Thomas More Law Center President & Chief Counsel Richard Thompson joins former Congressman and retired Army Lieutenant Colonel Allen West of Next Generation TV to discuss the case involving Army LTC Matthew Dooley:
I reported on the case of LTC Dooley. In that column we noted:
In light of the recent terrorist bombing in Boston, national attention is focused on the case of Thomas More Law Center client, Army Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Dooley (pictured above). In 2012, LTC Dooley was fired from the National Defense University’s Joint Forces Staff College for teaching an elective course on Radical Islam because it was offensive to Muslims.
LTC Dooley was reassigned to a weapons integration unit at Fort Eustis, VA. In this new position, Dooley again received an outstanding Officer Evaluation Report (OER). Click here to read LTC Dooley’s most recent OER.
Moreover, LTC Dooley’s case went before the Army Command Selection Board comprised of three generals and two colonels. The board recommended he be retained on the Battalion Command selection list.
However, political correctness again ruled the day. Gen. Lloyd J. Austin, the Army Vice Chief of Staff, ordered Lt. Col. Dooley’s name removed from the command list.
