We all know that Obama's father was a Kenyan, not a US citizen, and therefore a British subject.

The Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) 809.ART.90 (20), makes it clear that military personnel need to obey the "lawful command of his superior officer," 891.ART.91 (2), the "lawful order of a warrant officer", 892.ART.92 (1) the "lawful general order", 892.ART.92 (2) "lawful order". In each case, military personnel have an obligation and a duty to only obey Lawful orders and indeed have an obligation to disobey Unlawful orders, including orders by the president that do not comply with the UCMJ. The moral and legal obligation is to the U.S. Constitution and not to those who would issue unlawful orders, especially if those orders are in direct violation of the Constitution and the UCMJ.

The order for Terry Lakin to deploy to Afghanistan originated with Obama, who as Commander In Chief of US armed forces made the decision to commit additional troops and personnel to the Afghanistan conflict. If Lakin can show that the order was unlawful, then he not only had a right to disobey, but an obligation to disobey the order. And if Obama is not qualified under the US Constitution to be President, then any order issued by Obama is unlawful. It doesn't matter that Lakin's direct superior officer issued the order to Lakin. What matters is whether or not the order was a lawful one, and to determine that the court must examine the lawful authority of the chain of command to the point of the order's origin. Therefore, the question of Obama's eligibility to hold the office of President is very relevant, and central to Terry Lakin's case. The military court is attempting to block Lakin's right to discovery of items and witnesses requested by him that could prove his case. If they succeed in refusing discovery to Lakin, then this case should go to the Supreme Court on appeal. You have to admit that this whole matter could easily and quickly be resolved if Obama's original long form birth certificate is released, and we must continue to question why Obama has spent nearly two million dollars so far to avoid releasing that, and other relevant documentation. And, of course, even if such a certificate could prove that Obama was born in the US, his eligibility could still be questioned due to the fact that he would be a dual US/British citizen with no definite loyalty to either country. The framers of the Constitution made it clear that the President's loyalty to the United States should be unquestionable.
