An Open Letter to Ward Churchill: My Brother, the ‘Eichmann’

An open letter to Ward Churchill:

My
brother Chris was a 1985 graduate of the University of Colorado, the
father of three young children and a compassionate, respectful and
generous man. He stood in defense of our environment, volunteered his
time and money in support of human rights, and gave unselfishly to help
disadvantaged, vulnerable members of our society. He spoke openly
against unjust government policies, and followed a private ethic of
compassion. Chris was also a U.S. government Treasury bond broker for
Cantor Fitzgerald, and therefore by your definition was a "little
Eichmann."

At
8:46 a.m. on Sept. 11, 2001, you claim that my beautiful brother Chris,
a "technocrat" in your words, received his "befitting penalty." While
Chris rarely used a cell phone in his work (much less self-importantly
brayed into one), he did make one call that fateful day. At about 8:30
that morning, Chris bantered back and forth with his 4-year-old
daughter to get her to say that she loved him
