Douglas Feith’s fate

At Georgetown University, at least, it seems to be sealed. Despite excellent teaching reviews and support from unlikely sources, Douglas Feith’s two-year teaching contract apparently won’t be renewed. Oh, it’s on the up-and-up. It was only a two year contract, after all. There was no promise of renewal.

But one wonders whether the colleagues who open-mindedly and hospitably greeted his appointment by calling him a war criminal might have been instrumental in showing him the door. And the administration did have an easy way out. It was only a two year contract, after all.

Did anyone really think the Jesuits of all people were really going to extend a contract to Feith? Had he been some transgendered type, who raves about abortion and global warming, he'd have been in like Flynn.

But he actually suggested some substantive methods for dealing with the pathologies swirling about in the 2d and the 3d world. And for that he was doomed ab initio. I'm surprised he got a temporary assignment.
