Speaking Truth to Guano
Neal Puckett, LTC Lakin’s new civilian defense counsel, has publicly renounced a birther defense for LTC Lakin. And, interestingly enough, he did so during an interview with the WorldNetDaily–birtherism’s official in-house electronic newsrag.
In an article dated 2204 last night, WND’s Bob Unruh quotes from an interview with Mr. Puckett. The article’s lead reports that LTC Lakin’s trial has been moved to 14 December. A few paragraphs down, Mr. Unruh drops a bombshell in uncharacteristically understated fashion:
Puckett confirmed that the judge in the case, Denise Lind, “rendered the proper legal ruling” regarding access to Obama’s birth and eligibility evidence.
“She was right on the facts and right on the law,” he told WND.
He hinted about his plan of defense.
“All those issues concerning the president’s eligibility to hold office are completely irrelevant as to whether Lt. Col. Lakin was issued lawful orders and whether he obeyed them,” he said.
Having thus reported that the Lakin defense has renounced birtherism — and even proclaimed Judge Lind’s ruling to be correct — Mr. Unruh then moves on to regurgitating previous reporting spouting the birther gospel.
It will be interesting to see what he goes with now. His best bet would be to offer to resign and accpet the Other Than Honorable discharge if the Army was willing to do that. Which I doubt at this point.
