Professors' Association Calls for Dismissal of Former Commander of the Guantanamo Prison Camp

| | TrackBacks (0)

Students and faculty at University of North Carolina, Charlotte called for the removal of John Bogdan from his position as the associate vice chancellor for safety and security. American Association of University Professors chapter president John Cox said Bogdan's hiring "had already prompted us, a lot of professors, to get together and begin to talk about the serious and deep problems at the university, as central problems of democracy and of what kind of a university is this that hires someone who presided over the Guantanamo Prison Camp for two years?" he said. (Home to the author of the 'Torture Memos' UC Berkeley comes to mind.) "Why would the university even seek to hire someone, why would they be attracted to someone with that resume?"
