The tone over at American Thinker appears to be slightly sympathetic to this loon:
Before the meeting was over, LTC Lakin's Pentagon Access Pass had been revoked, and his laptop computer was set to be confiscated.
The message to LTC Lakin is clear; through official channels, he was informed yesterday that he will shortly be court-martialled for crimes (specifically, missing movement and conduct unbecoming an officer) that for others has led to lengthy imprisonment at hard labor.

Me? I personally believe Obama probably WAS born in Hawaii, but that his original birth certificate says his nationality is British (coming from a colony, technically his father was a British subject) or Kenyan. Then there's the whole two-step he did with his citizenship when he was a kid in Indonesia, but I'm prone to give him a pass on that; he was a kid - the kid takes the citizenship of his parents (in this case US and Indonesian) and when he's 18 years of age, he declares one way or the other.
Either way, it doesn't matter if he's from Hawaii, or Kenya, or Mars for that matter - they swore him in and until they undo that, he's the President of the United States. It's not up to serving officers to go out and grandstand like this, promoting disloyalty in the ranks.
Oh well, if a light colonel wants to fall on his sword, hit the self-destruct button on his own career, and make a total ass out of himself along the way, it won't be the first time. Me? I was taught to blend into the formation, be the gray man, never draw attention to yourself . . .
. . . it worked for me for twenty-five years, and I had a LOT of fun along the way!
