It might seem that Cole is just another leftist professor. And in fact, he really is just another leftist professor.

But then there is this:
Top military prosecutor at Guantanamo Bay visits Law School

Col. Lawrence Morris, Law ‘82, the chief prosecutor of the Guantanamo military commissions, will be the next guest for the “On the Issues with Mike Gousha” series at Marquette University Law School, Wednesday, April 2, at noon in Eisenberg Hall, third floor of Sensenbrenner Hall. Morris will discuss his role at Guantanamo and offer a perspective on the upcoming trials of six suspected al Qaeda conspirators.

Morris, who will be prosecuting the alleged planners of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, was commissioned into the United States Army as a military intelligence officer. He has also has served as chief of the Army’s Trial Defense Service and was the chief lawyer at West Point Military Academy.
Morris is a Marquette Law School grad.

Of course, the primary sponsor of the Cole speech is the hard-left Sociology Department (aka Social and Cultural Sciences), while the Law School itself is doing the Morris speech. But the net result is that people who want can hear both sides of the issue.
