Is Pentagon being bullied by Islamists?

A law firm that defends and promotes Christian heritage and moral values says it has obtained the written evaluations of an 18-year veteran Army officer who is being disciplined for telling the truth about Islam.

The Thomas More Law Center says it has obtained evidence to prove its contention that the Pentagon is taking its marching orders from Islamic groups in its disciplinary action against Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley, a 1994 graduate of the United States Military Academy. The highly decorated armor officer has been deployed to Bosnia, Kuwait, and Iraq for a total of six combat tours during his career.

But Dooley was recently condemned and relieved of a teaching assignment because he discussed negative aspects of Islam in an elective course entitled "Perspectives on Islam and Islamic Radicalism" at the Joint Services Staff College (Norfolk, Virginia). TMLC has expressed concern about a letter sent out by 57 Islamist groups to several government agencies, including the Pentagon, demanding that action be taken against the teaching of this course content.

Thompson, Richard (TMLC)Richard Thompson, president and chief counsel of the Thomas More Law Center, says his firm has obtained five years of Officer Evaluation Reports (OERs) that Dooley received prior to his dismissal.

"A report indicates superb performance by a top-notch Calvary officer," explains the attorney. "Major Matt Dooley -- this is when he was a major -- is unquestionably among the most dedicated and hard-working officers I have ever known."

Thompson contends Army Chief of Staff General Martin Dempsey is gripped by political correctness.

"And that is something we want to stop," he tells OneNewsNow. "That we correct the miscarriage of justice that has occurred to Lt. Col. Dooley, and that officers can honestly educate the people within their command responsibility as to the true threat posed by radical Islam."

TMLC is considering a federal lawsuit if the case is not resolved by administrative remedy.
