It's the endowment, stupid

According to Bill Roggio, the Taliban are making a comeback along the Pakistani border of Afghanistan. It would be interesting to know if anyone has asked Yale student Hashemi for his views on this resurgence. It seems Islamic terror leaders (former and otherwise) have become quite the fad in the Ivy League. Now Columbia has invited Qaddafi to speak by video at a conference his regime is sponsoring at the institution. (Columbia isn’t answering questions about Libyan money, but then Harvard doesn’t answer questions about Saudi money either.) But look at the bright side. At least Qaddafi isn’t a pathological misogynist like the leaders of the Taliban. And, in other areas, Harvard appears to be getting nervous.
