A setback today for proponents of gays serving openly in the military: This evening a federal appeals court ruled that the Pentagon could continue enforcing the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" law, which was briefly struck down by a judge in California last week. Army Lt. Dan Choi, an Iraq War vet discharged after publicly outing himself, was the first to take advantage of THAT decision by re-enlisting this week. After the new ruling, his application status is unclear, but tonight we ask you: Should gays — including proven soldiers like Lt. Choi – be allowed to serve in the U.S. military?
