Soldier Won't Deploy Over Obama Birth Certificate

I can’t believe people are still pissing themselves over these “birther” conspiracy theories. I mean, is there really no other sure-fire way to let the world know you’re batshit crazy?

Perfect example: U.S. Army Maj. Stefan Frederick Cook. Cook is claiming that he shouldn’t have to deploy to Afghanistan because he believes Barack Obama was never eligible to be president.

Um…Okay.

Let’s look at the facts:

1. Cook is a reserve soldier who volunteered for an active duty tour on May 8, 2009. (Wait – that’s after Obama was already sworn into office…)

2. He received his orders on June 9, 2009.

3. As a reserve soldier who volunteered for an active duty tour, Cook may ask for a “revocation of orders up until the day he is scheduled to report for active duty.”

4. There is an administrative process to request revocation of orders, but Cook hasn’t done so for some odd reason.

5. The U.S. Army no longer expects Cook to report Wednesday for mobilization to active duty.

I don’t get these people. Obama was sworn in as President of the United States of America. He is the Commander in Chief. Even if he is removed from office, commands he has given while in office will remain legal.

Questioning his orders on the basis of his qualification for office is not valid.

I also think Cook and his lawyer should explain why he volunteered in May if he felt this way to begin with. At least that way we can find out if his delusional thinking is a pattern or if he’s just gone of his dosage.

As usual, I turn now to Keith Olbermann:



I don’t want to advocate suicide, but…if I someone found Cook’s head in the oven I admit I wouldn’t be too upset over it.

Update:
Leave it to the Fox Nation to turn this situation into a chance to advance the birth certificate conspiracy theory.

As if the headline, "Soldier Who Challenged Obama's Citizenship Fired from Job," wasn’t enough, The Fox nation then goes on to link to WND's "Where's the birth certificate?" campaign promotions.

Pathetic.
