran's press release states explicitly that he seeks repeal of DADT.
