U.S. Military Still Using "Jesus rifles" in Afghanistan
As the press release accompanying the 2010 report Manufacturing the Muslim Menace from Political Research Associates described, Cincotta's report,
"reveals a common set of conspiratorial myths propagated in varying degrees by [anti-Muslim] speakers... These narratives equate Islam with terrorism and depict a covert effort by American Muslim “stealth jihadists” to infiltrate U.S. institutions for the purpose of bringing down American infrastructure and, eventually, implementing Sharia Law."
In May 2012, Wired magazine revealed that an elective course at the United States Officer's Staff College, offered to "senior officers at the lieutenant colonel, commander, colonel and Navy captain level" and taught by Army Lt. Col. Matthew A. Dooley, instructed future U.S. military leaders that,
"a “total war” against the world’s 1.4 billion Muslims would be necessary to protect America from Islamic terrorists... Among the options considered for that conflict: using the lessons of “Hiroshima” to wipe out whole cities at once, targeting the “civilian population wherever necessary.” "
The May 2012 story came on the heels of a 2011 Wired report exposing extensive use of anti-Islam books, materials, and speakers in FBI counterterrorism training. Course materials obtained by Wired, for its May 2012 story included curriculum material from Colonel Dooley's course that stated,
"Some actions offered for consideration here will be seen as not "politically correct" in the eyes of many, both inside and outside the United States (Examples: Decision Points considered in PH III where Saudi Arabia threatened with starvation, Mecca and Medina destroyed. Islam reduced to cult status).
This model presumes Geneva Convention IV 1949 standards of armed conflict and the pursuant UN endorsements of it are now, due to the current common practices of Islamic terrorists, no longer relevant or respected globally. This would leave open the option once again of taking war to a civilian population wherever necessary (the historical precedents of Dresden, Tokyo, Hiroshima, Nagasaki being applicable to the Mecca and Medina destruction DP in Phase III.
As Wired writers Noah Shachtman and Spencer Ackerman described in their May 2012 story,
"For the better part of the last decade, a small cabal of self-anointed counterterrorism experts has been working its way through the U.S. military, intelligence and law enforcement communities, trying to convince whoever it could that America’s real terrorist enemy wasn’t al-Qaida — but the Islamic faith itself. In his course, Dooley brought in these anti-Muslim demagogues as guest lecturers. And he took their argument to its final, ugly conclusion. “We have now come to understand that there is no such thing as ‘moderate Islam,’” Dooley noted in a July 2011 presentation (.pdf), which concluded with a suggested manifesto to America’s enemies. “It is therefore time for the United States to make our true intentions clear. This barbaric ideology will no longer be tolerated. Islam must change or we will facilitate its self-destruction.”"
Colonel Dooley's elective course has since been terminated, and Dooley removed from his position at the Staff College. In a followup Wired September 21, 2012 story, concerning a threat from Dooley to sue Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey for allegedly violating Dooley's religious freedom, Shachtman and Ackerman reported additional details on Dooley's controversial course: "Materials distributed by Dooley’s guest lecturers suggested inaccurately that President Obama is a Muslim. Similar material taught to the FBI in 2011 compared Islam to the Death Star in Star Wars."
