DE GENOVA UPDATE: Daniel Drezner has a lot more information about the Columbia University anti-war “teach in” where Prof. Nicholas De Genova called for an American defeat, and a “million Mogadishus.”

Though the other speakers weren’t in De Genova’s league, Drezner notes that we shouldn’t lose sight of what the self-described “mainstream anti-war” folks are saying, either.

All told, it’s a disgrace. But — in a way that Columbia isn’t likely to appreciate — it’s certainly educational.

UPDATE: Here’s a statement by Columbia President Lee Bollinger on De Genova’s remarks.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Here’s a post, apparently by De Genova’s college roommate.
