No, I'd say he is sacrificing his career and all the benefits (retirement etc) for something he truly believes and wants it to be made "front page".

I wouldn't sacrifice all that he is prepared to give up but that's just me. No matter if they elected a monkey to the oval office.

Difficult to get my head around this one. I wonder what he would do if they showed him irrefutable proof.

Also, Bruce Lee was born in the US but to elect him president (if he would have lived long enough that is) would be ludicrous. He was born in San Fran and immediately went back to China, which is more than likely the same situation for Obama except that he went back to Kenya to learn the socialist idealogy.

Be interesting to see where this ends up.

Read the article again---his COMMANDING OFFICER won the Medal of Honor while serving in Viet Nam...not Lt. Col. Lakin, the doctor

after actually reading the article it appears to be the latter. way to go Lt. Col. Pussbag (atleast he didnt shoot up Ft. Hood).

I'm glad you see humor in that, tony. It's a real gasser.

i most certainly wasnt joking, and was dead sirius.

is that example of protesting obama a bit too real for a "right wing extremist"?

the dude is hiding his labia behind "politics". atleast he isnt taking his confusion and idiocy out on others. does that rephrasal make you feel warm and fuzzy inside with political correctness?

i hide my labia with a sock, some velcro, and some sticky tape. it itches a lot, but other than that, it is respectable.

The difference Tony,

Is that this guy still shows up for work everyday. He has been changed over to Walter Reed medical center, but he stll shows up everyday to work. He is perfectly within his right, if he thinks an order is illegal, to reject it.

Its the same law that Nuremberg and Tokyo war crime trials were dependent on to convict many secondary actors in the wars. It is the same law the Calley was originally convicted on in My Lai.

While this doesn't even come close to rising to that level, the law ITSELF is right, and if this guy feels that the orders are illegal, he is BOUND to not follow them.

Such is the weird twists of law.

not to be rude, but what is it with the reading comprehension and this article?

Quote:
Lakin refused to report to Fort Campbell, Ky., for deployment to Afghanistan, but instead went to the Pentagon. There on Monday he was confronted by his brigade commander, Col. Gordon Roberts, and informed he could face court martial,
he does not show up to work every day, he instead goes to the pentagon and gets threatened with a freaking court marshall from his COMMANDER col. roberts (who does show up to work every day at walter reed)

he is perfectly within his right to get a boot in his ass.

thats the only difference i see.

Quote:
his Pentagon building pass and government laptop computer were seized.
looks like he wont be playing hookey and taking a field trip to the pentagon any time soon.

No, he showed up to his PREVIOUS job because he believed the orders to his CURRENT job were illegal and thus, there were no orders.

Otherwise, he would have been charged with being AWOL, which is was not. (or whatever they call it today).

And let's remember, this isn't some 20 year old afraid of war. This is a MOH winner from Vietnam.

The Medal of Honor winner was Roberts (the Commanding Officer) not Lt. Col. Lakin, the doctor who refused his orders

Quote:
WASHINGTON - The Army may be forced to court-martial a lieutenant colonel who refused to deploy to Afghanistan because he considers orders from President Barack Obama to be illegal, military officials told NBC News on Tuesday.

Army doctor Lt. Col. Terry Lakin believes Obama does not meet the constitutional requirements to be president and commander-in-chief because Lakin believes the president was not born in the United States. A video with statements from Lakin on the subject was released by the right-wing American Patriot Foundation.

Lakin refused to report to Fort Campbell, Ky., for deployment to Afghanistan, but instead went to the Pentagon. There on Monday he was confronted by his brigade commander, Col. Gordon Roberts, and informed he could face court martial, and his Pentagon building pass and government laptop computer were seized.

Roberts is the commander of the medical brigade out of Walter Reed. He is the only active-duty Medal of Honor winner in the military. He received the honor for action in Vietnam.
