Whistling in the Dark

Something tells me this isn't quite the "October surprise" Rove had in mind:
Sixty five active duty service members are officially asking Congress to end the war in Iraq -- the first time active troops have done so since U.S. invasion began in 2003.

Three of the service members will hold a press conference Wednesday explaining their decision to send "Appeals for Redress" under the Military Whistleblower Protection Act to their members of Congress. Under the act, National Guard and Reservists can send communications about any subject to their member of Congress without punishment.
How long will it be before that whistleblower protection act gets repealed? Since they already did such a thing for civilian government whistleblowers, it's rather amazing the White House didn't cover this base.
