D'oh! Ward Churchill, the Tenured Plagiarist of Ethnic Studies, Is a Chronology-Challenged Moron!

The day after 9-11, Ward Churchill, the tenured Plagiarist of Ethnic Studies at the University of Colorado, wrote:

"[F]ormer U.N. Assistant Secretary General Denis Halladay [sic, Halliday]... repeatedly denounced what was happening [UN sanctions against Iraq] as "a systematic program . . . of deliberate genocide." His statements appeared in the New York Times and other papers during the fall of 1998, so it can hardly be contended that the American public was "unaware" of them. Shortly thereafter, Secretary of State Madeline [sic, Madeleine] Albright openly confirmed Halliday's assessment. Asked during the widely-viewed TV program Meet the Press to respond to his "allegations," she calmly announced that she'd decided it was "worth the price" to see that U.S. objectives were achieved."(1) [Ward Churchill "Some People Push Back: On the Justice of Roosting Chickens."]

In fact, that idiot Churchill is both fact and chronology-challenged.

Firstly, Madeleine Albright made her remarks on Sixty Minutes, not Meet the Press. Secondly, she made her remarks in 1996, so she could not possibly have been responding to the remarks that Churchill attributes to Denis Halliday in 1998.
