In December, Army Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin (a doctor) pleaded guilty to disobeying orders to deploy to Afghanistan. Why did he do it? He doesn't believe Obama is a natural-born citizen. In other words, he's a birther. And now, after being dismissed from the Army and serving five months of a six-month sentence, he's free.
With Lakin now free, and even after the release of the president's birth certificate, many of his supporters are as adamant as ever that Obama still is not eligible to be president of the United States:
“A duel citizen can’t be president," one woman told WJZ-TV, before another man interrupted, "Mommy and Daddy have to be born here."
That sentiment was echoed by at least one other person who doubted the birth certificate's authenticity: “It’s the biggest phony I’ve ever seen in my life."
Lakin hasn't said whether he believes the certificate is real or not. But one of his supporters beleives "he’s still dedicated to the cause and believes in the Constitution.”
