Former Taliban spokesman now a student at Yale University.... takin' a terrorism class, for cryin' out loud....!!

Astonishing news at opinionjournal.com today.... in a *****Five Star, must read column by John Fund. My jaw dropped to my breastbone upon hearing that the former terrorist spokesman for the Taliban in Afghanistan is now in the United States, where he is a student at Yale University (GWB and John Kerry's alma mater) and taking a course titled "Terrorism---Past, Present and Future."

Sort of an Alice-in-Wonderland moment that leaves you wandering around looking for the Mad Hatter to find out what time it is....

And this terrorist wasn't on Homeland Security's watch-list.... WHY..!??!

"In some ways," Mr. Rahmatullah told the New York Times. "I'm the luckiest person in the world. I could have ended up in Guantanamo Bay. Instead I ended up at Yale." One of the courses he has taken is called Terrorism-Past, Present and Future...."
