DOD orders reservist who questioned Obama's BC to be fired

Well well well, that didn’t take long.

The Department of Defense has compelled a private employer to fire a U.S. Army Reserve major from his civilian job after he had his military deployment orders revoked for arguing he should not be required to serve under a president who has not proven his eligibility for office.

According to the CEO of Simtech Inc., a private company contracted by the Defense Security Services, an agency of the Department of Defense, the federal government has compelled the termination of Maj. Stefan Frederick Cook.

Cook’s attorney, Orly Taitz, wrote in her blog that Simtech CEO Larry Grice said he would try to find another position within the company for Cook, but nothing is currently available.

This isn’t really that surprising. And there are plenty of layers here to keep Obama out of it. Cook’s status as a reservist is really irrelevant it seems to me. He worked for a company that operates under a DOD contract which required at least certain people to go abroad and he refused to do so. While it does NOT seem equivalent to a soldier defying a direct order, it DOES equate to an employee refusing to do his job. I don’t know why DOD needed to order it though – it seems like Simtech would have done this on its own as any employer under the circumstances would do.
