(Newser) – An Army doctor who says he won't go to war until he sees President Obama's birth certificate is being arraigned in Virginia today. Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin was charged with disobeying orders earlier this year after failing to turn up for deployment to Afghanistan, and demanding to see proof that Obama is eligible to be his commander-in-chief and have the right to order him to go there. He will face a court-martial this fall, AP reports.
