Birther in the Military

I wonder if a discharge for chronic stupidity comes under "dishonorable" or "medical"?

U.S. Army Maj. Stefan Frederick Cook, who should be getting ready to deploy to Afghanistan, is instead seeking a temporary restraining order under the guise of being a conscientious objector. Cook is a birther who is arguing that President Obama is not a natural born citizen and, therefore, ineligible to be commander-in-chief.


When not filing suit against his commander-in-chief, Cook has also made time to post at the conservative website FreeRepublic.

That's punchline enough right there. But this is the really hysterical part: in his complaint, Cook states that he “would be acting in violation of international law by engaging in military actions outside the United States under this President’s command. … simultaneously subjecting himself to possible prosecution as a war criminal by the faithful execution of these duties.”

Now they worry about international law, committing war crimes, et al. How... convenient.

Birthers? Why didn't you have IQers back in 2000, that would have been more helpful.
