Because they won't court-martial those who refuse deployment orders on the grounds that Obama's Constitutional eligibility to be President isn't validly proven.
Worse... it appears now that ANY US Forces personnel will now have a way of getting out of going to war, and will avoid court martial. Logic dictates this. If this weren't true, then the Pentagon would definitely have decided to proceed with Dr. Terry Lakin's court-martial for refusing direct deployment orders. Instead, they "reassigned" him. This is serious and dangerous- now the US Forces personnel will see that they, too, can refuse deployment orders on the grounds that it's not proven that, Constitutionally, Obama is a legal, legitimate Commander-In-Chief, and that his orders have any validity.
"The Pentagon's decision to back down rather than risk exposing Obama's birth records to the public means that every single American soldier, sailor, pilot and Marine now holds a 'get out of war free' card."
Obama's actual response to those who question his eligibility to be president under the Constitution's requirement that the U.S. president be a "natural born citizen" has been to dispatch both private and tax-funded attorneys to prevent anyone from gaining access to his documentation.
Besides Obama's actual birth documentation, the still-concealed documentation for him includes kindergarten records, Punahou school records, Occidental College records, Columbia University records, Columbia thesis, Harvard Law School records, Harvard Law Review articles, scholarly articles from the University of Chicago, passport, medical records, his files from his years as an Illinois state senator, his Illinois State Bar Association records, any baptism records, and his adoption records.
Clearly, Barack Hussein Barry Soetoro Obama is one helluvan international man of mystery.
We're supposed to assume he's legally, legitimately President just because a million or however many people claim that he was born on American soil. But, really, has anyone actually provided any proof beyond reasonable doubt? NO! There remains ONE document... and THAT is the ONLY piece of valid proof that the reasonable person will accept in order to dispel their doubt. But Obama is hellbent on ensuring that no one ever sees this document. No substitutes will be deemed valid by the reasonable person (and there's millions, I suspect), no matter how one spins and propagates about any such substitutes.
The longer Obama stonewalls, the worse it will get and the more people will doubt that he's anything other than an impostor, a fraud, guilty of treason, which, by the way, I believe, carries the death penalty if the defendant is convicted thereof.
I really do believe that Obama's hiding his original birth certificate (forget the COLB already!) because it indicates he was born outside the United States. Or some other extremely damaging fact might be on it. Why else take the unprecedented, extreme, shocking measures to ensure it never, ever is to be viewed, in the flesh, in a manner of speaking, by the public?
If there really wasn't any question as to Obama's eligibility to be President, then surely he wouldn't bother to use such extraordinary measures, such cloak-and-dagger and such multimilliondollar-in-cost-so-far legal warfare tactics. The fact that he's doing everything in his power to keep his original birth certificate a secret is logically, rationally indicative of a man who desperately has something very serious to hide.
I don't trust Obama. I cannot. Given the apparent facts, I'd have to go nuts and lapse into denial and delusion to be able to trust this guy.
I do believe that Obama's secrecy is extremely dangerous. I'd hate to envision the possibilities attendant to possible ineligibility, given how many extreme things, vis-a-vis policy, he's done in the White House. His national-security policies are particularly ominous, particularly the declaration that he won't use nukes to retaliate against non-nuclear states who use other WMDs to murder millions of Americans on American soil, thus creating, owing to the psychological nature of evil state dictators, a greater likelihood of attack.
Which makes it critically important to ensure, with the ONE piece of valid proof, that this man is not an impostor!
The onus rests solidly, squarely upon Barack Hussein Barry Soetoro Obama.
He is responsible for any and all wrongdoing, and so are all who would be party to any such wrongdoing.
Mr. Obama, show us your original birth certificate!
