Latest Matthew Dooley Items
Americans learned that the Boston bombers initially wanted to launch their terror attack on Independence Day, and the Obama administration found itself on the defensive once again over accusations of a Benghazi cover-up. On the international stage, Russia’s strategic nuclear forces are undergoing a major modernization — while the U.S. scales back. Here's a recap, or wrap, on the week that was from The Washington Times.
Political correctness is always petty, often infuriating, and sometimes does no permanent harm. But occasionally it's a threat to the nation's security. When a paperclip general at the Pentagon surrenders to the enemy at the first sound of the popguns, the harm can be permanent.
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.
Before the Boston Marathon bombings, the Obama administration argued for years that there is a big difference between terrorists and the tenets of Islam.
A military college course taught by a decorated Army officer "was overtly negative with respect to Islam" and used "extreme" hypothetical situations to discuss war options, says a Pentagon report sent to Capitol Hill.
When Army Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley last year began teaching a class to fellow officers on the dangers of radical Islam, he seemed to have landed in a perfect spot. Today, Col. Dooley finds himself at a dead end while being targeted for criticism by American Islamic groups and Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
