White House Closes Park to Stifle Protest

Shame:

Police chased reporters away from the White House and closed Lafayette Park today in response to a gay rights protest in which several service members in full uniform handcuffed themselves to the White House gate to protest “Dont Ask, Dont Tell.”People who have covered the White House for years tell me thats an extremely unusual thing to do in an area that regularly features protests.
