Good or Bad News on DADT Repeal

This video can tell us two things, and I am not sure which.   That it is good news that the commandant and senior non-commissioned officer are behind the repeal of DADT?  Or that it is bad news because such a video is necessary?  That they have to remind their Marines that the US is a country of laws and that the Marines must follow the civilian decisions?

Overall, I guess this is good news, but I just don't feel comfortable that such an appeal seems to be necessary.  On the other hand, the commandant opposed the decision when it was being debated, so his backing of the decision now shows that he can move ahead.
