Mr. Speaker, a former deputy foreign secretary and ambassador at large for the rogue Taliban regime is now a ``special student'' at the elitist Yale University. According to Yale's officials, they are proud to have this Taliban student.

He legally entered our country on a student visa, of all things, issued by the State Department. That seems like nonsense to me. This offensive disregard for national security is not only ridiculous, it is frightening, and it has happened before. The hijackers who flew planes into the World Trade Center on 9/11, and who crashed into the Pentagon just down the street from us, entered the United States on, yes, student visas.

What is even more incomprehensible is that Yale University is helping to educate this Taliban operative, who just 5 years ago was touring the United States for the Taliban, spreading propaganda and defending the Taliban's gospel of hate.

Mr. Speaker, the Taliban is against everything freedom-loving people advocate. They advocate public torture, false imprisonment, mistreatment of women, and promotion of worldwide anarchy. Those are not accomplishments to be proud of.

Yale would do well to admit students who are devoted to promoting peace and democracy, not those who so flagrantly advocate injustice, evil, and terror.

That is just the way it is.
