Do Columbia Professors Plan to Visit Iran to Apologize to Ahmadinejad?
by Candace de Russy
The question tells the tale, which has been posted at MehrNews.com in Tehran.
As Winfield Myers notes at Campus Watch, if this story is accurate, it will be another abject day in the history of Middle East studies at the university:
Professors at Columbia deny that there is a plan afoot to send a delegation to Tehran. If they are correct, the Mehr report nonetheless shows that the Iranian president continues to garner propaganda value from the ill-conceived decision to hand him a prestigious forum at the university.Note: Postings in "Campus Watch in the Media" do not necessarily reflect the views of Campus Watch.
