Lt. Dan Choi Will Not Go Silently Under Don’t Ask Don’t Tell

Here’s the anticipated sit down with First Lt. Dan Choi, the Obama administration’s first dismissal of an Arabic linguist under Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. You already know where we stand on the matter, and how detrimental the Obama White House’s refusal to act on the campaign promise to repeal the policy. As Choi tells Rachel Maddow, his dismissal is not just a personal insult, but declares members of his own unit “suffered” because there was a gay person serving with them.

If Choi resigns now, he would receive an honorable discharge.

He’s not going to do that. He plans on fighting the “charge.”
