The article reports on the effort of the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush to limit the teaching of the Iraq war to students. Many conservatives such as David Horowitz, Laura Ingraham, Roger Kimble, and Sara Dogan assert that the academy is dominated by left-wing professors who indoctrinate students with antiwar advocacy. The author debated Horowitz last March 2006 in Chicago, Illinois on the topic of the Iraq war in the classroom and beyond. He charged not only that professors impose antiwar views on students, but also do so indiscriminately in courses unrelated to war. Tactically, Horowitz wants to confine critical thinking on the war to relatively few courses.
