Hey Jacqi.

Not sure what happened to the last post on LTC Lakin. He had waived his preliminary hearing because he said the Army was making it impossible for him to present a defense. And he also put together a second video. Probably in the drafts. I’ll look and if I find them I’ll repost.

Now LTC Lakin has formally requested release of barry’s Hawaii birth records, as well as a deposition of Dr Fukino. Even if it isn’t successful – which of course it won’t be – Dr Fukino might see the light and realize she is going to be the first on the chopping block. Someone should remind her of her Hippocratic Oath: First Do No Harm.

Legal basis:

Lakin’s request was submitted by his counsel to the Commanding General of the Military District of Washington, Major General Karl R. Horst, under Rule 702(b) of the Rules for Courts-Martial, which provides that “A convening authority who has the charges for disposition or, after referral, the convening authority or the military judge may order that a deposition be taken on request of a party.”

And what I hadn’t seen – the Army amended LTC Lakin’s fitness review. [emphasis added]

July 16, 2010. Army Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin, who is being court-martialled for his principled stance in refusing to obey what he feels are illegal orders because they are given by a chain of command headed by a President who may be ineligible under the United States Constitution, has today released his appeal of the Army’s version of a “fitness report” which disparages him unjustly.

The “Officer Evaluation Report,” or “OER,” as it was originally drafted praised LTC Lakin as one of the top 10% of all Army medical department officers and recommended him both for promotion to full Colonel and for medical clinic command.

A few days later it was redrafted and said he was unfit for continued military service. Only one event had intervened.

Just may be the key to his case. LTC Lakin’s physical and mental fitness can easily be evaluated by a third party to prove whether he is “unfit for continued medical service”. If he can prove he is fit and have it backed up by medical tests he will have proof that they are at the very least trying to undermine his promotion. If he pushes enough, maybe they’ll make a quiet backroom deal and focus on someone who needs prosecution – the cowardly Afghanistan file leaker.

Will look at the medical reports. I looked at the forms provided and LTC Lakin was indeed ranked in the top 10% and the box “OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE, MUST PROMOTE” was checked off. But the site does not provide the updated report to compare with – just LTC Lakin’s comments.

TODAY’S FULL PRESS RELEASE FOLLOWS

DECORATED ARMY DOCTOR LTC TERRY LAKIN MAKES FORMAL REQUEST TO COMMANDING GENERAL FOR DEPOSITION OF HAWAII STATE DEPT OF HEALTH

Testimony Sought of “Custodian of Records” AND Production of all records relating to President

Decision to be made by Army Major General

Washington, D.C., July 29, 2010.  The Army doctor who is facing a court martial for refusing to obey orders, including a deployment order for his second tour of duty in Afghanistan, has formally requested his Commanding General approve a deposition in Hawaii of the records-keeper of the State Department of Health—and the production of all of their records concerning Barack Obama.

The records Lakin seeks have been the subject of intense interest ever since the closing days of the 2008 presidential campaign when a document appeared on the internet purporting to be a certification that Hawaii’s Dept. of Health had records showing he had been born in Honolulu.  Since then, Dr. Chiyome Fukino the head of that agency has made public statements on the subject, but has refused all requests for copies of the actual records in the Department’s custody.  Recently, a former Hawaii elections clerk has come forward saying that he was told that the Department’s records showed Obama was NOT born in Hawaii.

The United States Constitution requires that a person be a “natural born citizen” to be elected to the presidency.  If Mr. Obama was not born in Honolulu as he has claimed, then he is unlikely to be a “natural born citizen”.  An examination of the records kept by the Hawaii Dept. of Health are an essential first step in ascertaining Mr. Obama’s constitutional eligibility to hold the office to which he was elected in 2008.

While no civil litigant has obtained discovery of these records, and all the civil lawsuits seeking those records have been dismissed on procedural grounds, Lakin’s case is different because he is the subject of criminal prosecution, and upon conviction stands in jeopardy of being sentenced to years at hard labor in the penitentiary.

Lakin’s request was submitted by his counsel to the Commanding General of the Military District of Washington, Major General Karl R. Horst, under Rule 702(b) of the Rules for Courts-Martial, which provides that “A convening authority who has the charges for disposition or, after referral, the convening authority or the military judge may order that a deposition be taken on request of a party.”

Lakin’s civilian attorney has been provided to him by the American Patriot Foundation, a non-profit group incorporated in 2003 to foster appreciation and respect for the U.S. Constitution, which has established a fund for Lakin’s legal defense.
