FORT MEADE, Maryland — An Army doctor who disobeyed orders to deploy to Afghanistan because he questioned President Barack Obama's eligibility to be commander in chief has been sentenced to six months in a military prison and will be dismissed from the Army.Source
A military jury sentenced Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin on Thursday after three days of court-martial proceedings.
Before sentencing, Lakin had been found guilty of missing a flight that would have gotten him to his eventual deployment.
He also pleaded guilty to disobeying orders to meet with a superior and to report to deploy to Afghanistan.
Besides his sentence, Lakin will pay a potentially heavy financial price.
At 18 years in the Army he was two years short of retirement, which over the course of a lifetime could have added up to an estimated $2 million in retirement pay and benefits, according to NBC News.
In videos posted on YouTube earlier this year, Lakin aligned himself with the so-called "birther" movement, which questions whether Obama is a natural-born citizen as the U.S. Constitution requires for presidents.
It appears that the courts are becoming less tolerant of these moonbats.
