The dropped it because they don’t want Choi’s arguments getting a VERY PUBLIC and OFFICIAL hearing!

Now taking bets: Lt. Dan Choi will again chain himself to the White House fence in 2 weeks or sooner.
He’s tenacious, and I doubt he’ll let this go. He’ll do it again.

I hope he does. I hope it does it tomorrow. I applaud him and Capt. Pietrangelo for their courage.

I also hope news crews are there, and I hope that this time they get to film the whole thing and put it all over television.
