FORT MEADE, Md. — A military court in Maryland is set to hear the case of an Army doctor charged with refusing to deploy to Afghanistan because he doubts whether President Barack Obama was born in the United States and therefore questions his eligibility to be president.

A court martial proceeding against Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin will begin Tuesday at Fort Meade. An 18-year veteran of the Army, Lakin disobeyed orders to report to a Kentucky army base earlier this year to prepare for deployment, saying he believed the orders were illegal.

In videos posted on YouTube, Lakin has aligned himself with so-called birthers who question whether Obama is a natural-born citizen as presidents are required to be by the U.S. Constitution.
