The soldier claims Barack Obamaâs presidency is not legitimate, therefore he should not have to deploy to Afghanistan. Major Stefan Cook wanted a temporary restraining order so he wouldnât have to deploy. He says itâs not that he doesnât want to deploy, he just wants to wait until he knows President Obama is eligible to be the Commander-in-Chief. Cookâs deployment has already been revoked by the army, but through his lawyer, Major Cook says this is just a small part of the big picture âI am more than happy, ready and willing to deploy in Afghanistan but only under lawful orders,â says Major Stefan Cook. Major Stefan Cook is a 21-year veteran of the US Army Reserve but this deployment he is fighting on the grounds that President Obama may not be a natural born citizen. Cook volunteered to deploy in May of 2009, after the president was sworn in. The army says at no point has Cook tried to rescind his orders through the proper military channels. The army says as a volunteer, Cook could have taken back his request to deploy; instead the army revoked it earlier this week. Judge Clay Land ruled that there was not need for a temporary restraining order since the orders had already been revoked. Cookâs attorney argues that the bigger picture of Obamaâs citizenship should have been discussed. âIt makes no sense, its totally illogical, defies common sense and defies any sense of decency,â says Cookâs attorney, Orly Taitz. Judge Land says under the Constitution, federal court should only hear actual case and controversies, not political disputes or hypothetical disputes. Taitz says the president must prove two things to be considered a natural born citizen. One, that both of his parents were or are U.S. citizens and that the president was born in the United States. Taitz feels President Obama has not proven that. âHow many members of the military do we need to bring until finally somebody will have values, decency to decide with most important issue this country faces?â asks Taitz. Taitz says the ruling does not end her fight; she plans to appeal it until it gets resolved. US Attorney Maxwell Wood made this comment on the ruling. âThe judgeâs ruling speaks for itself.â According to published reports during the presidential campaign, Barack Obamaâs campaign did post his Hawaiian birth certificate on its website. The White House had no comment. Dr. Charles Bullock, a political science professor at the University of Georgia, says only one parent needs to be a citizen for the child to be granted a status of natural born citizen. Cookâs attorney says she has more military members who are joining in the fight, court documents show two others listed as plaintiffs. A spokesperson with the Army tells News Three that she is not aware of any others who have filed similar lawsuits.
