From The Rachel Maddow show, "Today a military board in Syracuse, New York recommended firing Lt. Dan Choi, even though every witness on both sides said he was an asset to the unit."

Lt. Choi vowed to continue the fight even if it means appealing his case all the way to the Secretary of Defense or the Supreme Court if necessary. Good for him. The President needs to suspend these firings instead of waiting for the Congress to act if he's serious about the issue of gay rights.
