Muslim Letter Prompted Pentagon to Purge Military Instruction “Offensive to Islam”

Submission. To sharia. via Muslim Letter that Prompted the Pentagon to Purge Military Instruction “Offensive to Islam” | Thomas More Law Center.

ANN ARBOR, MI – A letter dated October 19, 2011 signed by 57 Muslim organizations, was sent to the White House with copies to other federal officials responsible for national security, including Secretary of the Department of Defense, Leon Panetta.  The letter demanded that all training materials that they judge to be offensive to Islam be “purged” and instructors “are effectively disciplined.”

Because many reporters and citizens have asked for a copy of the letter, TMLC is linking to the 7-page letter here, and attaching it to this press release as well.  You may also view it by going to the TMLC website at:  Note the highlighted areas on page 5 of the letter.

This letter was referred to in a previous Thomas More Law Center (TMLC) press release. Click here.

Following that letter, in April 2012, Army Lieutenant Colonel (LTC) Matthew Dooley, a highly decorated combat veteran, was publically condemned by General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and relieved of his teaching assignment at the Joint Forces Staff College (JFSC).  The reason: the negative way Islam was portrayed in his elective course entitled, Perspectives on Islam and Islamic Radicalism.

On May 10, 2012, during a Pentagon press conference with Defense Secretary Panetta seated next to him, General Martin Dempsey expressed negative opinions regarding the Perspectives on Islam and Islamic Radicalism course, characterizing it as “totally objectionable” and “against our values.”  General Dempsey personally committed to removing any similar curriculum from military professional education within the JFSC and elsewhere.

The Thomas More Law Center, a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, now represents LTC Dooley, a 1994 Graduate of the U. S. Military Academy at West Point.

Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center, observed, “In order to appease Muslims and the White House, General Dempsey and the Department of Defense rushed to punish LTC Dooley.  In the process, they violated not only our Nation’s core principles of free speech and academic freedom guaranteed by our Constitution, but also, a number of the military’s own regulations dealing with academic freedom and non-attribution policies of the National Defense University (NDU)  to which LTC Dooley was assigned.  They violated the right to due process of law and even by-passed the University’s Provost, who under NDU’s own rules has primary responsibility for adjudication of this matter.”

Claire M. Lopez, a former CIA agent and strategic policy and intelligence expert, recently commented on General Dempsey’s order:

“The final bastion of America’s defense against Islamic jihad and sharia, the Pentagon, fell to the enemy in April 2012, with the issuance of a letter from General Martin E. Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, re-issuing his earlier order that all Department of Defense (DoD) course content be scrubbed to ensure no lingering remnant of disrespect to Islam.”

The administrative disciplinary procedures against LTC Dooley included removal from his teaching assignment and withdrawal of an outstanding Officer Evaluation Report (OER) concerning the elective course, PerspectivesonIslamand IslamicRadicalism,he had been teaching at JFSC.

LTC Matt Dooley was deployed to Bosnia, Kuwait, and Iraq for a total of six operational and combat tours over the course of his career. He attended the United States Military Academy at West Point, where he graduated and received his commission as a Second Lieutenant of Armor in May 1994.    LTC Dooley has served as a Tank Platoon Leader, Tank Company Executive Officer, Tank Company Commander, Headquarters Company Commander,  Captains Career Course Small Group Instructor, Cavalry Squadron Operations Officer, Cavalry Squadron Executive Office, Regimental Plans Officer, Aide-de-Camp (to three separate General Officers), and Instructor at the Joint Combined Warfare School.  He is a graduate of the Command and General Staff College as well as the Joint Forces Staff College.

LTC Dooley’s awards and decorations include the Bronze Star Medal, the Meritorious Service Medal with two Oak Leaf Clusters, the Joint Service Commendation Medal, the Army Commendation Medal with three Oak Leaf Clusters, the Army Achievement Medal, the National Defense Service Medal, the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal with Star, Medal, the Iraq Campaign Medal with Two Stars, both the Global War on Terrorism Service and Expeditionary Medals, the Armed Forces Service Medal, the NATO Medal, the Parachutist Badge, the Air-Assault Badge, and two Army Superior Unit Awards.

  1. General Dempsey is disgusting! He fails to follow his oath. There is clear evidence that the Republic is being harmed by traitors and agents of foreign powers. General Dempsey is empowering these enemies by failing to protect the Republic for which he swore an oath to protect.

  2. Where Sharia Law goes and is followed, Freedom goes away. The United States Military made the wrong decision to bow down to Islam and allow any of its followers to dictate any of our training materials. Thy only contained the truth about the dangers in Islamic countries. Welcome back to the 7th Century.

  3. These military ‘Leaders’ are even worse than Obama. They have no honor and are sending our troops to face death and demand they respect Islam, the same ideology that has slaughtered over 270 million people since Muhammad. They are traitors and should be treated as such.


  5. Take note of all the signatories from the moslem-American ummah. Just when you think we have all the names…out comes more..umm..basically all of them.

  6. Creeping, this looks like the same John Brennan (the one to whom the letter referenced above re: islamic training materials is addressed) , that of the passport breach being linked to the Trailer film! Could it be?

    From previous article: It is important to note that the CEO of the Analysis Corporation at the time of the passport office break-in was John O. Brennan, who served as a close advisor to Obama in 2008 on matters of intelligence and foreign policy. Brennan also contributed to Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign. Brennan also had a 25-year career in the CIA.

    Presently, John Brennan is chief counterterrorism advisor to Barack Hussein Obama under the official title of Deputy National Security Advisor for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, and Assistant to the President.

  7. His wikipedia entry claims he’s standing second from right in the photo of the ‘situation room’ though its hard for me to tell which one he is

  8. In my first post above I should have said Brennan’s company was linked to the passport breach but it says he was the ceo (the article by Doug Haggaman)
