And I'm not sure if he's bluffing.
In any case, he'd do well to take a moment and reflect upon the oath he took when he became a United States Army officer:
Soldier doubts eligibility, defies president's ordersIt's not clear whether Easterling has refused a direct order or he's simply threatening to. In any case, he should reread the oath he took when appointed to the rank of 2nd Lieutenant. It reads:
By Bob Unruh, World Net Daily
A U.S. soldier on active duty in Iraq has called President Obama an "impostor" in a statement in which he affirmed plans to join as plaintiff in a challenge to Obama's eligibility to be commander in chief.
"As an active-duty officer in the United States Army, I have grave concerns about the constitutional eligibility of Barack Hussein Obama to hold the office of president of the United States," wrote Scott Easterling in a "to-whom-it-may-concern" letter.
Obama "has absolutely refused to provide to the American public his original birth certificate, as well as other documents which may prove or disprove his eligibility," Easterling wrote. "In fact, he has fought every attempt made by concerned citizens in their effort to force him to do so." [link]
"I, _____, having been appointed an officer in the Army of the United States, as indicated above in the grade of _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservations or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter; So help me God." (DA Form 71, 1 August 1959)Is he "faithfully discharging the duties of his office"? I think not.
Tread softly, pal. this is serious stuff.
* His is a specious argument anyway. Obama was duly sworn in as the 44th president of the United States. If he doesn't accept it, he should take it up with the courts.
