President Ahmadinejad Arrives Not-So-Quietly
at Columbia University

President Ahmadinejad of Iran is scheduled to address the students of Columbia University in New York in about 15 or 20 minutes. The balloon goes up, I heard on the news, at 1:30 eastern time, USA.

People who would rather not have Columbia play host to the Iranian leader started gathering last night. They intend to make their feelings about having the ayatollahs' agent presence known.

I don't blame them a bit. Some of the demonstrators are expatriate Iranians who fled the Islamic Republic to preserve their freedoms, and quite possibly their lives.

Note! Although I believe that these websites and blogs are useful resources for understanding the War on Terror, I do not necessarily agree with their opinions. 1 1 Given a recent misunderstanding of the phrase "useful resources," a clarification: I do not limit my reading to resources which support my views, or even to those which appear to be accurate. Reading opinions contrary to what I believed has been very useful at times: sometimes verifying my previous assumptions, sometimes encouraging me to change them.

Even resources which, in my opinion, are simply inaccurate are sometimes useful: these can give valuable insights into why some people or groups believe what they do.

In short, It is my opinion that some of the resources in this blogroll are neither accurate, nor unbiased. I do, however, believe that they are useful in understanding the War on Terror, the many versions of Islam, terrorism, and related topics.
