Legal Group Comes to Aid of Highly Decorated US Army Instructor

Glad some good guys are stepping up for Lt. Col Matthew Dooley.

"Attorneys for Lt. Col Matthew Dooley, a West Point graduate and highly-decorated combat veteran, was an instructor at the Joint Forces Staff College at the National Defense University, where by most accounts he won praise from students and faculty alike."

"But when Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey excoriated Dooley during a Pentagon press conference in May, characterizing his course, “Perspectives on Islam and Islamic Radicalism” as objectionable, unprofessional, and “against our values,” Dooley's once-bright career effectively hit a dead end, say his backers."

What I understand from this is that the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff thinks that it is against American values to learn about America's enemies. Fabulous.

You'll be relieved, I'm sure, to know that this perspective puts him right in line with CAIR. 

What could possibly be wrong with that?
