United States military officials have suspended a course for military officers which taught that America's enemy is Islam in general, not just terrorists.
Officers on the course also learned that the US might ultimately have to obliterate the Islamic holy cities of Mecca and Medina without regard for civilian deaths, in the manner of the attacks on Hiroshima and Dresden.
The Pentagon suspended the course in late April when a student objected to the material.
The teaching in the military course was counter to repeated assertions by US officials over the last decade that the US is at war against Islamic extremists - not the religion.
The FBI also changed some agent training last year after discovering that it, too, was critical of Islam.
