    Judge removes 'birther' elements from Army doc's court martial

    (CNN) -- A judge on Thursday denied a request for President Barack Obama to testify at a court martial for a U.S. Army flight surgeon who refused to deploy to Afghanistan until he saw proof that Obama was born in the United States.


    The judge, Army Col. Denise Lind, said any evidence or witnesses related to Obama's citizenship is irrelevant to the charges against Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin, who has 17 years of service in the U.S. military.
    Good, because the issue here is that Col. Lakin refused to obey a lawful order and deploy. Very simple issue, very simple case, and hopefully a very simple punishment of prison and dishonorable discharge.

    Once more - Where is proof of your birth, Obama? It's right here:

    I hope the military throws the book at him. With 17 years of service in the military he should know better than to try to use some wacko conspiracy bull**** to get out of deploying and he should have been setting an example for all of those he outranks.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I'm happy to see he's getting court-martial. Hopefully the jury will burn him. I'm surprised though as higher ups usually get a slap on the wrist.

    Some of these old-timers sure seem to be terrified of going to Afghanistan; that psycho who shot all the people at Ft Hood was having the same issue, facing an Afghanistan deployment and desperate to get out of it.
    It's strange, he claimed he didn't have any problem going to Iraq, just didn't want to go to Afghanistan.
    At the peak of the fighting in Iraq in 2007, the casualty rate was much higher than it currently is in Afghanistan.
    I wonder what these guys are so scared of? Discomfort? Primitive conditions?

    Maybe it's because of the media attention.

    The soldiers in both cases are POGs(pronounced pōg, an acronym for persons other than grunt, not a combat soldier,specifically not a infantry soldier. Civilians in soldiers clothing). They are not the ones doing patrols, on guard duty, heck they are such pogs they make regular pogs the line mechanics, scouts, not look like pogs. So you are probably right about them worrying about living in primitive living conditions or at least not having all their luxuries of home.

    Probably that and the fact he tried to get out of service with a conspiracy theory.

    I do hope you realize that doesn't prove Obama was born in Hawaii.

    In fact that 'official' looking document isn't even enough to get a passport.

    I am looking at the passport website and it says a birth certificate is valid proof of citizenship, which is one of the things needed to get a passport. And you are right a birth certificate alone is not enough to get a passport. You also need primary identification such as previously issued undamaged passport, Naturalization certificate, Valid Driver's license, government ID(city,state or federal) or military ID. So if Obama used his birth certificate in combination with government ID he could get a pass port. So saying "that 'official' looking document isn't even enough to get a passport" does not any shape or form prove his birth certificate is fake or useless.

    It was enough for Governor Linda Lingle, and she is a Republican.

    Also Obama's birth is documented in 2 Hawaiian Newspapers, in which the announcements were printed the very day he was born.

    Obama is a citizen. Period. Everything else is just conspiracy theories which deserve their place alongside Bigfoot, invaders from outer space, and Bush doing the World Trade Center.
