Army Officer wants proof from Commander in Chief
« on: April 01, 2010, 07:20:42 PM »
I know some ppl say to just drop it.  But really.  Is it really so hard to just provide the proof and shut everyone the hell up.  If you spend all these millions to cover it up, it must be something to hide.  Kudos to this guy for standing up, but I think he is digging his own grave.

In a news release today, Army Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin said he is wiling to risk a court-martial in order if that's what it takes to determine whether or not President Barack Obama is eligible to serve as president of the United States. Not your average officer, Colonel Lakin is the lead flight surgeon charged with caring for Army Chief of Staff General George W. Casey's pilots and air crew.
The video above provides an overview of his argument.

"I am today compelled to make the distasteful choice to invite my own court martial, in pursuit of the truth about the president's eligibility under the constitution to hold office", said Colonel Lakin.

The news release cited (1) Article II, Sec. 1 of the U. S. Constitution which explicitly provides that only "natural born" citizens can serve as president and commander-in-chief and (2) Mr. Obama's continued refusal to release his original 1961 birth certificate as reasons behind Colonel Lakin reaching the conclusion that his orders are unlawful, and thus MUST be disobeyed.

Today, according to the news release, Colonel Lakin said he had informed his superiors that he cannot understand how his oath of office to "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution" does not permit him, as a military officer, to pursue proof of eligibility from his commander-in-chief. In addition, he noted that his efforts have been rebuffed with legal evasions. Given the Obama Administration's "transparency" initiative, the colonel believes many U.S. citizens are also demanding release of the original birth certificate.

Colonel Lakin's numerous awards and decorations include the Army Flight Surgeon's Badge, Combat Medical Badge, the Bronze Service Medal, the Meritorious Service Medal, the Army Commendation Medal with three Oak Leaf Clusters, the Army Achievement Medal with two Oak Leaf Clusters, the National Defense Service Medal with Bronze Service Star, the Armed Forced Expedition Medal, the Army Reserve Component Achievement Medal, the Army Service Ribbon, the Overseas Service Ribbon and the NATO service medal.

The American Patriot Foundation, a non-profit group incorporated in 2003 to foster appreciation and respect for the U.S. Constitution, has set up a legal defense fund and will provide Colonel Lakin with a top-flight defense team about which details are available on the foundation's SafeguardOurConstitution.com.

Hat's off to this guy for having the spine to take on this effort.

I don't understand it either.  My children have to show their birth certificates to play in the local soccer league.  The least the President can do is show his.

Sounds like a silly reason to throw away a nice career, but one man's loss is another man's gain.
