An Army doctor who refused deployment to Afghanistan because he questioned whether President Obama was born in the United States pleaded guilty today for failing to obey orders but pleaded not guilty to the count of missing a flight he needed to be on.
Lt. Col. Terry Lakin is among the so-called “birthers,” who continue to question whether Obama was born in the United States and thereby eligible for the presidency. They argue that they have yet to see Obama’s original, signed birth certificate, even though the president released a copy during his campaign.
Lakin was set to deploy from Fort Campbell, Ky., in April, for his second tour of duty, but he never showed up.
In a YouTube video, the Colorado native admitted that he invited his own court martial because he won’t obey what he believes are “illegal orders” from a president who hasn’t presented proof that he is a natural born U.S. citizen.
