Visit To Columbia University

I found it immature and ridiculous that Columbia would invite this man to come speak at their school and then introduce him in such a way. While I don't agree with anything the president of Iran stands for and I feel that most of his beliefs and judgements are incorrect, I would never invite someone as a guest and then treat them that way with no warning.

I think the president of the school felt pressure for having invited him and figured this was the best way to get out from under that pressure. I think it just made him look like a j@ck@ss.

Look at the bright side - he sort of said "the holocost might have happened", that is a first. I am with you on this one - don't invite in the first place, then you won't have to be rude as your backpeddling defense when you figured out you should not have invited him in the first place. Hopefully they learned something!
