Army Revokes Major's Orders To Deploy To Afghanistan

By Jim Parks

The Army spared an officer the duty of serving in Afghanistan after he filed a lawsuit claiming he doesn't believe that President Obama is the legitimate President of the United States of America.

Major Stefan Cook filed a Federal lawsuit against the government.

Within a short time, the Army revoked his orders to deploy to Afghanistan..

His attorney, Ms. Orly Taitz, has demanded strict proof of the President's nativity. She requested a "vault copy" of the President's birth certificate.

Officials in Texas and Hawaii, when contacted for comment, said they had never heard of a "vault copy" of a birth certificate.

The event of President Barack Obama's live birth in a hospital at Honolulu, Hawaii, was recorded under a procedure that requires doctors and clerks to send a certificate to the State Registrar of Vital Statistics. In Texas, this document is kept in a vault equipped with a halon fire extinguishing system and subsequently recorded electronically.

Certified copies printed on security paper may be purchased under the strictures of certain rules and regulations, according to Geraldine Harris, Texas State Registrar of Vital Statistics at the State Health Services Commission.

It's a very big deal for many reasons. In the case of President Obama's nativity, it is extremely pertinent because the Constitution requires that a President be a native born American. Hawaii State Registrar of Vital Statistics Alvin Onaka was unavailable for comment. An assistant in his office said she, like Ms. Harris, has never heard of any certificate of a birth event being referred to as a "vault copy."

"Do you know what this means?" asked Ms. Taitz, the attorney who claims she is representing 170 soldiers who have questioned the legitimacy of the President's authority as Commander in Chief. "It means the Obama administration has blinked. They have no cards to play with. The moment I filed a lawsuit, they didn't even fight.

"Can you imagine what are the consequences? This is disastrous...We'll have no military because any time a soldier, any sailor, any airman does not want to follow any orders, all he has to do is call an attorney and say 'I don't want to follow this order because I question the legitimacy of the commander in chief.'"

As an Individual Mobilization Augmentee, Major Cook had volunteered for a year's deployment of Afghanistan on May 8. His orders were issued on June 9, according to Lt. Col. Maria Quon, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Army Human Resources Command at St. Louis. As an augmentee, his status allowed him to ask for revocation up to the time of his reporting date. Cook had not asked for this. Col. Quon said she could not say why the Army had revoked his orders. She cited the Privacy Act.

In the lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Georgia on July 8, Ms. Taitz told the court that Major Cook does not believe Obama is a natural-born U.S. citizen, and so cannot serve as president and commander-in-chief.
