“native-born” (birth place) status of Barack Hussein Obama. “Native-Born” is NOT the constitutionalrequirement for the office of president; “natural-born” is the requirement.As a result, LTC Lakin’s team remains in search of the Hawaiian birth certificate, which at best if oneexists, would only prove Obama’s birth place and time, his “native-born” status, NOT his “natural-born”status.On

, we issued asecond White Paper delving deeper into the challenges andconsequences of the LTC Lakin courts-martial, which reach far beyond the individual career and future of LTC Lakin. These two White Papers make it impossible for any honest investigative effort to miss thevital importance of the Lakin case - the true definition of natural-born citizen - or the consequences of allowing Lakin to cut a deal (or) to be found guilty of wrongfully refusing orders. No two papers in America have been better vetted, before and since the release. Yet the Lakin team hasvigorously refused to make any alterations to a defense strategy they know is wrong, and have been told by Col. Lind that they cannot even use, resting their faith in a CAAF
(Court of Appeals for Armed Forces)
appeals process also run by presidential appointments.
As we stated in the second White Paper - We believe that there are only two potential outcomes of this courts-martial, and that both outcomes bring certain challenges. Our first priority must be to unite in defense of LTC Lakinin an effort to arrive at the best possible outcome for both Lakin and the nation. A conviction is unacceptable for thefollowing reasons;1.LTC Lakin is found
of wrongfully refusing orders. With this outcome we get the following precedents.a)Anyone, without so much as a birth certificate, can hold the office of President and Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. Military. b)ALL soldiers must blindly follow orders whether or not those orders are legal, yet soldiers willcontinue to be charged with following those illegal orders, as they are today.c)Not even a high ranking officer has the right to challenge the lawfulness of the orders.
Net Effect of the First Two White papers
More people are aware of the Lakin case
More people know the true meaning of “natural-born citizen”
Several key lawyers across the country are ready to fight the right battle
The Lakin Defense Team dug in their heels in defense of their strategy
The so-called “conservative new media” went silent on the subject
Members of the federal government and Lakin defense team have attacked people who forwarded the WhitePapers, including the authors of the White Papers
Tea Party “constitutionalists” are aware, but nowhere to be found on the matter
Members of congress who could step in, are running for cover
