Why does Georgetown keep Doug Feith on as a Professor?
http://explore.georgetown.edu/news/?ID=15320

Douglas J. Feith Joins Georgetown Faculty
Georgetown University today announced that former United States Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Douglas J. Feith (L78) was appointed Visiting Professor and Distinguished Practitioner in National Security Policy. Beginning Fall 2006, he will teach a course on the Bush Administrations strategy behind the war on terrorism to students in the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service.

I am delighted to welcome Doug Feith to our community of scholars and scholar-practitioners, said Robert L. Gallucci, dean of the School of Foreign Service. He brings a combination of legal, foreign and defense policy-making experience that I am confident will enrich campus discussions on a wide range of critical international issues of the day.

In addition to his teaching commitments, Feith will conduct seminars and other educational activities for students in the School of Foreign Service and the broader University community.

2. Doesn't that man have a reputation for being really stupid?
He sure LOOKS stupid. I can't imagine any serious student taking a class he taught....

10. If I remember correctly
Wasn't he the one Tommy Franks called, 'pretty much the dumbest guy on the planet'?

He sure hasn't done anything to make me think Tommy Franks was wrong.
His recent interview with Wolf Blitzer basically cemented it in my mind, as a matter of fact.
Not only did he look like a total asshat trying to lie, the lies, themselves, were pretty damned stupid too.

4. It tells me that Georgetown isn't the place to be,
if they would allow an imbecile like that in there.

8. You have to admit...he's got some big balls...
even Jon Stewart said that.

At the same time, starting a war and killing 655,000 people is "inappropriate".

9. Follow The Money
