Lt. Col. Lakin is one such man, that is a man with courage. This gentle man did what no other currently serving officer or enlisted man or woman has done to date, that is, he stood alone before God and Country honorably fulfilling his sworn Oath –
“I, (state your name), having been appointed a (rank) in the United States (branch of service), do solemnly swear (or affirm) thatI will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the office upon which I am about to enter. So help me God.”
The Lt. Colonel stood his ground by defying an order handed down by the US Commander In Chief, Barack H. Obama. He defied this order on the grounds that the CIC is serving in direct violation of Article II of the United States Constitution. Rather than the CIC providing records to substantiate his non violation, he chose to make an example of Lt. Colonel Lakin by employing a full military court martial.
You tell me, what honorable man would deny a career military officer discovery, and instead use the full weight of his office to court martial him? None! That’s who.
