The Rutgers University faculty council has passed a resolution calling for the school to rescind Condoleezza Rice’s invitation to speak at commencement.
The former secretary of state drew the ire of the school’s professors for her “prominent role in [the Bush] administration’s efforts to mislead the American people about the presence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and the existence of links between al Qaeda and the Iraqi regime.”
Her efforts in the administration, according to the resolution,”led to the second Iraq war, which caused the death of over 100,000 men, women and children, and the displacement of millions of others.”
