Top brass crush career of Army officer who warned of jihadists
Washington Times ^ | April 28, 2013 | Rowan Scarborough

Posted on 04/30/2013 9:37:45 AM PDT by neverdem

The Pentagon’s 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 general’s 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 Army’s vice chief and now chief of U.S. Central Command. He ordered Col. Dooley’s name removed from the candidates list, said Mr. Thompson, who added that he had read the “official use only” memo.

News of Col. Dooley’s 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. Dooley’s...

--snip--

Col. Dooley’s downfall began in October 2011 with a letter sent by 57 American Islamic organizations to John O. Brennan, then President Obama’s 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...

No.

This has been Obama's goal with the military.

This is evidence of how successful he has been at moving around the top brass until he has now in place a team that shares his affection for our enemy.

We are no longer merely incapable of naming our enemy...it is now illegal to do so.

It seems more and more that 9-11 really DID kill us.

“Islamophobia” invented.
Sodomy made legal nationwide.
Same-sex “marriage” being foisted on us for the first time.
“Hate-crime” laws extending to more contrived groups.
Push for more and more restrictive gun laws.
Expansion into government-run health care, by Bush and beyond.

Tell me how we’ve improved since the attack? (Holding ground isn’t improvement.)

The senior service colleges are supposed to be bastions of academic freedom, encouraging the next generation of senior leaders to think outside the box.

This isn't just an attack on one officer's career, it's an attack on the officer corps and the imposition of an extreme form of political correctness.

In the face of the Boston bombing and Ft. Hood murders. This regime is so evil.

"But after 18 years of hard work, family sacrifice, six deployments and outstanding officer evaluations, Matt’s dream was shattered by Gen. Dempsey."

I hope he at least gets his 20 in for a retirement pension. After that, Foxnews should have him on speed dial to put him on for some future terrorist event so he can say, "I don't want to say I told you so, but I told you so"...

My hope and prayer is that people within ALL of the government agencies and departments - DOD, CIA, FBI, DHS, etc - realize exactly what it means to have a foreign enemy combatant in our White House, who just a year after he took office felt a need to explain privately to the Egyptian ambassador why he hadn’t yet implemented the “Muslim agenda”. Obama said the Muslim world needed to be patient with him because he had to get Obamacare passed first and then he would focus on the “Muslim agenda” which he supports because he was and still is a Muslim.

Since it can’t be said in the military, I’ll say it here: the agenda that all Muslim sects agree on is the destruction of the US and Israel and the institution of worldwide sharia. And Obama HAS been working on that agenda very hard - as evidenced not only by the arming of our enemies, Michelle Obama’s yukking it up with Osama Bin Laden’s son Hamza at the hospital after a vigilant citizen tackled him at the Boston bombing and before he was jetted away to make sure the CIA didn’t actually capture him, etc... but also within the US government itself - as we see in this instance as well as others.

Obamacare itself is now considered a “tax” that applies to non-Muslims but not Muslims who give their “charity” to an shariah-compliant Muslim organization that calls itself a health cooperative. IOW, the subjection tax for infidels - codified into law already.

Here is how it works: General Austin was advised by either the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs or Obama that he remove LtCol Dooley’s name from the command selection list, OR General Austin himself would be out of a job and the Army. General Austin chose not to do the honorable thing.

Political Correctness:

”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 hasn’t already.

PASS IT ON!!

THEN PASS THE KOOL AID!!

As a kid, I used to read about numerology in New Ingenue magazine.

Some links to the significance of the number 57 in Islam.

The Glorious Quran And The Number 57

The Last Verse in Bible vs. Quran - Chapter (57)

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'.

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.

My husband is a Lutheran pastor so we are in a health plan set up by the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod. I imagine there is something similar for Catholics. Yet neither the Lutheran nor the Catholic plans can refuse to provide abortion coverage under Obamacare. We don’t have that religious liberty any more.

The Muslims do.

That tells you everything you need to know about where Obama is coming from, and what his pals in Congress are willing to go along with.

And Chief Justice John Roberts went right along with it, even though the “swing” justice was livid with him for doing it.

IOW, there is NOTHING to stop full-out sharia in America, if Obamacare is any indication.

” - - - chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Gen. Dempsey publicly condemned Col. Dooley’s teachings - - - “

This public action by General Dempsey is an act of a coward.

All business and management schools agree that public criticism of an employee is the surest indicator of a lack of courage in confronting an employee in private, IOW, cowardice.

The Benghazi Coward in Chief B. Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, a legal citizen of Indonesia, routinely uses this same method of cowardly management, but calls it “framing.”

It would appear that this Gen. Lloyd J. Austin III, is one of the Generals left that told Obama he had no qualms about going to war with Civilians in America.

In order to reach the rank of General in Obama’s military you have to first agree that having queers in the military and Combat for women is fine, and then you have to agree to turn the military on Civilians.

The destruction of America is Obama’s dream and he has plenty of help in doing it. Both in Congress and in the Military.
