Re: Columbia University professor Nicholas De Genova
I would like to call attention to one of the faculty at Columbia University. The included link goes to an article quoting Professor De Genova as stating
"The only true heroes are those who find ways that help defeat the U.S. military" and "I personally would like to see a million Mogadishus."
The article continues to explain how he wishes to see the US lose this war, with a great loss of life to American troops. To be within the borders of the United States and openly advocate the defeat of our military goes beyond the calls for peace and voices of the anti-war movements. Rather, it crosses into the categories of sedition and treason, which is a dangerous line to step over.
I am requesting either a further explanation and clarification of his words, or a disciplinary action by the university against him. Furthermore, should Columbia University fail to take action against such comments, and distance itself from such views, I will be forced to begin boycotting Columbia University, politically and commercially.
Thank you for your time.
