Bollinger Blasts Ahmadinejad

Columbia University received a fair share of criticism for hosting an event featuring Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Columbia President Lee C. Bollinger, nevertheless, made good on his promise to pull no punches with Ahmadinejad. Here’s how President ended his opening remarks:

“I am only a professor, who is also a university president, and today I feel all the weight of the modern civilized world yearning to express the revulsion at what you stand for. I only wish I could do better.”

Good for President Bollinger. Here’s the AP coverage: “Ahmadinejad Questions 9/11, Holocaust.”
