Army Colonel’s Challenge to Obama’s Constitutional Legitimacy Receives a Boost
A medical doctor, LTC Lakin points to the constitutional requirement that a president has to be “a natural born citizen,” something the colonel does not believe Mr. Obama has demonstrated.
Actually inviting a court martial, Lieutenant Colonel Lakin deliberately failed to appear as ordered to Fort Campbell, Kentucky, where his unit was readying to deploy to Afghanistan. Reassigned by the Army to the Pentagon while his court martial has been proceeding, he awaits a trial that will begin on October 13th at Fort Meade in northern Virginia. He has been serving at Walter Reed Army Medical Center
On August 31st, Retired Air Force Lieutenant General Thomas McInerney sent a sworn affidavit to the Court Martial supporting Lakin’s motions that seek the president’s birth and school records. Not alone in backing Lakin, he is the highest ranking military officer to render his support for the recalcitrant lieutenant colonel.
