YALE TALIBAN VISA ISSUER MUST BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE



Yale will be Yale but I have a problem with Foggy Bottom giving a student visa to the former spokesperson of the Taliban. Yale wants him because given his past, chances are that he will be"somebody" in the future.

But I do not see why my government has to help this man regain power and influence. And no, I do not buy the excuse that the"lowly" consulate official was blinded by Yale's prestige. I suspect that they are up to their old game of underestimating the enemy or even refusing to believe the Taliban is an enemy.

To alter their behavior, we must demand accountability. We must name names. I doubt he is the only Islamist, or even, Taliban official given an American visa. The American Muslim community does not need more radicals. Increasing the number of energetic, bright capable Islamists is not what the American Muslim community needs. It is also not what the Muslim student associations need. It is what Islamist need and Foggy Bottom helps them get it.

I am thrilled John Fund is on this trail.
