Anti-McCrystal Protests at Yale


Hey Hey, Ho Ho, General McCrystal’s got to go!

The New Haven Register reports that some townsfolk and at least one student have honored General McCrystal — who has been hired to teach at Yale this semester — with a good old-fashioned protester’s welcome:

Local peace advocates gave retired Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal a decidedly unfriendly welcome Wednesday on the first day of classes at Yale University. About a dozen protesters, including one Yale student, carried signs and chanted that McChrystal should be tried for war crimes, rather than welcomed to the campus as a teacher.

. . . “Shame on Yale, put McChrystal in jail,” shouted Debbie Maltesta, one of the organizers of the protest, as the small group repeated the chant.
