When courts-martial presiding authority Col. Denise Lind issued a ruling that blocked Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin’s constitutional right to provide a defense by denying him a right to discovery and evidence supporting his decision to refuse what he believed to be illegal orders, thousands of fellow military veterans unified in Lakin’s defense.
The Veterans Council of the The United States Patriots Union, led by respected retired officers like Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely and Col. Harry Riley, and Sgt. Timothy Harrington issued White Paper #1 on September 3, 2010. It recommended a slightly different defense strategy for Lt. Col. Lakin that focused solely upon the historic term natural-born citizen as a constitutional requirement for the office of president.
The report called upon the Lakin defense to drop the search for a birth certificate native-born and focus on the bloodline of the father natural-born issues already known.When the Lakin defense team rebuffed calls from USPU Veterans to alter defense strategy, the Veterans Council issued White Paper #2 on September 10, 2010.
It delved deeper into concerns over the anti-constitutional precedents being established in the Lakin case and reinforced calls upon the Lakin defense team to change strategies, offering to bring expert UCMJ and criminal counsel to the table on behalf of Lakin.
The second white paper also established the proper interpretation of the term natural-born citizen – “that, in order to be of the country, it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country.”
