The U.S. Army has confirmed June 11 for an Article 32 hearing for a physician who is refusing to obey orders until Barack Obama provides documentation of his eligibility to be commander-in-chief of the nation's military. The announcement comes today from the American Patriot Foundation, which operates the Safeguard Our Constitution website which is generating support for Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin.
The organization said Lakin has refused to deploy to Afghanistan again, "because the president refuses – even in the face of mounting evidence to the contrary – to prove his eligibility under the Constitution to hold office."
The hearing is scheduled at 9 a.m. in Room 134 of Building T-2 at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington. The organization said all proceedings are open to the media and public.
The Constitution requires a president to be a "natural born citizen," and while the term is not defined in the Constitution, many legal analysts believe at the time it was written it meant a person born in the U.S. of two U.S. citizen parents. Obama clearly does not qualify under that definition, since he has admitted his father never was a U.S. citizen. Some legal challenges have argued he wasn't even born in Hawaii.

I would think both sides of the arguement would be glad its time to deal with it instead of all the back and forth chatter.
Larkin made his move, the courts will decide on that decision, end of story (lets hope). Then, it can be put to rest.

Hopefully some evidence comes forward for either side. if I am not mistaken, there has been no official evidence put forth to prove barry's eligibility. every case has been dismissed without evidence being put on the table. That is why the question still is unanswered. dismissed cases prove nothing. internet pictures of the bc, and stories from people that have looked at it are not official evidence.
Not taking either side, just a hope that this issue will be solved and not dismissed.

well yes obviously.
Right now the information has been sealed. I doubt you have ever seen a birth certificate from BO because they are only presenting a certificate of live birth. Which does not prove citizenship it proves a birth has taken place.
Believe it or not people have children here and do not claim citizenship for this country. They claim for there home country.
Right now all evidence points toward ineligibility.
Otherwise until i see a birth certificate and not a certificate of live birth then obama deserves every birther claim to continue to sit in his lap.
The issue is that to many unformed folks making to many accusations.
If i showed up with a certificate of live birth to the dmv it would be inadequate proof of my identity.
Try it instead of running your mouth. Get a certificate of live birth and try to apply for anything.

I guess that means all people born in Hawaii aren't eligible for public office? Or every other State that issues "Certificates of Live Birth". We in Canada find this whole debate laughable. Do the birthers really believe that Obama wasn't vetted before he ran for President. If he wasn't eligible the GOP would have been all over it before the election.
Where is the Birther evidence? Lay down some hard evidence other than just speculation or baseless accusations! I don't care either way as I'm not a US citizen but really this whole debate is laughable. If he did fake it all then he's a master con-artist not rivaled in this world.
