John Fund’s OpinionJournal column “Taliban man at Yale” was perfectly timed to coincide with the announcement of the Supreme Court decision in FAIR v. Rumsfeld. The Yale angle is of particular interest to me. I’ve been writing about the FAIR litigaton since I witnessed Yale Law School’s reception of Navy Judge Advocage General recruiter Brian Whitaker on campus in the fall of 2003. What I observed among other things and tried to document in “Yale v. U.S. military, round 2” was a virulent passion that seemed inimical to the spirit of an academic institution.
Yale’s amicus brief in the FAIR case is accessible here. I wonder if there is anyone with a sense of irony on campus who might juxtapose Yale’s position in the FAIR litigation with Yale’s reception of Taliban Man at Yale.
