That is from the course once taught- for eight years- by Lt Col Matthew Dooley to officers at the Joint Forces Staff College in Norfolk. The story was buried after it was reported (exc ept in the Muslim press!), and Col Dooley was removed as a teacher and “suffered” a reprimand. Some punishment.
And we wonder why they hate us.
Colonel Dooley is back in the news, though, this time for threatening a lawsuit:
The Army officer who once taught that the U.S. ought to consider “Hiroshima tactics” for a “total war” on Islam has put America’s top general on notice for a possible lawsuit. Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley is accusing the government of concealing “the truth about Islam” at a time when proponents of his view of an inevitable clash between Islam and the West have succeeded at fanning precisely those flames.
On Thursday, attorneys for Dooley told Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey that Dooley is considering “a potential civil action,” said Marine Col. David Lapan, a spokesman for Dempsey. The written notice does not indicate that they’ve actually filed a lawsuit against Dempsey.
But Dooley’s lawyers, who have defended one of the most prominent anti-Islam voices in the United States, aren’t just flirting with legal action against the chairman of the Joint Chiefs. They’re launching a PR strike as well. A press release announcing that Dooley has retained them accuses Dempsey of compromising “the final bastion of America’s defense against Islamic jihad and sharia, the Pentagon” to “the enemy.” And it’s language that comes as Americans worry about Islamic radicals targeting U.S. embassies in the Middle East.
As Danger Room first reported in April, Dempsey shut down an elective course Dooley taught at the Joint Forces Staff College in Norfolk, Virginia, which is under the auspices of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The course instructed senior officers at the lieutenant colonel, commander, colonel and Navy captain level that “there is no such thing as ‘moderate Islam,’” and that wartime protections against civilians of Islamic countries were “no longer relevant.”
This may seem bad enough, but when you learn that the lawyers handling this case are from the Thomas More Law Center, an entity cofounded by Tom Monahan, the pizza magnate and prominent Catholic?
That they are defending this genocidal creep is only the latest of their odd choices. They have defended American soldiers who were accused of atrocities in Iraq. They defended Pastor Terry Jones, the Quran burner.
The stated mission of the organization is this:
The Thomas More Law Center is a national nonprofit public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, dedicated to the restoration and defense of the religious freedom of Christians, time-honored family values, and the sanctity of human life. It also supports a strong national defense and an independent and sovereign United States of America.
That somehow national defense and American sovereignty are married to religious freedom and family values is what one may expect from Americanist Christians.
But that they proclaim “the sanctity of human life” while defending a man who called for indiscriminate slaughter of Muslims and the destruction of their holy cities, citing Dresden, Tokyo, Hiroshima and Nagasaki ?
That is absolutely shameful.
And that none of this stirs outrage among conservative Catholics?
