The shocking disrespect is no reason for court martial, but refusing orders sure is! Army Lt. Col. and complete asshole Terry Lakin is a birther. So he refused to go to Afghanistan for a second tour of duty. And — this is just a guess — he’s going to spend the next 20 years doing hard time at Ft. Leavenworth.
We’re not going to spend any time debunking the birther ideology because it’s been debukned countless times. We will say, though, that Lt. Col. Terry Lakin is racist, insane, and deserves to spend some time in prison for refusing a direct order from the Commander-in-Chief of the United States armed forces, the President of the United States, Barack Obama.
Per the U.S. Constitution, Article II, Section 2, Clause I, the President “shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States.”
