Video: Don't forget Jim Pietrangelo

by Jeremy Hooper





**ALSO: HRC addresses their role in all this:

"There’s been some confusion about Lt. Dan Choi’s role in the rally. As Joe Solmonese was walking to the stage, Lt. Choi asked Joe if he could have a speaking role. Joe explained that it wasn’t his sole decision to make on the spot given that there was already an established program that included Kathy Griffin, other organization and veterans. After Choi then spoke with Kathy Griffin, she agreed to bring him up on stage and speak to the crowd during her remarks.

Lt. Choi in his speech called on the crowd to march on the White House. Joe Solmonese along with Eric Alva and others felt it was important to stay and engage those at the rally in ways they can continue building the pressure needed for repeal. This does nothing to diminish the actions taken by Lt. Choi and others. This is the nature of social change and everyone has a role to play.

Your thoughts

Next question for Gibbs should be, "Is President Obama going to pardon Dan Choi and Jim Pietrangelo?" Just saw a tweet that a NJ congressman has called for Obama to pardon Choi, so it seems an appropriate question for Gibbs.
