“I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.”
That is the oath of office I took when I enlisted in the Navy and every time I re-enlisted, as well as the oath millions of other Americans who wore a uniform took. Apparently, Lt. Col. Terry Lakin, an active-duty Army surgeon is disregarding it. Lakin is being hailed as a hero by the right for disregarding his oath of office and announced he intends to disobey all orders from his commanders, until President Obama produces a birth certificate proving he is a U.S. citizen.
My only question is how quick can Lakin be brought up on court martial charges? It should happen as soon as possible. Traitors do not belong in the military, especially a commissioned officer who is supposed to be held to a higher standard. He may be the highest ranking birther, but that’s what he is.
