An Army lieutenant colonel who was on the fast track until Muslim groups complained about a course he taught on radical Islam has a legal foundation in his foxhole.
Attorneys for Lt. Col Matthew Dooley, a West Point graduate and highly-decorated combat veteran, was an instructor at the Joint Forces Staff College at the National Defense University, where by most accounts he won praise from students and faculty alike. But when Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey excoriated Dooley during a Pentagon press conference in May, characterizing his course, Perspectives on Islam and Islamic Radicalism as objectionable, unprofessional, and against our values, Dooley's once-bright career effectively hit a dead end, say his backers.
This was a very heavy-handed approach from the very top, said Richard Thompson, chief counselor and president of the Thomas More Law Center, a national nonprofit public interest law firm handling Dooleys case. He had a brilliant career ahead of him," Thompson said. "Now, he has been flagged.
Following Dempsey's criticism, Dooley received a negative Officer Evaluation Report (OER) after acing them for the past five years, according to Thompson. In military circles, the bad OER was a scarlet letter.

This bull $hit is going to our downfall.
Correct, the enemies are within now thanks to the turkey in the WH.
Malicious CAIR and other Islamic Lobbyists penetrate are security too?
Go Thomas More Center! St Thomas More certainly knew what it was like when the government ran wild...
The thing that really scares me is not only is BGen. Dempsey mismanaging the military, but he’s pressuring private citizens (his call to Terry Jones regarding the video, something he was clearly told to do by Obama).
Sounds to me like it’s Dempsey we should dump.
As future CIC, Romney should promise to overturn this and encourage Dempsey to retire before Jan 20. Then he should ferret out all the other rats and reassign them to Gteenland.

...but he lost his head over the prevailing storm.
The weird part of this cruel joke is, the last time anyone checked, the CAIR membership was under 3000 TOTAL, but the loud sandmaggots claim to represent a gazillion domestic muslims!
The first thin a new Romney administration should do is fire Gen.Dempsey.
He’s bad for the morale of the U.S. forces.
Dempsey is very likely a homosexual. There is no information about his spouse or children. The queers run the white house and are trying to ram through the homo agenda in every institution.
God Bless Our American Troops
