Wikipedia explains that "Perhaps the most important of all presidential powers is command of the United States armed forces as commander-in-chief. While the power to declare war is constitutionally vested in Congress, the President commands and directs the military and is responsible for planning military strategy."
What if the President isn't constitutionally qualified to have the authority to direct the troops? One soldier in Georgia (US) is stating that his deployment to Afghanistan is null and void because President Barack Obama is not qualified to be President. Therefore, if he is not qualified, he has no authority to deploy troops, including him, to Afghanistan. Story here. Dr. Orly is representing the soldier.
A bit more information has come out regarding Dr. Orly's case heard in Santa Ana court yesterday. It seems that it is not quite the slam dunk victory that was initially seemed. This case brings out the best and the worst of the biases in the media and it is very hard to get correct information. The Right Side of Life has what seems to me to be an objective reporting of the facts. I encourage all to read it in its entirety there. Here is the last sentence:
"[T]he case is going to move forward without hindrance to the point that the Judge can make a decision on whether or not the actual case is to be tried. In other words, while the Judge is making sure that procedural issues are taken care of, he must still decide whether or not the case will be heard."
On her blog, Dr. Orly writes: "I’ve got some 45,000 e-mails and some 883 comments for moderation. I greatly appreciate everybody’s comments and input, but it is very hectic now, I am getting ready to fly to GA, don’t have time to respond and moderate, I’ll try to do as much as I can over the weekend." She received those e-mails and comments within 12 hours of the news breaking about the Santa Ana case going forward. I do believe that while many of those emails may be supportive, an equal number are most likely vile. Please pray for this lady. She is a soldier of truth.
