Gibbs: No Stop Order On DADT
Yesterday White House press secretary said there will be no stop order on DADT because the administration wants a "durable legislative solution." Americablog points us to tomorrow's "March On The White House" by the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network. Facebook page here.
Like those who drew a line in the sand 40 years ago at the Stonewall Inn in New York City, we're standing up to demand action. It's past time for these discriminatory discharges to end. After 16 years of this nonsensical law, it's critical that President Obama and Congress act to kill "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." Together, marching, we have a real opportunity to deliver a powerful message to the White House, to Congress, and to the American people -- and to let our service members know they have not been forgotten. Please sign up now to join us on Saturday: http://www.sldn.org/265. We'll meet in Farragut Square (17th and K St. NW) at 2 p.m. and march from there. We hope to see you on Saturday!
