WND Debunks News Website On Obama Eligibility Claims

Story here.

The article was featured on the Drudge Report. The Ledger-Enquirer did not respond to WND's questions about the alleged "documents" it cites.

The report also failed to identify the plaintiff's well-known attorney, Orly Taitz, as female. Instead, the story indicated Maj. Cook was "his" client.

So here we have another entity claiming that there's proof that Obama was born in America, but not providing the proof or specifying it.

They also got the gender of a key player wrong.

Sounds more like a crappy blog than a news website, doesn't the "Ledger-Enquirer"?

And their subheadline is incorrect, in that it says that the soldier says Obama isn't a "US citizen". The soldier never said Obama "wasn't a citizen", as far as I know. The soldier said that Obama wasn't the President because he doesn't fulfil the "natural-born" requirement of the Constitution to be President. The soldier explains his concerns:

"As an officer in the armed forces of the United States, it is [my] duty to gain clarification on any order we may believe illegal. With that said, if President Obama is found not to be a 'natural-born citizen,' he is not eligible to be commander-in-chief," he told WND hours after the case was filed.

"[Then] any order coming out of the presidency or his chain of command is illegal. Should I deploy, I would essentially be following an illegal [order]. If I happened to be captured by the enemy in a foreign land, I would not be privy to the Geneva Convention protections," he said.
