SAYS - PLEADS FOR MERCY FROM COURT

FACES UP TO THREE YEARS IN SLAMMER

The Army flight surgeon who risked his military career and retirement benefits to make a point about Obama's birth certificate (or lack of same), begged for mercy Wednesday from a court martial panel at Ft. Meade, Md.

"I'm sorry, I made a mistake," Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin said as he tried to keep from being sent to prison for deliberately missing a deployment flight to Afghanistan. The doctor told the stone-faced jurors he would "go now," if he had it all to do over again.

Hindsight is always 20/20, and the decorated physician, facing at least three years in the slammer, did his best to convince the panel he was contrite and truly sorry for disobeying orders.

Of course, Lakin had little choice but to plead for leniency. Whether his tear-filled eyes convinced anyone of anything will be seen in the next 24 hours. For now, the colonel must contemplate what a mess he is in, and how he got there.

DECK STACKED AT FT. MEADE COURT-MARTIAL

It seemed almost naive to us for him to think that he would get any justice in a military courtroom. We called it a kamikaze mission at the time, while expressing respect and admiration for Lakin's courage to stand up to the power of the President and his bootlickers at the Pentagon.

Once the military court judge ruled that Lakin had no right to "discovery" or even to call expert witnesses on his behalf, the much-decorated flight surgeon saw the handwriting on the wall. He had hoped that he might beat the count against him of missing his flight to the war zone, but no such luck. This was the only move he could make. Everything depends on the jurors not sucking up to Obama and hammering the colonel, and expressing mercy to a man caught up in something that frankly blew up in his face.

It doesn't really matter if Obama was born in Kenya or on the Moon. No way is Congress or the Supreme Court going to remove him without riots in the streets. Better to just survive the next two years and beat him at the ballot box.

Sadly, Lakin's military career is over. If he gets jail time, his problems have just begun. By losing his medical license, he will be hard-pressed to earn a living. It will be interesting to see if those who egged him on in this suicide mission, are willing to give a hand to a man of principle who has lost about everything he has.
