Lt. Dan Choi & Capt. Jim Pietrangelo: Dignity Fast

 


Lt. Dan Choi and Capt. Jim Pietrangelo: Dignity Fast

 
 
In response to the empty repeal of DADT, Lt. Dan Choi and Capt. Jim Pietrangelo have begun a Dignity Fast.


Note:  The "repeal" of DADT isn't a repeal at all.  They've taken out the anti-discrimination language, they have not placed a schedule on implementation and they have added a final approval by Gates and Mullen.  So this is an empty repeal. It doesn't stop discharges and gives full power for repeal back to the Pentagon. The Senate could approve it, Obama could sign it and potentially nothing could happen.  If the Pentagon decided that their "study" concluded that LGBT people should be banned entirely, then they have the authority to do that.
