Exum on those anti-gay protesters protected by the recent SupCo decision

My CNAS colleague Andrew Exum gives his bottom line on this mess: "As horrified as I am by the rhetoric of the Westboro Baptist Church, I am incredibly proud to have served in uniform to defend a remarkable document that protects even — no, especially — the most unpopular speech." Well said, sir.
