We should not be punishing patriotic Americans who have stepped forward to serve the country," Mr Obama said.

"We should be celebrating their willingness to step forward and show such courage."

Mr Obama did not give a timetable for repeal of the policy, passed by Congress in 1993, under which thousands of service members have been discharged.

Repeated, because this stood out to me:

Mr Obama did not give a timetable for repeal of the policy

...So don't get too excited, yet.

But in the video clip, he did say that legislation has been introduced in the house to end DADT.
