Taking Offense at the Department of Defense

In the Washington Times, Bill Gertz discusses some of the U.S. Defense Department’s “outreach programs” for Muslim groups. Yeah, that’s right — outreach programs:

Stephen Coughlin, a specialist on Islamic law on the Joint Staff, met recently with Hasham Islam, Deputy Defense Secretary Gordon R. England’s close aide. The officials said Mr. Islam, a Muslim who is leading efforts for the Defense Department’s outreach to Muslim groups, sought to convince Mr. Coughlin to take a softer line on Islam and Islamic law elements that promote extremism.
Mr. Coughlin came under fire from pro-Muslim officials after a memorandum he wrote identified several groups that are being courted by Mr. Islam’s community outreach program as front organizations for the pro-extremist Muslim Brotherhood.

Wow, Stephen Coughlin sure is an affront to the United States, isn’t he? The SOB has the audacity to do his job? He’s got to go!

Remember when the only “outreach program” the Defense Department did involved B-52’s, missles and a hoard of highly trained Marines? Now when we’re attacked we send a platoon of school psychologists.

It’s clear that, instead of guns and bombs, political correctness is the greatest weapon the enemies of America have, and they intend to use it. That we’re allowing them to wield it freely is evidence that it’s time for new leadership from top to bottom.
