Military Police Detain Citizen Reporter and Crew at Lt. Col. Terry Lakin Trial

Dr. James David Manning of The Manning Report is claiming that he and his crew were detained and prevented from attending the Lt Col Terry Lakin court martial trial.
"I and my camera crew while attending the Lt. Col. Terry Lakin trial was detained by military police and threatened with trespassing charges here in Ft Meade Md. We were interrogated for nearly three hours, searched, ask to sign statements and read the Miranda right . They placed us in separate rooms for interrogation, and Capt Farr was placed in a cell block room. They released us after the trial was over."
According to Manning, Lt. Col. Lakin was found guilty of felony charge on “Missing Movement” and he plead guilty to the refusal to obey a direct chain of command order. Court is now in sentencing phase.

Lt. Col. Lakin is the Army doctor who, in his 18th year of active duty service, refused deployment to Afghanistan because he did not believe that President Obama was born in the United States. He made the choice to take a stand and not to follow what he believed were illegal orders. Now it appears that he will pay the price.

YouTube publisher LoneStar1776 wrote - "LTC Terry Lakin has tried in vain to get the same verification from our President that he has been asked to provide countless times in his career, for many jobs, and to obtain a security clearance for the trusted positions he has held within the U.S. Armed Forces."

In related news - WND recently reported that, concerning WikiLeaks, Gov. Mike Huckabee (2008 presidential candidate) said:

"If we want to keep our nation's secrets 'SECRET,' store them where President Obama stores his college transcripts and birth certificate."
