So Blue Falcon (the first word is “Buddy”) Stefan Cook has accomplished that which we here at TAH figured. He screwed two of his fellow Engineer officers according to the Stars and Stripes;
Lt. Col. Holly Silkman, a spokeswoman for SOCCENT, said the Army couldn’t let Cook’s critical engineer billet be hijacked by further legal wrangling. Cook was scheduled to deploy on July 15, and his position cannot sit empty.
The officer Cook was supposed to replace “is going to have to remain in Afghanistan a while longer,” Silkman said, noting the Army is seeking a replacement. “No one has been identified yet, but it is a priority fill, so we’re working on it and expect to fill it soon. Engineers are in high demand.”
One major is screwed because he/she has to remain in theater longer and the other is screwed because he’s/she’s got to deploy on short notice. Does that faze Cook’s dentist/real estate agent/lawyer, Oily Titz?
The military has shown its cards “and they have nothing to play with,” Taitz said. “By revoking the orders, it’s clear to anybody. Think reasonably: Why would the military undermine itself by revoking its orders?”
Her conclusion: The Army let Cook out of his orders because officials couldn’t prove in court that Obama was born in the United States and is therefore the legitimate commander in chief.
Even if the lawsuit was allowed to go forward, those same two majors would’ve been screwed by Cook. Ya know, two good majors that do what they’re ordered to do.
Cook has lost his second attempt at filing a lawsuit against his employer for stuffing his ass. The implications of the whole new phase of numbnuttery from the experts on numbnuttery at World Net Daily;
Given the number of sea and barracks lawyers in the various branches of the U.S. military, it seems unlikely that it will take very long for servicemen who are disinclined to accept an unpalatable or dangerous order to figure out how to best make use of this useful little veto. If even a small number of soldiers elect to do so, the effect on military discipline could rapidly become catastrophic.
So you yardbirds who think you’re doing the country a favor, how about stopping for a moment, taking a deep breath and think about the consequences of your supposedly “patriotic” actions.
