West Point professor calls on US military to target legal critics of war on terror

“An assistant professor in the law department of the US military academy at West Point has argued that legal scholars critical of the war on terrorism represent a ‘treasonous’ fifth column that should be attacked as enemy combatants. In a lengthy academic paper, the professor, William C Bradford, proposes to threaten ‘Islamic holy sites’ as part of a war against undifferentiated Islamic radicalism. That war ought to be prosecuted vigorously, he wrote, ‘even if it means great destruction, innumerable enemy casualties, and civilian collateral damage’.”
