ARMY FLIGHT SURGEON FACING COURT MARTIAL OVER REFUSAL TO OBEY ORDERS
by Sharon Rondeau
(Apr. 13, 2010) — The American Patriot Foundation is reporting that Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin, the Army flight surgeon who has refused to follow any orders until Barack Obama produces proof of eligibility to serve as President and Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. military, has been read his Miranda rights and informed that he would soon be “charged with serious crimes.”
On Monday, April 12, Lakin was ordered to report to Ft. Campbell, KY in preparation for what would have been his second deployment to Afghanistan. The report states that “Lakin refused to obey these orders and instead came to work yesterday morning at the Pentagon. Late yesterday afternoon he was confronted by his brigade commander.”
On March 30, 2010, Lakin had released a letter to Obama explaining his decision and why Obama needed to release proof of his eligibility to serve as President. Lakin, in his 18th year of uniformed service in the Army, also released a video message which stated that the burden of proof as to whether or not Obama is a “natural born Citizen” should be placed on Obama himself, not members of the military.
Dr. Alan Keyes, 2008 presidential candidate and plaintiff in a lawsuit currently being appealed in against Obama for the same reason, stated that Lt. Col. Lakin’s decision to refuse to obey further orders “speaks to the deep seriousness” of Obama’s flaunting of the U.S. Constitution.
Dr. James David Manning, pastor of ATLAH Ministries in Harlem, NY, urged “the patriots in America, the Tea Party people, the Republicans, conservatives, the Rush Limbaughs and others” to support Lt. Col. Lakin and Cmdr. Walter Fitzpatrick III to prevent the further erosion of rights for all American citizens and to oppose Obama’s “spirit, his name, his Marxism, and his hatred for America.” Dr. Manning also referenced the military’s initial response to Lakin’s refusal to follow orders, which was to imply that Lakin was mentally ill and suggested that he have a “brain scan.”
Dr. Manning claims he has evidence that Obama never attended Columbia University in New York but instead worked for the CIA during the years 1981-83 and that Columbia fabricated paperwork to provide a history for him. A trial will be held on the ATLAH premises on May 14-19, 2010, about which Manning has released numerous video announcements and flyers. The American Grand Jury organization will be assisting in that effort.
