Soldier doubts eligibility, defies president's orders
'As an officer, my sworn oath to support and defend our Constitution requires this'


A U.S. soldier on active duty in Iraq has called President Obama an "impostor" in a statement in which he affirmed plans to join as plaintiff in a challenge to Obama's eligibility to be commander in chief.

To Any and All Interested Parties,

As an active-duty Officer in the United States Army, I have grave concerns about the constitutional eligibilty of Barack Hussein Obama to hold the Office of President of The United States. He has absolutely refused to provide to the American public his original birth certificate, as well as other documents which may prove or disprove his eligibility. In fact, he has fought every attempt made by concerned citizens in their effort to force him to do so.

Until Mr. Obama releases a "vault copy" of his original birth certificate for public review, I will consider him neither my Commander in Chief nor my President, but rather, a usurper to the Office - an impostor.

My conviction is such that I am compelled to join Dr. Orly Taitz's lawsuit, as a plaintiff, against Mr. Obama. As a citizen, it pains me to do this, but as an Offficer, my sworn oath to support and defend our Constitution requires this action.

I joined the Army at age 40, after working in Iraq as a contractor with KBR in '05/'06. I chose to work with KBR to support my troops and then left that lucrative position when the Army raised it's maximum enlistment age to 40. Upon completion of Basic Training, I entered Officer Candidate School and commissioned as a 2LT in August 2007. After completing the subsequent Basic Officer Leadership courses, I was assigned to Ft. Knox and shortly therafter deployed to Balad, Iraq. I was promoted to 1LT on Feb. 2, 2009 and I have approximately five months remaining of our fifteen month deployment.

I implore all Service-members and citizens to contact their Senators and Representatives and demand that they require Mr. Obama prove his eligibility. Our Constitution and our great nation must not be allowed to be disgraced.

Very Respectfull,
Scott R. Easterling
1LT OD/LG
United States Army


This may get interesting... (empadded)

about time.
This issue will come back to haunt Obama if he doesn't provide the proof.
That is all he needs to do and Orly and the rest of them will have to shut up.
Which leads me to believe, he isn't legit.

That is what I have never understood. He went out of his way to hide it.

Yeah, People think he is fine, and get pissed because we keep pushing it. If he, and his supporters want us to lay off, then show the damn proof, thats all we ask for.

Alot of people think that he is eligible to be Pres. I actually hope he is (well kinda...lol) so our nation is not ruined. I just don't see why if he is eligible, can he not simply show the documents. Its that easy. This is the most conclusive evidence against the legality of his being President.

The article doesn't say anything about him "defying orders" yet- he has only signed on to an existing suit. If he had defied any order from his superiors, he'd be headed to a court martial and would soon be on a flight to the military prison at Ft. Leavenworth- as a military officer, I assure you the military doesn't screw around with stuff like that. Then again, maybe that's what he wants- a way to get out of Iraq.

This junior officer can doubt anything he wants, but he can't defy the orders of those appointed over him, whether that person be a mere Captain or the CINC.

Great, but sticking up for the constitution would also include refusing to fight in an unconstitutional war.

but, you see, he probably doesn't see the war as unconstitutional, at least yet.
but if he can see this about Obama, maybe he will see other things also.

I'm in agreement with the guy, and I must say, he's got some balls for speaking out...it's against the UCMJ for officers to speak derisively about the President. He could be court martialed and/or booted out for this.

He is not speaking about the president, he is pointing out an usurper who has his hands on our military.
