Here is a link to the S.O.C. press release announcing that LTC Lakin’s motions for deposition of various Hawaiian officials will be heard of Sep 2 at Ft. Meade. It also provides excerpts for a declaration for a Retired Air Force–Air Force, not Army–Lieutenant General supporting LTC Lakin’s request for President Obama’s birth records. Some of the declaration is reprinted on the website, but here is the gist:
If [Pres. Obama] is ineligible under the Constitution to serve in that office that creates a break in the chain of command of such magnitude that its significance can scarcely be imagined.
As a practical example from my background I recall commanding forces
that were equipped with nuclear weapons. In my command capacity I was responsible that personnel with access to these weapons had an unwavering and absolute confidence in the unified chain of command, because such confidence was absolutely essential–vital– in the event the use of those weapons was authorized. I cannot overstate how imperative it is to train such personnel to have confidence in the unified chain of command.
I couldn’t agree more. As to relevance . . .
