Muslim Influence in Pentagon Prevails; Material on Radical Islam "Purged, Outstanding Army Officer "Disciplined," TMLC Enters Case
ANN ARBOR, MI The Thomas More Law Center announced today that it is representing U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Dooley, a 1994 Graduate of the U. S. Military Academy at West Point. In April 2012, LTC Dooley, a highly decorated combat veteran, was publicly condemned by General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and relieved of his teaching assignment because of the negative way Islam was portrayed in an elective course entitled, Perspectives on Islam and Islamic Radicalism.
The actions against LTC Dooley, an instructor involved with this elective, follow a letter to the Department of Defense dated October 19, 2011 and signed by 57 Muslim organizations, demanding that all training materials that they judge to be offensive to Islam be purged and instructors are effectively disciplined.
Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center commented, We are privileged to represent Lieutenant Colonel Dooley. He has honorably served his Nation for 18 years and effectively carried out every assigned mission with distinction. He served as Aide-de-Camp to three different General Officers and deployed to Bosnia, Kuwait, and Iraq for a total of six operational and combat tours. During that time he received numerous awards and decorations. Now after a lifetime of service to his country, he is being sacrificed on the altar of political correctness and expediency by the Army he so loyally served . . . and loves.
Thompson observed, In order to appease Muslims and the White House, General Dempsey and the Department of Defense rushed to punish LTC Dooley. In the process, they violated not only our Nations core principles of free speech and academic freedom guaranteed by our Constitution, but also, a number of the militarys own regulations dealing with academic freedom and non- attribution policies of the National Defense University (NDU) to which LTC Dooley was assigned. They violated the right to due process of law and even by-passed the Universitys Provost, who under NDUs own rules has primary responsibility for adjudication of this matter.

While serving as an instructor at the Joint Forces Staff College (JFSC) , a branch of the National Defense University established by Congress, LTC Dooley took on the herculean task of guiding students through one of its most vibrant but controversial elective courses. In grappling with the most dangerous aspects of radical Islamist ideology, students in the elective were encouraged to debate and affirm or dismiss a number of notions regarding Radical Islam as well as confront what strategic U.S. actions were feasible or infeasible. Dooley assumed his instructor position within the National Defense University with an understanding that years of prior-approved course content, established guest speakers, and doctrinal teaching methodologies were still safe to discuss.
The Thomas More Law Center played a pivotal role in defending LtCol. Jeffrey Chessani, USMC, another loyal military officer, who was ordered to face a court martial to appease the Iraqi government and anti-war politicians, especially Congressman John Murtha (D-PA). A military judge dismissed the charges against Chessani on the grounds of undue command influence.
Parroting the FBIs reason, namely, political sensitivity as the reason for not thoroughly investigating Army Major Nidal Hasan, which ultimately led to the Ft. Hood Massacre, General Dempsey on 24 April 2012 ordered a review of instruction that was disrespectful of the Islamic religion to ensure cultural sensitivity.
The result is certain. Officers and instructors see what has happened to LTC Dooley, and will refrain from telling the truth about Islam or confronting the difficult strategic challenges facing our nation for fear of jeopardizing their professional careers. The Pentagon has still apparently not learned from the politically correct policies that led to the Ft. Hood massacre.
Our military, while conducting the difficult task of threat analysis, does not have the luxury of hiding from potentially offending those who would do us harm. It is precisely our refusal to consider the often irrational, volatile nature of those who do not think with our western world view that has led us to this crisis of conscience. Those people who subscribe and enforce the current environment of political correctness are the ones most often surprised by incidents like the terrorism at Ft. Hood and the uncivilized behavior currently roiling North Africa and the Middle East.
Rather than thinking and acting bravely, PCers strike at our cherished First Amendment in a vain hope of buying friendship with a force we still do not understand that neither respects us nor appreciates civility. Despite the militarys decade long effort to come to a more sophisticated level of cultural awareness, we have missed the most critical and basic lesson of this war: weakness itself is a provocation.
This is a threat to our National Security. In effect, our own government is applying Islamic Sharia law to prevent any criticism of Islam. The chill on instruction is already happening at the Joint Forces Command College of the National Defense University, to which LTC Dooley is assigned.
Claire M. Lopez, a former CIA agent and strategic policy and intelligence expert, recently commented on General Dempseys order:
The final bastion of America's defense against Islamic jihad and sharia, the Pentagon, fell to the enemy in April 2012, with the issuance of a letter from General Martin E. Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, re-issuing his earlier order that all Department of Defense (DoD) course content be scrubbed to ensure no lingering remnant of disrespect to Islam.
All U.S. military Combatant Commands, Services, the National Guard Bureau and Joint Staff are under Dempsey's Muslim Brotherhood-dictated orders to ensure that henceforth, no U.S. military course will ever again teach truth about Islam that the jihadist enemy finds offensive (or just too informative). To all intents and purposes, DoD Secretary Leon E. Panetta likewise has acquiesced to a Muslim Brotherhood takeover of U.S. military education.
In an astonishing and unprecedented Pentagon News Conference on May 10, 2012 carried nationally on C-SPAN, General Dempsey, with Secretary of Defense Panetta sitting at his side, personally attacked LTC Dooley, a subordinate Army officer who honorably served our Nation, and was subsequently prohibited from publicly defending himself.
Once LTC Dooleys name was publicly revealed, immediate threats to him and his family prompted security measures to be taken for their protection.

