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

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...

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...

Your statements most likely echo the same many Freepers have on this issue. We are literally being taken over from within.

Col. Dooley is pursuing an administrative appeal inside the Army. If that fails, his grievance will be decided in federal court/

Any bets on him following Lakin's footsteps right to a cell in Leavenworth?

Butter, here’s what mostly happened. On January 14, 2009, one week before the saddest day in American history, January 20, when an illegal alien stole the White Hut. On 1/9-09 there was a “secret” meeting with SCOTUS, unreported, where possibly the Chicago-GODFATHER-Thugs-like took John Roberts aside, “whispering softly in his ears... remember you have small children, don’t you?” So just be careful at what you do, and later he discovered what happened to Bill Gwatney and Andrew Breitbart keeling over on the street from “natural” causes. Happened on March 1st. last year, the same day after talking with Sheriff Arpaio and HIS presser that day.

John Roberts and other judges were publicly humiliated at a SOUA where all the DNC Ass-clowns gave a standing ovation enough for Roberts to endorsing obamaScare. From that day on in January 2009 EVERYbody and EVERYwhere went mute and muzzlinged from SCOTUS and all the way down, CONgress, States, Municipalities, law enforcment, all media and even the military!!!

“The biggest HOAX ever perpetrated on the American people.” Do you get it???

The legalities are in question. One article I read said that 16 states allow health-cost-sharing cooperatives to exist apart from insurance regulation. In the other states the cooperatives may be subject to the same requirements as all the other health insurance companies under Obamacare if the state defines them as “insurance companies”.

Here are a couple of the articles I read on the subject:
