To the Editor:

Meghan Clyne’s recent column (“The hypocrisy of the left in its campaign against war,” 10/30) gave an accurate description of the current state of activism in the United States and at Yale.

I, for one, have been impressed by the ability of the left to simultaneously denounce the United States for both its sexist discrimination and its military action that liberated thousands of Afghan women from the oppression of the Taliban.
