Israeli war criminals at US universities

I am not surprised at the eagerness by "elite"--how I hate that word--schools in the US to hire former US generals.  Why should the news be surprising?  When Amram Mitzna finished his stint as a commanding occupation general over the West Bank in the late 1980s, he accepted an offer at the Kennedy School at Harvard University.  I was teaching at Tufts University at the time, and once sat across from him in a subway car.  You can imagine what went through my mind at the time.  Well, no, you can't.
