I suspect that the captain is willing to follow the order to deploy, however SOMEBODY has to have standing to challenge the authority of Obama to give legal orders if people suspect that because of his birth he is not legally eligible to give those orders.
If a military officer does not have standing to challenge the authority of the CIC, then nobody does.
Is that the way we set up the constitution?
If an imposter is sworn in as President, there is nobody on earth with the authority to challenge his status?
The constitution also says that the president must be removed from office after 8 years. What if Obama decides to pull a Zelaya? What if he, by executive order, decides the constitution does not prohibit him from appointing himself President for Life?
It can't happen here?
See my previous couple of posts this same thread.
PM, imagine a weapons system. Let’s say it is a missile intercept system. Also imagine that they’ve left off the tail fin from every 3rd interceptor missile that they’ve sent you.
This is a problem. It could be a deadly problem.
Now, imagine a military combat unit as a carefully constructed and balanced weapons system. It actually is rated in terms of its combat power and combat effectiveness. It might have any number of components: infantry, armor, aviation, cooks, clerks, and DOCS.
Doctors are critical to the maintenance and reconstruction of one’s forces, and they are critical to the morale of the force.
If you pull one out, then you’ve effectively injured that weapons system in the same way as you injured that missile by removing a tail fin from every 3rd missile.
These military members of ours do not operate in a vacuum. Everyone is dependent on and connected to everyone else.
That is why this cannot be an acceptable definition of the freedom of individual troops. Their behavior cannot be designed to threaten the lives of others.
That is why I’m confident that this officer is not understanding the nature of orders received in an ongoing war.
