Skip to comments.Top brass crush career of Army officer who warned of jihadists

The Pentagons top brass has dealt another blow to a decorated Army officer who was fired last year as a war college instructor because of his teachings about radical Islam, his attorney told The Washington Times.
A four-star generals rejection of Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley for consideration for command of a combat battalion likely means the end of a promising Army career of an armor officer who was decorated for valor in Iraq and received glowing evaluations.
Last year, Col. Dooley underwent an Army command selection board review after he was transferred from the Joint Forces Staff College in Norfolk, Va., to a weapons integration unit at Fort Eustis, Va.
The review board, comprising three generals and two colonels, voted to keep Col. Dooley as a candidate for battalion commander, his attorney, Richard Thompson, told The Times.
The board, however, was overruled by Gen. Lloyd J. Austin III, then the Armys vice chief and now chief of U.S. Central Command. He ordered Col. Dooleys name removed from the candidates list, said Mr. Thompson, who added that he had read the official use only memo.
News of Col. Dooleys setback has emerged as some researchers of radical Islam are criticizing the Obama administration for downplaying the Islamic connection in a string of attempted and successful terrorist attacks, including the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15.
Mr. Thompson, president of the Thomas More Law Center in Michigan, said the blame for Col. Dooleys...
Col. Dooleys downfall began in October 2011 with a letter sent by 57 American Islamic organizations to John O. Brennan, then President Obamas counterterrorism adviser and now CIA director.
The groups, which include two tied to the Muslim Brotherhood, which calls for global Islamic law, demanded that the government scrub its teaching on Islam. The White House complied...

Sniff. You’re 8 months old. How could you possibly know what FReepers have known for years?
My nose itches.
A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
By spreading this definition around, perhaps we can employ one of the more effective methods of deflating and defeating the fools who practice and promote it: RIDICULE.
Unless stopped and soon PC will DESTROY Western Civilization -- if it hasnt already.
PASS IT ON!!
THEN PASS THE KOOL AID!!
The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) (formerly Organization of the Islamic Conference) is the second largest inter-governmental organization after the United Nations which has membership of 57 states spread over four continents. http://www.oic-oci.org/page_detail.asp?p_id=52
Some links to the significance of the number 57 in Islam.
Volume 9, Book 84, Number 57: Narrated 'Ikrima: Some Zanadiqa (atheists) were brought to 'Ali and he burnt them. The news of this event, reached Ibn 'Abbas who said, "If I had been in his place, I would not have burnt them, as Allah's Apostle forbade it, saying, 'Do not punish anybody with Allah's punishment (fire).' I would have killed them according to the statement of Allah's Apostle, 'Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.'"
Apostasy is punishable by death. * Mohammed said, "Whoever changes his Islamic religion, kill him." Vol. 9:57
Quran (8:57) - "If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember."
Also consider that on 9/11, 19 hijackers managed to hit three locations. 19 x 3 = 57 Just sayin'.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
So 57 American Islamic organizations petitioned Brennan (isn’t he a Muslim?). Look who is running our military now. GOOD GRIEF
This stuff just makes my blood boil!
That n00b is on my possible troll list.
Thats it then. America has been taken over by muslims. Its over.
Gen Austin is a Black man. http://www.centcom.mil/images/stories/leaders/130322_genaustin.jpg
Thanks for the link.
No more warrior officers, just perfumed princes flapping their wrists and cackling like hens about diverthity.
If Col. Dooley has his 20, he needs to retire and get elected to Congress, like our FRiend Col. West did.
We can rid ourselves of the anti-American cockroaches who infest our government, but it will take some time, effort and money to do so.
You know what Arrowhead, I'm not good at it worth a damn BUT TheOldLady and her FRiends are impeachable. They own the Viking Kitties! If there is a troll in the house, we will know soon!
I know, and I have outed several trolls. They hang around birther and homo threads.
Seriously? Is this true that Muslims are exempt from Zippytax?
If this is so, we all need to get out of Zippytax by creating our own health cooperatives.
Yes, it’s true that Muslims are exempt if they claim that they are a member of something that calls itself a Muslim “health cooperative”. By being exempt it means that the “health cooperative” doesn’t have to meet the requirements that insurance companies have to meet. Conceivably they could pay out nothing for anything and still be OK, unless they’ve also got requirements for what qualified as a “Muslim health cooperative”.
The tactic of jihadis has always been to camouflage their terror organizations as “charities”. If I understand correctly, Muslims are required to tithe (I think it’s 5%?) so there is always a steady stream of income, yet I’ve never heard of Muslim charities such as hospitals, schools, aid organizations, etc. I’ve heard of Muslim organizations to push for “Muslim rights”, or to coerce government into submitting to Muslim demands. I could look up and see if I can find Muslim “charities” that actually do anything charitable... Supposedly the Muslim Brotherhood was a “Muslim charity”, but in the Middle East now they’re revealing how “charitable” their work really is... It’s a terrorist organization. Same with the “Holy Land Foundation”, which was supposedly classified as a Muslim “charity”.
Won’t work for Christians or other infidels to set up their own health cooperative. Only membership in MUSLIM health cooperatives qualifies a person for exemption from Obamacare. The Amish are also exempt, but everybody else is subject to the Obamacare “tax”.
Just like sharia demands. Right here in the US of A.
