Army doc, 'birther' refuses to go to Afghanistan


WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- An Army doctor who questioned President Barack Obama's citizenship, and then disobeyed orders to report for duty in Afghanistan, is under investigation.

Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin did not report to Fort Campbell, Ky., on Monday.

Instead, he went back to his old job in a clinic in the Pentagon. He's now working at Walter Reed Army Medical Center while the investigation is under way.

Hawaiian officials have verified that Obama was born there, so-called "birthers" claim he was born outside the U.S., and therefore, ineligible to be president.

Lakin says he wants to see the birth certificate as proof Obama is his commander in chief and thus that the deployment order for Afghanistan is legal.
