A U.S. Army Reserve major challenged orders sending him to Afghanistan on the grounds that the orders were not lawful, because Obama is not actually eligible, due to being born outside of the U.S. or its territories, and not a citizen.
He won the challenge.
I argued, as this topic came up just after the election, that there was no way that a man who was not actually eligible could make it all the way through the primaries, and be named the party candidate. I mean, McCain demonstrated that, though he was born in Panama, he was born to two U.S. citizen parents, in territory basically owned by the United States.
Obama was not born to two U.S. citizens. And apparently, the army has doubts that his certificate of live birth in a Hawaiian hospital isn't valid. And no one has seen his official birth certificate.
The White House backpedaled awfully fast on the soldier's deployment for this to have no credibility. There hasn't been anything else said--not why, nor any punishment for the refusal to obey orders.
I suspect that we may well see our military take action to protect our Constitution, along the lines of what just happened in Honduras.
