On its home page, the Daily Caller flags Charles Johnson’s story with the heading above. Clicking on the story shows the headline to be the more prosaic but perfectly serviceable “Supporter of Iranian dictatorship brought Chuck Hagel to Rutgers for 2007 speech.” Charles Johnson reports:
A pro-Hezbollah, pro-Hamas candidate for the Iranian presidency, a man linked to Iranian-controlled front groups, brought former Republican Nebraska Senator Chuck Hagel to speak at Rutgers University in 2007, according to another professor on campus.
Hooshang Amirahmadi, who led Rutgers’ Center for Middle Eastern Studies when Hagel came to campus, is the founder and president of the American-Iranian Council. He arranged for Hagel’s speech on March 2, 2007, the faculty source told The Daily Caller.
As I said in connection with John Kerry, and I probably shouldn’t have said it the first time around, “Leffingwell is the best revenge.” Better to paraphrase Wordsworth: Allen Drury! thou shouldst be living at this hour.
