Colo. native demands Obama prove American birth

GREELEY, Colorado – A Greeley native who says he’s a Lieutenant Colonel in the Army says he won’t go to Afghanistan until President Barack Obama provides his birth certificate showing he’s eligible to hold office.

Terry Lakin told The Associated Press that he works at the Pentagon’s DiLorenzo TRICARE Health Clinic and is attached to a headquarters company at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.

In a video posted on YouTube, Lakin says he’s an 18-year Army veteran who’s “choosing to disobey” orders he says are illegal, including an order to deploy to Afghanistan at “great peril” to his career and future. Lakin declined further comment when reached through his Greeley-area parents Saturday. Officials at the Pentagon and at Walter Reed did not immediately return messages.
