Orly Taitz: If the Military Was Smarter, It Could Have Prevented Fort Hood
Orly Taitz, who really seems to be staring down the end of her 15 minutes of fame, has filed a motion of reconsideration in Barnett et al v. Obama et al, her California “birther” lawsuit that was dismissed on Oct. 29. It’s the usual Taitzian ramble of made-up facts and cries for revenge — Taitz calls herself “the only attorney brave enough to bring most of eligibility legal actions, to bring actions from plaintiffs with real standing, the only one to get any hearings”–but there’s a classy new twist in her argument that the courts must allow soldiers to disobey the commander in chief.
Recent terrorist incident at Fort Hood has given this question paramount importance. This order has advocated blind obedience by the members of the military. If someone were to have common sense, brains and strength of character to challenge allegiance of Nidal Malik Hasan in court, after he made numerous anti-American and antimilitary statements, maybe 12 young boys wouldn’t be 6 feet under today, maybe 12 mothers and 12 fathers wouldn’t had their hearts ripped out of their chests and torn apart.
It’s stuff like this that’s pitted the less media-crazy “birthers” against Taitz for months now.
