University statement on Justin Martin tweet

We have become aware that Justin Martin, associate professor in residence at Northwestern’s campus in Doha, Qatar, has tweeted the following:

“Happy 9/11 more than 8,441 civilians died in Yemen this year helped by US arms dealt to Saudi Arabia & UAE. The US is complicit in far more terror than it has ever suffered”

As his Twitter profile states, his views are his own.

Northwestern University finds it disgraceful that he makes light of the horrors of 9/11. This is insensitive and deeply disappointing, particularly on the anniversary of the terror attacks.
