Must not say that Islam encourages terrorism

 Under Obama administration guidelines, for intelligence officers - and for that matter, law enforcement, Homeland Security and military personnel - to talk about Islamic jihadism and shariah as the motivation for terrorism can be a career-ending offense.

For example, on May 10, 2012, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey, used a press conference to denounce a highly decorated and up-and-coming Army officer, Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Dooley, for teaching an elective course at the Joint Forces Staff College using an approved curriculum.

 According to Gen. Dempsey, what prompted this extraordinary action was that a student - who it turns out had not actually been enrolled in Col. Dooley's class - "was concerned that the course was objectionable and that it was counter to our values...our appreciation for religious freedom and cultural awareness. And the young man who brought it to my attention was absolutely right. It's totally objectionable."

At the core of what was so "totally objectionable" is the fact that students were exposed to information that made plain the gravity of the threat of which Sen. Feinstein warned: the supremacist, totalitarian Islamic doctrine of shariah and the jihad or holy war it obliges adherents to perform. 

Col. Dooley's promising career was cut short and the files of his institution and that of the rest of the national security community have been purged of all such information deemed by unidentified subject matters experts engaged for the purpose to be "counter to our values."

Islam doesn't encourage terrorism, these days Islam personifies terrorism.

If that was ever a religion of peace those who believed it so should be hanging their heads in deepest shame.

This is obviously a setup to silence needed discussion by senior military students. It's interesting that one of the school's stated values is academic freedom.

Why does a student go directly to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to complain about a course's content and not to the school's commandant?

Why does the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff use a press conference to attack a junior (to him) officer other than to send a message to all officers to shut up or have your career ended? This violates every leadership principle if was ever taught. Praise in public; criticize in private.

This is part of the Muslim-in-Chief's Marxist administration's plan to weaken and demoralize the US military, and show favor for his Muslim brothers. The only people left at the top of the military are bureaucrats dressed like military people, and who are devoted Obamunists. That's why you're seeing our enemies around the world pushing in from all sides.
