Legal group comes to aid of Army instructor ousted over Muslim groups' complaints
Fox News ^ | October 5, 2012 | Perry Chiaramonte

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 Dooley’s 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.

“They [superiors] ordered a negative evaluation. He will never have the opportunity for promotion unless this is overturned,” Thompson said.

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.

Totally agree, there's no doubt that Dempsey got the word from Obama through staff to contact Jones. The story afterwords was that Dempsey did it as a private citizen, that's laughable because right after Dempsey's contact his press officer released the story to the press.

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.

Thanks...The Islamists are systematically working to limit the First Amendment and install sharia law wherever possible. I would never have thought that possible but pathetically they're making headway with help from our own government.

I agree, especially since he's the one behind saying the transformation to openly gay in the military has taken place without a hitch, that's a flat out lie.

All kidding aside, you are right center on target. We have become so wrapped up in this PC movement that it prohibits people from thinking critically, and prohibits the plain truth from being told. Just read the Koran for what it says. It will get to the point where you cannot say anything the Bible says for fear of hurting the feelings of any other group or person, not take appropriate actions against people who intend to do this country harm because it would be seen as “insensitive.”

I can't say much because I live in an active duty home. Retirement should not even b e an option for Dempsey. Hang him on harassment of an subordinate.

Dempsey is an islamist or islamist sympathizer himself. Pray God it’s not too late to clean out these vermin when Romney is elected.

Thank You...Excellent work, to me the islamization of America is the most important issue facing our country, except for LTC West, it appears very few in government has the courage to even speak about it.
