Army Maj. Stefan Frederick Cook -- the high-ranking douche who re-enlisted for the sole purpose of refusing deployment on the grounds that Obama is not a natural-born citizen and, therefore, not actually president -- has some company.
Or, at least, this is what "jumpy, pie-eyed" faux-torney Orly Taitz claims. There are supposedly 170 other soldiers who are willing to file similar protests, according to the Daily Beast

Never mind that this conspiracy theory has been debunked time and time again -- Obama's certificate of live birth, certified by Hawaii's REPUBLICAN governor. Or the birth announcements in two Honolulu newspapers. These crackpots won't be happy until a white man is in the White House.
