Obama: American military fights 'on my behalf'

In an interview with ABC News, Barack Obama framed his support for gay marriage as a way of supporting American soldiers who, he claims, are fighting on his behalf.

"When I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that Don't Ask Don't Tell is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point I've just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married," Obama tells ABC News.
