-Columbia Dean answering criticism of Columbia's decision to allow Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad a forum to speak on Columbia University's campus.

No WONDER conservative idealogues bash Ivy League schools and academia in general - you have douchebag Deans going on Fox news to invite HITLER to afternoon lectures!
