Anti-McCrystal Protests at Yale

by Nathan Harden

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.
