Obama’s Eligibility: Military Trial Updates

Some military lawyers are questioning the strategy employed by Lt. Col. Terry Lakin’s lawyer in challenging Obama’s eligibility to be President and Commander in Chief. They doubt that a military judge will allow discovery to determine if Obama is a “natural born citizen,” as required by the Constitution, by demanding his official birth certificate, which Obama continues to keep hidden from the public.


However, the military may be trying to avoid the issue altogether or perhaps it is just moving cautiously. The Army has released a statement that they are inquiring into the “truth” of the charges against Dr. Lakin so that they can take the appropriate action in “the interest of justice and discipline.” 


So far every court that has received a lawsuit challenging Obama’s eligibility to be President (since it is well known his father was a British subject and his own grandmother has said she attended Barack’s birth–in Kenya) has found a way to keep the case from coming to trial. All have been denied; none have actually gone to trial. Perhaps only the U.S. Supreme Court is powerful enough to take on the challenge, but no lawsuit has made that far yet.
