Why did Yale slam the door on Afghan women?

OpinionJournal writes A statement from Yale University, defending its decision to admit former Taliban spokesman Ramatullah Hashemi, explained that he had "escaped the wreckage of Afghanistan." To anyone who is aware of the Taliban's barbaric treatment of the Afghan people, such words are offensive--as if Mr. Hashemi were not himself part of the wrecking crew. It is even more disturbing to learn that, while Mr. Hashemi sailed through Yale's admissions process, the school turned down the opportunity to enroll women who really did escape the wreckage of Afghanistan.
They were not interested in people that escaped the wreckage in Afganistan. The liberals at Yale hate the US, like most liberals do, and they wanted someone who would say bad things about this country, rather than people who were thankful for what we did.
