He would have been dismissed in any Army for discussing on public fora the army's strategic vision and the lack of success thereof. Such things are simply not done regardless of opinion, conviction or rightfulness and active duty Officers should not play columnists on such issues unless authorised to do so. This is one of those things that separates the military from the civilians, right to free expression is something you give up when signing on the dotted line.

To be targeted for his faith is downright incorrect and morally abhorrent though IMHO.
