WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says President Barack Obama agrees with a Pentagon survey that overturning the military's ban on gay service members would not disrupt unit cohesion.

Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs said Obama continues to believe that the "don't ask, don't tell" policy is divisive and should be overturned through the legislative process.

Gibbs says the repeal of "don't ask, don't tell" was discussed during Obama's meeting with bipartisan lawmakers Tuesday. Gibbs says Obama believes the ban on gays in the military can be repealed in the lame-duck session of Congress.

The White House is expected to release a statement from Obama on the Pentagon report later Tuesday.
