Yale keeps military recruiters away so as not to send the wrong message to the Taliban

In two successive days, James Taranto’s always entertaining Best of the Web (BOTW) featured links to two Yale-related articles:

In today’s BOTW, we learn that Yale’s faculty is involved in a similar lawsuit to the one that just got hammered by the Supreme Court (Rumsfeld v. FAIR). Briefly, the Yale faculty wants nothing to do with military recruiters on campus because that could be seen as an endorsement of the military’s ban on openly gay members: yaledailynews.com - Supreme Court rules against law schools

Yesterday, he pointed us toward a John Fund piece about a former spokesman for the Taliban now enrolled at Yale. Taliban Man at Yale. However, the Yale faculty has not indicated as to whether this could constitute endorsement of the Taliban’s, how shall we say, not too enlightened treatment of women and gays.

So, bottom line: apparently the Taliban is more welcome at Yale than the US military. As they say, you just can’t make this stuff up.
