Columbia University's President Bollinger accomplished three things by allowing Iran's President Amadinejad a platform. Bollinger modeled the normalization of "dialogue" with our era's Hitler; he gained for himself a world platform in which he indulged his ego (and tried to appease his donor base) by saying many of the "right" things; and he exposed the West's weakest spot, namely our willingness to engage in fruitless and endless debate with evil instead of defeating it on the battlefield.
Last night, on the O'Reilly Factor, Medea Benjamin, of Code Pink, kept urging America to talk to Iran and Hezbollah, rather than "fight" with them militarily. (I am not sure if she includes al-Qaeda here as well).
