Banned Wikipedia Article on Terry

This is a copy of the article from wikipedia that was removed (corrected on 11/21/2010 by SOC Staff).

Regardless of your opinion of Terry or the birth certificate issue, this article is as good as many and better than most short biographical entries. Terry is a significant person and his story should stand apart from the conspiracy page to which the stub now points. There is no reason why it should have been removed.

You should also read the "Who is Terry Lakin" article on this site for additional background.

Dr.Terrence L. Lakin D.O. is a lieutenant colonel in the United States Army. LTC Lakin is an osteopathic medical physician and serves the Army as a flight surgeon, family physican, and an occupational and environmental medicine physican. [2] Terry was selected for promotion to full colonel.

Early Career

Lakin is a native of Greeley, Colorado [3]

Refusal to Deploy to Afghanistan

On or about April 12, 2010, according to his charge sheet, LTC Lakin refused to report for deployment with 32nd Calvary Regiment, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) from Fort Campbell, KY, in support of Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan).[4] U.S. military officials state the reason given was that Lakin believes the order to be illegal. He instead returned to the Pentagon medical clinic he had been assigned to before receiving new temporary orders to report to Fort Campbell. At the Pentagon clinic temporarily assigned him to Walter Reed Army Medical Center and  immediately flagged LTC Lakin for removal from special actions including promotion or awards. He was advised that he was under investigation for  court-martial. Lakin was stripped of his Pentagon access security badge and his government-issued laptop computer. [5] [6]

Court-Martial Charges

LTC Lakin faces charges of disobeying a lawful order, one count of missing movement, disobeying orders to report to a new unit, disobeying orders to report to his brigade commander, and one count of dereliction of duty after refusing to deploy to Afghanistan unless provided with proof that President Obama is a natural born U.S. citizen.[7][8][9]

While under investigation, Lakin has been assigned to Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington, D.C.[10] The court-martial trial is scheduled for December 14-16, 2010 at Fort Meade, MD.[11] Lakin’s defense team includes military defense attorneys and the civilian firm of Pucket & Faraj PC, with offices in Alexandria, Virginia.[12]

Defense Motion to Compel production of Barack Obama’s Records (Request for Discovery)

During a September 2, 2010 pretrial hearing held at Fort Meade, MD, Lakin’s previous defense team was denied a motion to compel the State of Hawaii to produce all of President Obama’s natal records. Additionally, the motion had asked for the court appearance and testimony of several State of Hawaii officials including the appropriate “custodian of records”. Also requested was testimony concerning the uniform chain of command from Air Force Lt Gen (Ret) Thomas McInerney in support of his court affadit. In addition, the motion sought school records relevant to identity, and college admission and financial aid application writings from Harvard University, Columbia University, Occidental College, and Punahoa School of “Barrack Houssein Obama II/Barry Soetoro”. [13] [14]

Chief Judge, 1st Judicial Court COL, JA Denise R. Lind wrote, “Any suggestion by the defense that the authority of military officers to issue any lawful orders ceases to exist if a serving President is found to be unqualified by the Constitution to hold office is an erroneous view of the law. Similarly, any suggestion by the defense that if a President is found to be unqualified by the Constitution to hold office, service-members have no duty to follow any orders issued by their military superiors is equally erroneous... The Court further concludes it is impossible for this Article 1 Court to undertake independent resolution of whether President Obama is a natural born citizen or is qualified under the Constitution to hold office without expressing lack of respect due coordinate branches of government... The potential for embarrassment from mulitfarious pronouncements by various departments on one question are uniquely powerful to ensure that courts-martial do not become the vehicle for adjudicating the legality of political decisions and to ensure the military’s capacity to maintain good order and discipline in the armed forces.” [15]
