Paranoid delusions? In what way? This officer has an obligation to follow all Lawfull orders, prove they are. At the end of the day, for now, Obama is the Commander in chief, if he isn't in reality, all of his orders would be illegal. Seems everyone enjoys bitching about our troops and the illegal wars, ohhhh they are following illegal orders because the war is illegal. Well, when one brave man stands up to it, just because it doesn't meet the kool aide drinkers merits he's delusional? Give me a break, the man is a hero.

Stubborn but with principals. Principals do make you right. Morals, values and principals are what make you a real man or a lady.

WRONG!!!! being a member of the armed services does not require you to be a natural born citizen and every single service member that IS a US citizen showed their birth certificate prior to being allowed to join.
As a service member sworn to defend the constitution, it is your obligation to ensure that you are following the orders of those DULY appointed over you. If those who are issuing your orders are issuing them in a way that you believe to be unconstitutional, since it is your duty to protect and defend the constitution, then you are obligated to refuse those orders until your objections are quelled.
The BC arguement didn't mean much to me until Obama spent so much time, effort, and money to conceal the document along with his Occidental College records.

He swore to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. When anyone who takes that oath has reason to believe their superiors are either illegal or giving illegal orders they are honor bound to do exactly what the Lt Col. is doing.

He took an oath to obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over him. Presidents do not sign deployment orders.