.... "U.S. Army Lieutenant General (Ret.) William Jerry Boykin, in a recent World Net Daily radio interview, confirmed that people with high security clearances connected to the Muslim Brotherhood hold important positions in every major federal agency including the Pentagon and the Department of Defense.
The Muslim Brotherhood is a radical Islamist organization that has vowed the destruction of America from within.

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on Tuesday ordered the entire U.S. military to scour its training material to ensure it doesnt contain anti-Islamic content, Danger Room has learned. The order came after the Pentagon suspended a course for senior officers that was found to contain derogatory material about Islam.
The extraordinary order by General Martin Dempsey, the highest-ranking military officer in the U.S. armed forces, was prompted by content in a course titled Perspectives on Islam and Islamic Radicalism that was presented as an elective at the Joint Forces Staff College in Norfolk, Virginia. The course instructed captains, commanders, lieutenant colonels and colonels from across all four armed services that Islam had already declared war on the West, said Lt. Gen. George Flynn, Dempseys deputy for training and education.

The world has gone MAD!! This .. from the leader of the our military! This dastardly, brown nosing, weak general. He's not worthy of the incredible troops under his direction. Lord, have mercy. Attacking and upbraiding our amazing military warriors confronting the raw truth .. they .. the last bastion of freedom.
..God bless and protect our troops ..
Dempsey’s the worst CJCS since Lyman Lemnitzer.
how the heck are the taking over our military??? shouldnt someone ask?
what was all that kkk the poster is raging about..sumthun sick there.
“Brown nose” is all too appropriate, since that little twerp Dempsey is more concerned about making sure we have a Queers in the Military appreciation day, than calling a Muslim terrorist a Muslim terrorist!
I despise all of them...damned pussified pentagon perfumed princes!
Blaming our troops
Afghan security forces, our supposed allies, are slaughtering American troops. Thirty-three soldiers have been killed by green on blue attacks this year alone. The situation is so bad that the training of Afghan forces has been temporarily suspended.
How has the Pentagon responded?
By blaming our troops.
To avoid offending them, US commanders are putting troops through intense Muslim sensitivity training. Among other things, theyve been ordered to:
* Wear surgical gloves whenever handling a copy of the Koran.
* Never walk in front of a praying Muslim.
* Never show the bottom of boots while sitting or lying across from a Muslim, which in Islam is considered an insult.
* Never share photos of wives or daughters.
* Never smoke or eat in front of Muslims during the monthlong Ramadan fasting.
* Avoid winking, cursing or nose-blowing in the presence of Muslims all viewed as insults in Islam.
* Avoid exiting the shower without a towel.
* Avoid offering and accepting things with the left hand, which in Islam is reserved for bodily hygiene and considered unclean.
Troops who violate the sensitivity rules face severe punishment.
Military officials who have done tours in Afghanistan are outraged that brass would even suggest US troops are partly to blame for their own murders.
I would like to see a public affairs officer explain to the press where showing the bottom of your shoe to a Muslim or shaking with your left hand was legitimate grounds for murder, growled one US Army official.
The intelligence official notes that if there are any truly obnoxious cultural offenses, they are committed by Afghan trainees quartered inside our bases.
They like to stand on our toilets and poop all over them, he said.
Why? They refuse to touch the toilet seats used by the dirty infidels theyre training and living with.
And there it is .. full blown PC and certifiable insanity! Subjecting our decent, brave and sane troops and forcing them to conform to the ways of these savage neanderthals!
Remember the deluge of patriotic folks who volunteered for the military after 9/11 under a resolute CIC, Pres. George W. Bush? Can you imagine ANYone submitting to this lunacy voluntarily now? If this continues .. we’ll probably be looking at another draft .. or we’ll just be a crippled, weak, a distant memory of this nation. God help us ..
Like Bernanke, the evils Bush II did lived on AFTER him and were re-incarnated in his treasonous successor, Barack HUSSEIN Obama.
Looks like Dempsey is the kind of empty suit General who climbs the ladder of success in military hierarchies by oscullating the derriere of anyone above him who can influence his rank.
What a piece of crap.
Like Bernanke, the evils Bush II did lived on AFTER him and were re-incarnated in his treasonous successor, Barack HUSSEIN Obama.
Completely idiotic, BDS conflation of facts ..
Dempsey is an insult to his uniform and has said the the Iranian Mullahs are honorable or trustworthy people-—typical obama lackey. OIF vet

“how the heck are the taking over our military??? shouldnt someone ask?”
The purpose of PC in any institution is to take over MORAL control of that institution, no matter what righteousness is waved around as the stated purpose.
The time to speak up was 40 yrs ago. Today is the endgame...
The only thing idiotic thing here are the Bushbots who continue to thrive despite the continued illustrations of all the problems that incompetent President created which then were piggy-backed upon and expanded by his equally incompetent - or deliberately destructive successor.
Bernanke was appointed by Bush II - a TOTAL failure.
Chief Justice Roberts - TOTAL disappointment.
How about the “Patriot” act??
How about Homeland Security??
How about the FAILURE to defend our borders from invaders which dumped millions of new illegals, who are Democrat fodder, on our shores?
I could go on and on. But I won’t. Point made.
The work of an OBVIOUS genius. (Sarcasm)
Pull them out. Bring them home.
I’m with you on that. Bring them home.
They wouldn’t like me...I’m left handed!
