Choi and Pietrangelo Arrested Again

Lt. Dan Choi and Capt. Jim Pietrangelo, and four others were arrested today after handcuffing themselves to the White House fence.

During the protest Choi said:

"We call on our commander in chief, the president of the United States to take bold action, to show firm resolve and real leadership on his promise to repeal 'don’t ask, don’t tell.' To make good on that promise, he has an opportunity to transmit to Congress for the defense authorization bill repeal language."

Seems pretty straight-forward to me. And still, Obama wonders why we're hollering.

Keep on hollering. Lt. Dan Choi, Capt. Jim Pietrangelo, Petty Officer Autumn Sandeen, Corporal Evelyn Thomas, Cadet Mara Boyd, Petty Officer Larry Whitt, keep hollering. It's the only way the White House will hear us.
