'Birther' Air Force Sergeant Getting Discharged

Paul Katz/Digital Vision/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) -- Air Force Staff Sgt. Daryn Moran is getting his wings clipped, presumably for insisting that President Obama wasn't born in the U.S.

The U.S. Air Force in Europe said Moran "is currently outprocessing for discharge from the Air Force, which was previously approved by his commander on August 4th."  There was no statement explaining the reason for the discharge.

The final straw apparently came when Moran, a hero of the so-called "birther" movement, refused to report to duty in Germany where he was previously deployed.

Over the past week, Moran has taken to online forums and his Twitter account to denounce the commander in chief as "a criminal" and "the enemy" while claiming that Obama was not born in Hawaii, as his birth certificate has shown.

Moran has also been outspoken about his opposition to the repeal of "don't ask, don't tell," which will allow gays and lesbians to serve openly in the military.
