This raw video shot at the Times Square military recruiting office earlier today shows USMC Lt Dan Choi gain admittance to the office and enlist in the US Army, after having been discharged under DADT.

The Pentagon spent $50,000 of our money to buy up the first edition of “Operation Dark Heart” by Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer and destroy every copy. The second printing has lots of words blacked out.
