Why elevate this obscure academic with a discussion on his views? Some love to seek putrage just so they can sound off and be outraged. His 9/11 essay needed to be attacked and his opinion called to question. I don't feel the need to go back in time and read his past works to find more thinks to sound outraged against and in turn make this man a counter culture super star.

By fueling the need to Jerry Springer this guy we are probably increasing his profile and speaking fees.

No thanks - I'm out.

Agreed, although I never knew you were in.

It's more useful than that. The story about smallpox-infected blankets has been around for a long time and a lot of people believed it. It's good that it is being debunked.

Also, this makes a case that Churchill is not only an offensive anti-American lunatic, but also a fraud. As other posters have pointed out, academia will tolerate offensive opinions from the left but take a very dim view of academic fraud. So this will turn people against him who might have been in his corner before.
