UW-Madison lecturer singled out for 9/11 truth views

Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle, who apparently has nothing better to do, has gone after an Islamic studies lecturer named Kevin Barrett, who has questioned the government's "story" about what happened on 9/11.

Notes The Capital Times of Madison, Wis:
Barrett has drawn fire for his plans to teach an Islamic studies course next fall that questions whether the U.S. government was involved in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in Washington, D.C., and New York City.
Some state lawmakers, conservative commentators and Republican gubernatorial candidate U.S. Rep. Mark Green have called for Barrett's firing.
Doyle, a UW-Madison graduate, said the issue of Barrett's employment is not "a matter so much on what his political views are" as his fitness to teach students.
Doyle described the letter, dated July 5, as "sort of a diatribe about a lot of different issues."
"One of the things you want at the university is someone who bases their teaching on facts. If there's any institution that should be devoted to a factual analysis of what's going on, it should be the university," he said.
Doyle added, "This is for the university to look at, but I think they really have to take a hard look at that."


Note to Gov. Doyle: Why don't you work on improving your state's economy and leave the real thinking to people who care about what our government is up to. I suspect that if you really sought the truth, Gov. Doyle, you'd be shocked by what you discovered. 9/11 was an inside job.
