A U.S. Army flight surgeon who posted a video indicating his complete rejection of all orders from the military unless Barack Obama documents his eligibility to occupy the Oval Office is now refusing an "unofficial" suggestion from the Army for a medical evaluation.
WND reported this week the Army was hinting that Lt. Col Terry Lakin should undergo a brain scan and medical review.
A spokeswoman involved with the developing case said the recommendation was delivered to Lakin by an unnamed officer who implied those higher up the chain of command thought it was a good idea.
The suggestion was described to WND by spokeswoman Margaret Calhoun Hemenway, a veteran Washington appointee and now volunteer spokeswoman, as being presented in a "solicitous" manner.

Officially, the U.S. Army says it has no plans for formal action at this point against the officer. But Calhoun Hemenway told WND that Lakin's "no" meant "no."
"He is not taking any suggested medical evaluation or brain scan. He is refusing to obey all orders including deployment orders," she confirmed.
"It is interesting this suggestion of a medical exam should arise now given he was only a couple of weeks from deployment and obviously judged to be fit for deployment with his bags packed," she said.
But as WND reported, the controversy raises the prospect that the government may be unwilling to pursue a prosecution because of the possible ramifications â€“ which could include a defense lawyer's demand for a court-ordered discovery process that would target Obama's historical documentation
Even participants in a forum on the left-leaning Huffington Post website seemed to agree in part.
