Army suggests brain scan for eligibility challenger

The U.S. Army is – unofficially – suggesting a brain scan and medical evaluation for an officer who announced he would refuse to follow further orders until and unless President Obama documents his constitutional eligibility to be commander in chief.

Lt. Col. Terry Lakin is the highest-ranking and first active-duty officer to refuse to obey orders based on President Obama’s eligibility.

A spokeswoman for the developing case of Lt. Col. Terry Lakin, a flight surgeon with 18 years in the service, said the recommendation came to Lakin today from an officer whose name was not being used who implied that those higher up the chain of command thought it was a good idea.

The suggestion was described to WND by spokeswoman Margaret Calhoun Hemenway, a veteran Washington appointee and now volunteer spokeswoman, as being presented in a “solicitous” manner.

Officially, the U.S. Army says it has no plans for formal action at this point against the officer. But the controversy also raises the prospect that the government may be unwilling to pursue a prosecution because of the possible ramifications – including a defense demand for a court-ordered discovery process that would target Obama’s historical documentation.

As WND reported, Lakin is an active-duty flight surgeon charged with caring for Army Chief of Staff Gen. George Casey’s pilots and air crew.

The top-ranking, highly decorated officer says he’s refusing all orders until Obama releases his long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate to prove his eligibility to serve as commander in chief.

Personally, I’m thinking a brainscan might be a good idea for the entire Congressional leadership. How else to explain their belief that they can cut costs, avoid rationing, and give more people medical insurance at the same time, all without expanding the pool of available medical services, physicians, hospitals, etc.?

And then there’s this guy.

This seems to be a person who could really use some professional attention. Perhaps a teeny, tiny alien starship has crash landed into his skull, and caused microscopic damage to a few neurons.

Well… quite a few.

There are reports that this person’s medical condition really IS the cause of his wackiness. If so… why is he still in Congress?

You really can’t make this stuff up.

    He is, I am afraid, the congressman from the fourth district of the Great State of Georgia. (Not the one near Russia, home of Stalin.)

    He now claims he was being facetious. Hmmm.. he should keep his day job, because he really can’t tell a joke…. if that really is the case.

    But why all the nonsense about the SIZE of Guam, geographically, if it was a “joke”?

    Hmmmm..
