Dark Light

Why would the transparent White House try to block reporter access to a news event?

The police assigned to the White House literally told the media to leave today as six military vets were protesting the President’s inaction on Don’t Ask Don’t Tell by handcuffing themselves to the White House gates. The mainstream reporters were not pleased, as shown in this video where one reporter, I believe, called the White House to complain.

Here’s the story on the protest.

Six people in military uniforms, including Lt. Dan Choi, handcuffed themselves to the North Lawn fence of the White House today to protest the fact that the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy has not been repealed.

A group called GetEQUAL, which appears to have organized today’s action, posted a statement calling on President Obama to repeal the policy immediately through action connected to the upcoming Defense Authorization Bill.

Pressure from the left.
