After six vets chained themselves to the White House fence to protest what they feel is the president's slow movement on repealing the military's "Don't Ask Don't Tell" policy police closed Lafayette Park and chased away the media that was covering the event.
Protests are nothing new at the White House but to see them coming from Obama's allies is a bit startling especially when the protesters start chaining themselves to the fence. But even more suprising is the banning of the media from covering the event. The protest would have made the evening news and made the administration squirm a bit, but now they have to explain why the media couldn't cover the story from a public park and how this isn't about free speech. The answer if we get one should be illuminating.
