CNN: Military makes laws 

CNN.com is running an article about the impact of the "don't ask, don't tell" policy about homosexuals serving in the military. But it isn't entirely clear about the policy itself:

The exodus of soldiers like Muller continues even as concerns grow about military troop strength, according to a new study. Some 770 people were discharged for homosexuality last year under the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy.
(Emphasis added.)

So it's the military's policy? That's funny. I always figured that Congress wrote laws while the President signed them, and that the military was obligated to follow those laws. I also thought that in this particular case, the President at the time was the one who proposed the law. But CNN says right there that it's the military's policy. I guess I was mistaken.
