Yale Taliban, cont.

John Fund of the WSJ stays on the story:

Natalie Healy lost her Navy SEAL son Dan in Afghanistan last year when a Taliban rocket hit his helicopter. Ms. Healy, who notes that her son had four children of his own, is appalled at Yale’s new student. “Lots of people could benefit from a Yale education, so why reward this man who was part of the group that killed Dan?” she told me. “I want to tell [Yale President] Richard Levin that his not allowing ROTC on campus is one thing, but welcoming a former member of the Taliban is deeply insulting to families who have children fighting them right now.”
