President Obama has directed the U. S. Justice Department to file an extraordinary motion to get a lawsuit filed by the Log Cabin republicans against "Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell" thrown out of court. The 11th-hour move for interlocutory appeal, which seeks to stay proceedings and block discovery, was surprisingly formulated at the same time that President Obama was reassuring LGBT activists that he still firmly opposes the ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ law at the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) annual dinner late last month in Washington, DC.
