Military officer files formal complaint against Islamist censors
A top United States counterterrorism expert, who taught a course that familiarized military officers with the U.S. war against radical Islamists was fired from a military college and had his course removed from the curriculum, is retaliating against university officials, according to a U.S. police counterterrorism expert on Friday.
The Thomas More Law Center (TMLC), a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Mich., reportedly filed a formal complaint with the president of the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (Commission) challenging the accreditation of the National Defense University (NDU) on behalf of Lt. Col. Matthew A. Dooley (U.S. Army) .
The police source, Sean Hanrahan, told the Law Enforcement Examiner that the officer/instructor was informed the course materials would be revamped to exclude references to Islam and use terms such as extremists or militants. In addition, the course instructor, Lt. Col. Dooley, was removed from the faculty permanently for telling students that practitioners of Islam are responsible for terrorism.
"One can only wonder how much protection students who practice Catholicism and Christianity would receive from this Administration and its media sycophants -- such as TV host Bill Maher -- when they verbally attack Christians," said former police commander and military officer Mike Snopes.
