Harvard logic: Let's invite failed UN leader to commencement

WHO leader TedrosDespite evidence he winked at China’s deadly coronavirus cover-up when the virus was spreading around the world, the leader of the World Health Organization is set to address Harvard graduates at their May commencement.

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director-general of the WHO, will speak at the School of Public Health, The Washington Free Beacon reports.

Yet it is now known the director-general allowed China to repeatedly lie to its close ally, the WHO, without punishment. The international medical group even repeated China’s dubious claim there was no human-to-human transmission when the virus began spreading, the Beacon points out.

Reacting to the invitation, Richard Holt of Project 21 says he would be disappointed as a Harvard student to learn the school invited such a controversial figure who was involved in the worldwide pandemic.

“There's so many more impressive people they could have got to do that,” he says, “people who have really accomplished something, people who've done something to help our society and contributed.”

According to the Free Beacon, Harvard lauded the director-general’s “great insight” and his “political leadership,” but the Beacon went on, paragraph after paragraph, reminding its readers how the WHO failed the world. The group's medical experts, for example, privately complained about China's cover-up but publicly praised its communist leaders. 

Donald Trump, angered by the WHO failing its most basic mission to warn the world of a pandemic, withdrew U.S. funding as punishment. Joe Biden, like many other orders, reversed that decision.
