So the invitation is a sweet-heart deal. Bangladeshi news paper New Nation reported that Gen. Moeen was invited by the President of Harvard University which should have been the case for a Army Chief of a nation. However, Dr. David C. King, a Lecturer in Public Policy at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government is the host, not the Harvard University. Bangladesh government sought Dr. David C. King's advice for election reform and wanted to appoint him as special consultant during his visit to Bangladesh. For this reason he invited Gen. Moeen to come to his school and to speak to his class and probably finalize the deal of him working as consultant. Money talks .... There is a definitely a conflict of interest. But who cares?
Gen. Muhammad Ershad also had a sweet-heart at University of Pennsylvania (another Ivy League University). The gentleman this case was Dr. Craig Baxter who was a political consultant to Bangladesh Government and a admirer of Ershad Adiminstration during his regime. The recently published Ayub's Diary has been edited by Dr. Ctaig Bacter who is currently a Professor Emiritus of Politics & History at Juniata College.
