Not Columbia's Finest Moment

While Columbia University awaits their provided platform for President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad , the U.S. military has announced Sunday that Iran is smuggling missiles and other advanced weapons into Iraq:

BAGHDAD — The U.S. military accused Iran on Sunday of smuggling surface-to-air missiles and other advanced weapons into Iraq for use against American troops.

The charge comes as Iran's leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is set to begin his first full day in New York City where he plans to speak at Columbia University ahead of his address to the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday

Military spokesman Rear Adm. Mark Fox said U.S. troops were continuing to find Iranian-supplied weaponry including the Misagh 1, a portable surface-to-air missile that uses an infrared guidance system.

Other advanced Iranian weaponry found in Iraq includes the RPG-29 rocket-propelled grenade, 240 mm rockets and armor-piercing roadside bombs known as explosively formed penetrators, or EFPs, Fox said........... (link)

Patterico has an excellent post up concerning Iran’s presidents appearance here.

And this is my comment left a Patterico's post:

"As valuable as rigorous scholarship may be in understanding the world, it has its limitations"......from Taylors article.

"And this defines the state of our "enlightened" higher educational system in the 21st century. The next question for President Bollinger would be if Osama Bin Laden were available, would he be provided a platform? Perhaps if Jeffery Dahmer had been allowed to speak at Columbia, we would have understood his "taste for humanity" too.".........Rovin
