I think his point is that the guy is being brought in as a research fellow. I may have missed it, but it doesn't look like he'll be doing any teaching. At least, that's my impression. If I'm wrong, then let me know.

Your point that he may be giving information is a relevant thing to consider, but seems rather separate from what DarkSasu was saying.

What about it?

People of value, to my knowledge, are also in positions to get amnesty if they can help the government out. It's not unheard of at all.

Most common example of this would be when someone involved in a crime committed by another person might get offered a pardon for relaying helpful information to help solve said crime.


when it should be life

But it wasn't.


second he could be getting, then giving information to extremists,

You act as if you honestly think that this guy isn't going to be on a short ass leash.

I see no problem with it. Everyone can learn a lot from what he knows and it can even help prevent some people from being recruited. If he is sincere about it why not let him do something good to help make up for what he has done in the past? I know I personally would love to hear what he has to say about how it all goes down and what his thoughts are on how it can be prevented.

I am a firm believer in rehabilitation, so unless given a reason to doubt, I don't see a reason to get my torches and pitchforks out just yet (especially if his position is just as a research fellow)

also if he felt very sorry for what he did he should have stayed in jail his full sentence, at least, nothing can bring back the people he has killed
he should be in jail for LIFE
Same with soldiers?
Same with the youth trapped into terrorism (ideas and actions), but then years later get put against that terror?
Who do we need, what can/could we change?
Sure, be carefull they don't start up something or planning something (something could bring the past into the present of thoughts/feelings or other things).
