WND: Army ‘showdown’ at eligibility corral Top doctor refuses orders, urges Obama to show birth certificate – ‘if you have 1’

UPDATE: August 28, 2010

I had an email today from Greg Hollister, USAF, Retired

While Lt Col Lakin is the first active duty officer to take on Barack Obama, the highest ranking officer to sue for his birth certificate is a retired Colonel, Greg Hollister – that would be me.

Just wanted to clarify.  I am helping Lt Col Lakin where I can and will be setting up a website entitled “Resurgent Eagle” in the next month with ideas on how to strengthen the economy, deal with Iran, Venezuela, and indirectly, China and Russia.  Part of the the gifts this this website will go to help Lt Col Lakin’s defense.
Best Regards

I’m very grateful Greg contacted me so that I could make this correction.

Lt. Col. Terry Lakin is the highest-ranking and first active-duty officer to refuse to obey orders based on President Obama’s eligibility.

“A top-ranking, highly decorated officer in the U.S. Army says he’s now refusing all orders until President Barack Obama finally releases his long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate to prove his eligibility to serve as commander in chief.

I feel I have no choice but the distasteful one of inviting my own court martial,” said Lt. Col. Terry Lakin, an active-duty flight surgeon charged with caring for Army Chief of Staff Gen. George Casey’s pilots and air crew. “The Constitution matters. The truth matters.”

“For the first time in all my years of service to our great nation, and at great peril to my career and future, I am choosing to disobey what I believe are illegal orders, including an order to deploy to Afghanistan for my second tour of duty there. I will disobey my orders to deploy because I – and I believe all servicemen and women and the American people – deserve the truth about President Obama’s constitutional eligibility to the office of the presidency and the commander in chief.

“If he is ineligible, then my orders – and indeed all orders – are illegal because all orders have their origin with the commander in chief as handed down through the chain of command.”
