While I agree with you for the most part, we do have (as a Nation) obligations to many of our Allies as to how we speak of and about them, within reason.
Therefore, they and we in return, have a right to expect that they aren't 'badmouthing' us without justification.
No matter how a Military or Govt. official feels personally about the French, Germans, Swiss or any other nation or for that matter, most religion, 'badmouthing' is strictly regulated, as it should be.
But this was a course that was obviously pre approved to be taught at the University at one point in time or another.(unless we are to believe that this University allows 'open' classes and materials, and I don't believe that, NO University in it's right mind would allow that)
So unless he was 'injecting' his own personal perspectives and veiws, how is he to blame for this? Simple, he's a scapegoat for an Administration that already has a reputation for B.S. 'apologies' to the radical fundamentalists of the Islamic world.
