Someone describing himself as Lt. Col Terry Lakin, an Army physician, states in a YouTube video that he is refusing his second deployment to Afghanistan to force the President to prove his eligibility. Lakin appears to be saying that the 1961 birth certificate with the attendant’s signature is sufficient for him.
I feel sorry for Lakin if his story is true, because he has been deluded about the validity of the documentation candidate Obama provided freely way back in June of 2008. An Army physician ought to know better, I supposed and perhaps I shouldn’t see him as a victim of the misinformation campaign, led by the smear web sites we all know.
He comes across as sensible and sincere, just woefully misinformed. I would just ask him, if he has been in the military for 13 years, why it started being concerned about documentation for Obama, and not for others before him?
We’ll be watching to see if any litigation results.
