The Iranian president came to town– Bollinger’s speech

Just watched the introductory Bollinger. (http://youtube.com/watch?v=tACSopIZVdk ) Honestly, I was stunned by such a speech given by the president of a top university in America. At least, I would expect him to show some wisdom, knowledge, and high mind (not sure how to put this in English). Indeed, such a speech can be given by anyone. It is very low mind . Maybe he should read more of Noam Chomsky to know more about his own country.

He might be under a lot of pressure to give such a speech. From where I came from, you have to have a very strong ability if you want to stick to your principles. Under the pressure, it seems that Bollinger doesn’t have much ability.
