    How does lifting the ban on "don't ask, don't tell" defined as consistent with best American values?

    According Sen. J. Lieberman, repealing the DADT is consistent with American values. What the hell does that mean? Is he speaking for himself or for others? Supporting immorality is sound more like ancient Babylonian wicked values.

    Having it in the first place was breaching basic human values, which are not dictated by mere sectarian considerations.
    It is a good thing that it was done away with.
    Let all good minded people pray that the rest of the outdated legally enshrined prejudices are swept away soon as well.

    I'm not sure how repealing "don't ask don't tell" supports immorality. Whatever you may feel about homosexuality, do you really want to have some kind of a morality test that people must pass in order to serve in the military? If we had a test like this, it might be difficult to find enough people "qualified" to serve. The fact that an overwhelming majority of people in the military have no problem with homosexuals serving indicates how stupid the "don't ask don't tell" policy really is. The only reason that many conservative legislators continue supporting it is to pander to socially conservative voters.

    On what grounds is being gay or allowing openly gay people to serve in the military "immoral"?

    Equality under the law is a civil right.  Don't ask, don't tell is another failed resurrection of "separate but equal."  Whether or not you consider homosexuality immoral is irrelevant; many think divorce is an abomination, yet divorcees are allowed in the military.  Civil rights are in place to ensure equality for the minority even when the majority would rather see it otherwise.  That is consistent with American values.
