Army Officer Refuses Deployment, Says Obama is 'Illegal'

Yup...we're still doing this.

Lt. Col. Terry Lakin loves America and will defend her until the end, unless he questions the legitimacy of the Commander-In-Chief, which he does. And here we go again...

Lakin refused to report to Fort Campbell, Ky., for deployment and instead showed up at the Pentagon, where he was told that he would face a court martial. His Pentagon building pass and government laptop computer were seized.

The 18-year Army veteran is under investigation for failure to report for deployment and for displaying conduct unbecoming an officer, the Associate Press reported.

Larkin is a "birther," a person who believes Obama is not native-born, and therefore is ineligible to be president. Hawaii officials have repeatedly issued statements that Obama was born in the state, and that the Health Department holds a copy of his original birth certificate. A copy of the document has been made available on the Internet.

What kills the Buzz is that there are plenty of legitimate arguments that could be made against the Obama presidency, but clowns like this chose to go this way. Oh, and just in case you think this is mere fringe lunacy, please be aware that the Arizona House is drafting legislation to demand the President of the United States of America verify he's a citizen of this country.
