That Lawful Order Issue

Today in a stunning development, the Military rescinded those orders.

This has set a precedent heretofore unknown. The entire US Military can now not only question it's orders, a requirement of their duty when they believe that an order is given illegitimately, but can expect that their orders will also be rescinded should they question the legitimacy of the CIC who is the ultimate Authority in Command. In other words, Obama.
Ms Taitz is quoted by WND as saying: “"We won! We won before we even arrived," she said with excitement. "It means that the military has nothing to show for Obama. It means that the military has directly responded by saying Obama is illegitimate – and they cannot fight it. Therefore, they are revoking the order!"”

[ cf Breaking: Major has orders revoked, by questioning Obama's legitimacy ( emphasis mine ) ]
Well.... there we go!

No longer can the whiners in the ProWarMovement snivel about loyalty to Great Leader, and how it is a soldier's duty to blindly obey illegal orders.

They need to speak now, or clearly they will have opted to assert, in compliance with UCMJ law, that a soldier is under no constraint by an unlawful order.

Now, though, it will be interesting to also see how we get to this alleged confession that the Military had nothing to show. That way goes into a majikal space... Since at best the DOD has opted to work around the problem, by not engaging in 'the fight'. This leaves the Court with no obvious problem that they can remedy. In much the same case that the Supreme's were limited in their options after Padilla was passed to the federal court system.

All of which raises still more questions about lawfare!
