West Point hadn't gone far enough. Fire whoever is responsible for inviting Boykin, she wrote in her online column "On Faith," because his criticism of Islam makes him "notorious." Why, it's nothing less than blasphemy, as everyone who is anyone would agree -- and who else is there?
No one, at least not at West Point. You can bet the replacement speaker will not have identified, studied and himself experienced jihad -- in military terms, the enemy threat doctrine -- as Boykin has.
This makes Boykin's cancellation an information-war victory for the Muslim Brotherhood, something few in Washington or West Point will notice.
But isn't the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt? What does it have to with West Point?
Prominent in the stop-Boykin coalition is the Council on American Islamic Relations, known for sound-byte-ready spokesmen who present an Islamic point of view on TV.
More important is CAIR's place in the Muslim Brotherhood constellation of front groups as an entity founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood's Palestinian franchise, the jihad terror group Hamas.
Such information is documented in "Shariah: The Threat to America," a book that Boykin and I and 17 others, including former CIA Director James Woolsey and former Reagan Pentagon official Frank Gaffney, co-authored in 2010.
This revelation emerged during the 2008 Holy Land Foundation terror-financing trial in a Muslim Brotherhood document. It attests to the presence in the United States of multiple Muslim Brotherhood front groups, including CAIR, which remains an unindicted co-conspirator in that case. The FBI cut off official contacts with CAIR in 2008.
I wouldn't be surprised if the book didn't play some animating role in the Battle over Boykin at West Point, won by CAIR and celebrated in all the best bastions impregnable to fact.
That includes Quinn's Washington Post column.
Not only should Boykin's West Point sponsor be fired, she writes, "that person should ... say 'I'm sorry.'"
