On Thursday afternoon Siegel muffs a great opportunity to hold Columbia University's President Bollinger to a single standard.
Would he be as rude to an actual mass murderer and war criminal as he was to a Holocaust denier. Or is that censorship?
Would he be as blunt and confrontational to our own lying, petty, pro-torture, war criminal President or do our own get a free ride? (A reader of this blog sent this great mirror image of Bollinger's performance.)
It is interesting to compare Bollinger's downright schmoozy treatment of Pakistani dictator as compared to his treatment of Ahmadinejad. I also noted no public condemnation of the scary Turkmenistan dictatorship during it's leader's visit [video link] to Columbia.
