However, the case is distinctly different in that the war in Iraw was lawful. The question regarding the eligibility of the President is an entirely different matter.

Watada didn't believe that the war was lawful. In his opinion it was illegal and he believed that by agreeing to participate in it he was liable for being prosecuted for war crimes. So where is it really different? Watade believed the war was unlawful, Rhodes believes the commander-in-chief is illegitimate. In both cases you have officers taking it upon themselves what orders are to be obeyed and what are not. Why is it OK for one and not for the other?

It would seem the correctness of the opinion, should it be allowed to be determined, would make a difference. But that is clearly a question that you, like tho One whose interests you serve, do not want to have determined.

If an enemy dressed in a U.S. military uniform and then proceeded to order troops, would these orders be valid?

(By the way this did happen in WWII during the Battle of the Bulge.)

An honest, upright, straightforward person would be **HONORED** to prove that he was a natural born citizen of the United States.

Obama is behaving **irrationally**! It is an extremely inexpensive matter to prove natural born status, and he could do so with about $50 and the nod of his head. Yet...He now has the DOJ with government lawyers preventing this! ( Note the plural on lawyer”S”.) Our **tax dollars** are being used to prevent discovery on key documents. Tax dollars? UNBELIEVABLE!!!!

This is **not** normal behavior! Now that there is an Internet, this news can not be held back from the American people. I see one of two things happening:

1) The case will crack under the pressure of American disbelief and outrage, and Obama will be determined to be natural born or not by our highest courts.

2) The credibility of his presidency will be badly damaged and, along with it, the Democratic Party.
