Ex-Terrorist and Law Professor Bernardine Dohrn:

Given an opportunity to disavow her violent criminal past as a member of the Weather Underground via a challenge in The Daily Northwestern, she instead appears to justify her actions based on the fact that she believes that she was engaged in a fight against "the illegal, immoral war against Vietnam and the organized terrorism of my government." She also appears to claim that any attempt to question her current views about her past activities constitutes "McCarthyism," as if questioning an ex-terrorist regarding whether she still believes in terrorism is somehow beyond the pale. (H/T: Overlawyered.)

UPDATE: The exchange at issue took place in April 2005, not this year as I initially thought. Still, it's somewhat newsworthy given the recent controversy over Dohrn's husband, partner in crime, and fellow academic, Bill Ayers.
